Sherrin is one of 4 refurbished former lighthouse keepers' cottages at Bull Point Lighthouse in North Devon. The property sleeps 5 people and is perched on a headland between Mortehoe and Woolacombe above the coastline.

The cottage is all on one floor and offers a welcoming stay with a cosy lounge with electric style woodburner, spacious dining room and modern kitchen. When it comes to sleeping there is a king sized double bedroom, twin bedroom and single bedroom, all of which are bright and airy whilst the family bathroom is modern with a bath with shower above. There is also a separate WC too. 

There is a shared outdoor grassed space with seating area which looks out to the stunning panoramic sea views, perfect to sit and take in the sounds of the coast and enjoy the scenery.

The local village of Mortehoe has great shops, pubs & restaurants where you can taste the fresh local seafood. Just a 10 minute drive away, in Woolacombe, there is a Blue Flag sandy beach, great for a day trip. There are plenty of other places to visit nearby such as Lundy Island, Exmoor Zoo & Ilfracombe Aquarium, all perfect for family day trips. 

As the building is located near a small cliff edge the area outside of the fenced perimeter can be very dangerous, so care must be taken especially with children. There is however a coastal footpath which is a great walking route with beautiful seaside and country views.

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.

No smoking. A highchair and travel cot are available upon request. Up to 2 well behaved dogs are welcome. 

Minimum of 3 nights stay. The change-over day during July & August is a Saturday, in these months the minimum stay is 7 nights.
