private and exceptional location on a hill provides a profound
sense of peace and solitude.
The very top of Gun Point was long ago used as a cannon emplacement
firing out to sea at pirate ships venturing too near the coastline.
The original house was built in 1969 around Gun Point's original
18th-century gunpowder store.
As there were no roads back then, all building materials had
to be brought in by sea to the jetty (shown here) and then trotted
to the site by a donkey named Liz.
The estate remains in the same family and has been completely renovated
to a high standard of updated luxury, reviving the holiday
magic enjoyed at Gun Point decades ago.
