Enjoy a relaxing break at Rock Mount, St Helena’s first, off-grid accommodation, set in the heart of the aptly named Fairyland.

The perfect self-catering location for holidaymakers seeking a quiet eco-escape to completely unwind and be surrounded by nature and mountain views. Where your only care in the world is to light the wood stove for cooking and hot water.

Dark, night skies here are superb for stargazing whilst listening to your only neighbours; crickets and settling fairy terns.
