About The Lighthouse Keeper's CottageA dramatic cliff-edge cottage built behind a lighthouse which still works today.
Experience the thrill of living on a cliff-edge in this lighthouse cottage. The actual lighthouse is still operating today, minus the loud foghorn however. The cottage is made up of six bedrooms for large groups and has a balcony area for everyone to congregate and watch the birds fly past.
The Lighthouse Keepers’ Cottage is based on the Exmoor Heritage Coast. Pick up the South West Coast Path for hikes to Lynmouth and beyond. Or go inland towards Watersmeet for its wooded valley and archaic tea-garden.
Further afield, Woolacombe Beach can be reached within a 40-miute drive. The swells here make it perfect for surfing.
