Description

In association with Trinity House, Rural Retreats is pleased to present Beacon Cottage at Start Point Lighthouse.



Beacon (with accommodation for 6 guests) is one of two holiday cottages available at the lighthouse and is a detached property perched on the cliff edge, 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 clifftop walks in both directions. For sandy beaches, East Portlemouth, Slapton and Blackpool Sands are

The drive is shared with walkers, forming part of the South West Coast Path. Guests can use the path to enjoy breathtaking clifftop walks in both directions. For sandy beaches, East Portlemouth, Slapton and Blackpool Sands are within a 20-minute drive of the lighthouse.



Guests should note that, as well as walkers passing by the cottage on the coastal path, the lighthouse is open (subject to availability) to visitors from 10am-5pm Easter to October. If you would like to view the lighthouse, go to or telephone 01803 771802.



You are also reminded that Start Point Lighthouse is an operational lighthouse and there is an electronic fog signal that operates automatically (ear plugs are provided in case conditions are misty).



While the cliff edge is fenced - for reasons of safety, no children under 11 years are allowed. Small babies are welcome.



Access roads to some of the lighthouse sites are narrow with limited passing places and, dependent on the season and site, there is the possibility of overhanging vegetation due to cutting restrictions during bird breeding seasons or other environmental reasons.



Guests should be aware that the lighthouses and equipment need regular and sometimes emergency maintenance. Therefore visits by maintenance staff may occur at any time during the year. However, staff will do their best to ensure guest privacy at all times.
