The Belle Tout Lighthouse at Beachy Head is a hotel with a difference.

Built-in 1832 and decommissioned in 1902, a tea-shop, a home, part-destroyed during the second world war and lovingly rebuilt in the 50's. Owned and filmed by the BBC, moved due to erosion - and now, beautifully restored and renovated.

With 360 degree views of the English Channel, beautiful landscape, countryside and the enigmatic Seven Sisters, Belle Tout is a remarkable place to stay.

With themed rooms such as 'The Captains Cabin', 'Old England' and 'Keepers Loft', the accommodation and facilities will ensure a comfortable and memorable break. There are 6 rooms in all. The original Lighthouse Keeper's bunk room is a quirky option. It's round with feature brick walls and fireplace. You need to climb up the original ladder to the double loft bed.

Guests have use of the resident's lounge with sea views and the lamp room with it’s 360 degree panoramic vista across the South Downs, stunning sea views towards the Seven Sisters in one direction and Beachy Head lighthouse in the other.

There is a minimum stays of 2 nights, except possibly at the last minute. Prices are from £160 a night midweek in low season up to £240 a weekend night in high season for 2 people. A delicious breakfast is included. A discount is given for single occupancy.
