Beacon Cottage is listed in affiliation with Rural Retreats.
Beacon Cottage sleeps six guests, and is one of two holiday cottages, perched on the cliff edge and available at the lighthouse. This is a location that offers a simply breathtaking panorama, with sea views to the south and west and across Start Bay to the east.
The lighthouse lies on a dramatic headland above Start Bay in the South Hams, between Dartmouth and Salcombe and was built in 1863, electrified in 1959 and automated in 1993. Start Point lies 4 miles from the main road via narrow country lanes. The final stretch is a half-mile private, walled, tarmac drive which runs along the side of the headland. The drive is shared with walkers, forming part of the South West Coast Path, and makes the ideal base for walkers and cyclists wishing to make the most of the natural landscape.
Inside the house you’ll find three bedrooms and one bathroom. There’s a cosy living room, with an electric effect wood burner to keep you snuggle up to on cool evenings, a fully equipped kitchen and a dining room with views of the sea beyond. On sunny days take your breakfast outside on the decked patio area that overlooks the cliffs and the sea, and enjoy plenty of fresh, sea air and views as far as you can see. You’ll find Wi-Fi throughout and parking for two vehicles.
Take an easy trip to the beach or walk in either direction from your doorstep along the South West coastal path, taking in the spectacular scenery. For sandy beaches, East Portlemouth, Slapton and Blackpool Sands are all within a 20-minute drive of the lighthouse, plus there is the charming seaside town of Salcombe to explore. Darmouth Castle offers you British history in abundance, whilst just outside of Dartmouth you'll find plenty of water sports to try, including sea kayaking.
