Near Hallsands, Devon
Views in abundance, sandy beaches to explore, coastal walks to take...relax at this lighthouse in Devon.
Landward Cottage is listed in affiliation with Rural Retreats.
Landward Cottage, which sleeps five guests, is one of two holiday cottages, perched on the cliff edge and available at the lighthouse. A location that offers a simply breathtaking panorama of 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. Guests can use the path to enjoy breathtaking cliff top walks in both directions.
Inside you’ll find three bedrooms and one bathroom. In the living room there is an electric effect woodburner, TV, DVD and CD player, and you’ll find the kitchen has everything you need including an electric hob and oven, microwave, large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. Wi-Fi is provided throughout. Should you be holidaying with little ones, a travel cot, highchair and stairgate are all available upon request. Outside, there is a small gravel area with a stone table and seating, plus parking for two vehicles, with one car in front of the cottage and one other in front of the garage.
The lighthouse is open (subject to availability) to visitors from 10am-5pm Easter to October. If you would like to view the lighthouse, do telephone ahead to book. You’re also of course within easy reach of the beach. For sandy beaches, East Portlemouth, Slapton and Blackpool Sands are within a 20-minute drive of the lighthouse.
For a family day out visit Stoke Beach situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or why not walk some of the South West coastal path taking in the spectacular scenery. The charming seaside town of Salcombe is close by, as well as Dartmoor National Park and plenty of opportunities to enjoy the sea, with Plymouth Boat trips or sea kayaking on offer near Dartmouth. For some English history head to the English Heritage site of Dartmouth Castle.
