Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Hallsands - Beacon Cottage

Sleeps 6, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom

In association with Trinity House, Rural Retreats is pleased to present Start Point Lighthouse. It lies on a dramatic headland above Start Bay in the South Hams between Dartmouth and Salcombe. The Lighthouse was built in 1863, electrified in 1959 and automated in 1993.

Two holiday cottages are available, Landward with accommodation for 5 guests and Beacon with accommodation for 6 guests. 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. For sandy beaches, East Portlemouth, Slapton and Blackpool Sands are within a 20-minute drive.

Guests should note that, as well as walkers passing by the cottage, the lighthouse is open (subject to availability) to visitors from 10am-5pm Easter to October. You are 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 - no children under 11 years, small babies are welcome.

Beacon Cottage is a detached property opposite Landward Cottage. Perched on the cliff edge it enjoys breathtaking views across Start Bay.

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.
