Tower Cottage formerly had an Italianate belvedere tower of 4 storeys, with round-

damage. This tower is depicted in an Edwardian photograph in the possession of the
owner of Beach Cottage.
Tower Cottage, with its belvedere, is of similar style and date to Penlee Lodge,
Cawsand (q.v) and 1-3 West Park Cottages (q.v.) which also have a bull nose moulding.
