To the outside there is a large walled patio to the rear of the property with stunning panoramic views with an abundance of wildlife.

The lighthouse is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are an abundance of small seaside towns with teashops, cafes, shops & restaurants.

Guests should be aware that the lighthouses and equipment need regular and sometimes emergency maintenance.
