The South West Coastal path passes right past the entrance road to the lighthouse, but the locked gates and the signage all tell you it is not open!
Ok so the road to reach the point is very narrow and winding and sometimes you can feel as if you spend more time going backwards than forward but this is one of the charms of this particular part of the country. In all the years we have been going we have never witnessed an accident. There is a £2... 更多
Very dramatic scenery, with steep cliffs, deeps coves, blue water and sea birds flying along the coast. The lighthouse is not available for visiting by the public, it is now a private house. There is a car park, for which there is a charge and there is a kiosk for drinks, snacks and packed lunches.

The lighthouse may dissapoint as it has been closed for many yrs now; the car... 更多
Although once there the walk and the views were beautiful, the drive itself can leave you nothing short of a nervous wreck! The roads are narrow, steep and bendy. Most drivers are courteous but there are on occasions drivers that cant control there speed, so beware. £2 parking which is well worth it. A lovely little kiosk/ shack to buy... 更多
