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.

This 18th century cottage has been beautifully restored to a high standard using stone, slate and wood. Modern convenience touches make a stay at Rock Mount super comfortable. Electricity throughout the house is supplied by solar energy and freshwater is piped in from a nearby spring.

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

Access to the cottage is via a rough track through pastureland, so a 4×4 vehicle hire is essential.
