In association with Trinity House, Rural Retreats are pleased to present St Catherine's Lighthouse in Niton, the Isle of Wight. St Catherine's Lighthouse is situated just outside the hamlet of Niton, approximately 10 minutes' drive from the popular coastal resort of Ventnor, the southern most point of the Isle of Wight. The site comprises a terrace of 3 self catering, former lighthouse keepers cottages, Landward Cottage, Gurnard and Penda. There are guided tours of the lighthouse throughout the year (subject to availability). The lighthouse does not have a fog signal.
The Lighthouse grounds are enclosed with a wall but young children should be supervised at all times. There is an excellent real ale pub a 10-minute walk up the hill. Each holiday cottage has a private enclosed courtyard and parking area. Beyond the courtyard there is a communal grass area where children can play. Holiday guests can unload in the parking area adjacent to Penda Cottage.
If you would like to view the lighthouse . 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.
