A Wonderful Place to Stay

I greatly enjoyed my recent 2 night stay at the Belle Tout on Beachy Head. The staff are so friendly and welcoming, the breakfast is amazing and the location and property are so unique. We were lucky to have perfect weather so enjoyed local walks and sitting in the lamp room for elevated panoramic views.
The way Belle Tout is run makes you feel very much at home. Before going out for dinner you are invited to have a drink in the lounge with other guests if you wish. It's nice to have a bit of chat with the others so by breakfast next morning we were greeted with cheery hellos from all.
The lighthouse is very popular, and many people are repeat visitors, so its good to think ahead for a stay here.
