Start Point Lighthouse
Sleeps a maximum of: 6
Pricing From: £602.00
This detached cottage has accommodation for six guests. It is perched on the cliff edge, enjoying breath-taking views across Start Bay, and includes a decked patio area overlooking the cliffs.
In association with Trinity House, Rural Retreats are pleased to present Beacon Cottage at Start Point Lighthouse. Beacon Cottage, sleeping six guests is one of two holiday cottages, perched on the cliff edge and available at the lighthouse. A location that offers a simply breath-taking 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 breath-taking cliff top walks in both directions. For sandy beaches, East Portlemouth, Slapton and Blackpool Sands are within a 20-minute drive of the lighthouse.
