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. Up to 2 well behaved dogs are welcome for a small additional charge.  A highchair and travel cot are available upon request.
