A former lighthouse, which also served as a lookout tower during World War II, was put on the market and valued at £ 1 million.

The unique property also has four en-suite bathrooms, five reception rooms, a swimming pool and a sauna.

Some of the property's rooms, including the main kitchen, are located in the former lighthouse.

At one point in its history, the former lighthouse was also used by the Coast Guard, who converted the top floor of the lighthouse into an observatory offering a full 360-degree view of the entire area.

Rhys Jordan of real estate agent Purple Bricks said of the property, "It was the Coast Guard headquarters for a while, and I suspect it was them who added the observation room."

He said the ground floor accommodation was used as an office during that time.

"The property has been a phenomenally successful vacation rental that is great," he said, "but the family who own it have decided to take a break and that's why they put it up for sale."

He believes there are several options a new owner could take.

He said, “It could easily go on as a vacation rental or a house and vacation rental, depending on what people wanted.

“The owner's daughter lived here where she lived as a child. So we know this would make a great family home too.

"It's a unique place and living here would be a unique experience – there aren't that many lighthouses for sale."

The lighthouse also benefits from its location on a peninsula that is often reported to be the sunniest place in Wales with very little rainfall.

The area is also considered a prime location for British wildlife. Nearby colonies of kittiwakes, Manx shearwaters, gannets and puffins, as well as dolphins are regularly sighted in local waters.
