Glorious stay with some glorious and some stormy weather- but that just made it entertaining! The dogs loved Great Mattiscombe Sands and the beach at Hallsands! Would also recommend doing the tour of the lighthouse if you get a chance! Brilliant stay, with wonderful company!

Fabulous stay, great weather. Enjoyed exploring the coast line by foot. Didn't have to use the car at all. Excellent meal at the Cricket Inn.

We had a great stay and the weather was great throughout. We took a tour of the lighthouse (well worth it). If you need to buy anything we recommend Ashby's. There are loads of seals and two beaches that are worth going to where you can see them.

We had an amazing stay and were lucky and happy to see wildlife such as seals and birds of prey up close. The location was amazing. We walked to East Prawle one day... make sure you are fit enough! I think I nearly died on the uphill but it was well worth it! The tour of the lighthouse is well worth it!

Amazing location! Look out for seals, peregrine falcons and sparrow hawks. Trip up lighthouse very memorable. Seafood at Britannia at the beach at Beesands. Stockley Farm excellent for supplies. Blackpool Sands perfect for relaxing.

We came for our honeymoon. We had a lighthouse theme for our wedding as J is a potter who makes lighthouses out of ceramic. We could not have wished for a better time at all. The weather was wonderful, the cottage fantastic. Memories made for the rest of our lives. We will be back. Thank you for a wonderful time.

Came as a surprise 40th birthday break for J as she (we) have always wanted to do a stay at a lighthouse. Could not have picked a better one! Breathtaking views, amazing lighthouse, fantastic cottage, great hamper! Had the foghorn but though it added to the charm. Not intrusive for me! Dogs enjoyed the walks (as we did). Can't wait for our daughter E to be old enough to join us here. Will definitely be back! Thanks to Steve and Fiona for a spotless cottage.

Wonderful, unique location - cottage clean and cosy. Loved the Cricket Inn and The Pigs Nose. Saw seals 2 days running on walk to beautiful Mattocombe Cove. Foghorn is argg! but all part of it - thank you for the ear plugs. Loved watching the light change over the sea and seeing the boats coming and going. Thank you.

Thank you Steve and Fiona for a spotless house. Loads to see between sunrises and sunsets. We had a fantastic week with the weather. One spectacle we had on Monday 19th was thousands of House Martins around the lighthouse, waiting to migrate. The skies are fantastic. The ghost by the way is the extractor fan in the bathroom? .... or is it?

What an exceptional location & accommodation. Only 3 short days, we enjoyed a wonderful and peaceful break. The cottage is immaculate well kitted out and very cosy during winter storms. The welcome basket was a perfect touch and we stopped by the shop on a day out, great walks from here with great bird watch! Thank you for such great hospitality and comfort.

One of the best things about Lighthouse Cottages is arriving at night and then waking in the morning to see how truly remote it actually is. The cottage is well presented and welcoming and one to return to.

A fabulous location with wonderful seclusion and brilliant company has led to a few days escaping our busy lives. Hugh did a super tour of "our" lighthouse and we had some lovely trips out (Dartmoor's Food Festival, Plymouth's Hoe, Kingsbridge and the fashionable Salcombe). We enjoyed the wildlife and saw seals, slow worms and kestrels on our walk. Our two dogs loved their busy days and walked and wagged all day long, they even settled quickly into the stricter regime of no naps on beds and not walking off cliff edges. Overall a really cool holiday with plenty of beaches and good food. We loved the local produce in the hamper that stimulated us to buy local produce throughout our stay - Ruddy's fudge, yum, yum. Heard the fog horn too. S & D, Birmingham

Great cottage. Super clean. Welcome basket a delight. Nothing went bump in the night so we will be back. Dogs truly loved this place. Home from Home. P&P, Birmingham

Our family have spent four days in this lovely cottage. The interior is of a very high standard and all the home comforts are catered for. There are some very interesting places to visit, one of our highlights was going to visit Agatha Christie's house. There is a very good pub nearby called the Start Bay, the food is excellent. We were also very luck to hear the fog horn go off three nights running. We will be returning. The A's, Brighton

A wonderful place to spend a few days. The house is perfect, very comfortable, well equipped and tastefully decorated. Clambered down to the cove and spent a sunny morning on the beach at Mattiscombe Sands. A lovely peaceful holiday. O&L, Wiltshire

A lovely, relaxing few days. Lovely walks in both directions (only 40 minutes to the beach at Hallsands) and the views from the lighthouse were fabulous - felt like the setting for a Hitchcock film! Morrisons in Kingsbridge is good for stocking up on groceries. Fantastic chips at Dartmouth (Rock Fish) and we even managed some of the Regatta. The cottage was perfect. Many thanks. JH, Birmingham
