We had a wonderful stay at this amazing lighthouse on Devon's beautiful rugged edge. With the everchanging 'lighthouse weather' we managed to sleep through the foghorn without the needs for earplugs and avoid most of the rain. Thank you for all the effort you have put into making this such an enjoyable lighthouse adventure.

Absolutely wonderful - I even loved the foghorn!
At last - Start Point - loved the lighthouse weather!
A fabulous 3 days thank you. I even saw seals!

Our eleventh visit to a lighthouse and our first to Start Point. What a beautiful place, walks on the cliffs. seals in the bay beneath the lighthouse and an overly zealous foghorn!

Thank you! We have had a wonderful Easter break, meeting up in this amazing property, watching life on the sea, the returning swallows and other migrants and enjoying the beautiful surroundings.

What a beautiful, warm and relaxing place, we had an incredible stay, weather wasn't so great but we still managed to explore this wonderful area and enjoy the cosiness of the cottage. Best few days. Thank you for having us.

Wonderful half term week at this beautiful lighthouse. The tour of the actual lighthouse is well worth doing. Lots to see and do as well as a trip down memory lane to look at the naval college.

The most wonderful place. We will definitely be back. Heard the foghorn a few times which was not as loud as expected and actually very pleasant to experience. We hope the next guests enjoy it as much as we did.

A lovely stay. We loved the welcome basket and decor. The setting could not have been more unique and stunning and we're thankful the weather co-operated and the fog horn was not in action. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

We have had the most perfect week of cloudless blue skies and sunshine. We felt like the famous five exploring the cove, down the cliff steps and finding sunbathing spots. Such a fabulous spot to escape life and really relax!

Sunshine on 4 out of 6 days. One cannot expect more in a November week. Some great walks around Start Point and Prawle Point. The fog horn went once for around 10 minutes, and it is not really loud. Enjoyed very much of our stay in this remote place. EM, Germany

A fog horn - Yay! It was as melodious as I expected! What a fortunate experience to stay in such a wonderful place. Just the two of us, so romantic just to stay in and self-cater. Happy Holidays! Listening to the fog horn echo out to the sea rolling over, the fog horn was amazing. You must go outside to listen for the full effect! Wonderful. Seal watching from the balcony a delight. Thank you for a well-earned rest. TV, Leeds
