Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in South Hams - Landward Cottage (Devon)

Landward Cottage (Devon) - sleeping five guests in three bedrooms.

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

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 clifftop walks in both directions. For sandy beaches, East Portlemouth, Slapton and Blackpool Sands are within a 20-minute drive of the lighthouse.
