  • Serene and calm visit with a lovely cafe nearby with amazing food. There are also sea facing caravans you can stay in nearby too. A little piece of heaven...  more »
  • Walked down to see the lighthouse, there is a lot of national trust area to walk around to. The Lighthouse itself is nice to look at but nothing too special  more »
  • Excellent, cannot recommend this one more. Excellent presentation by the chap about the technical operation of lighthouse, how this lighthouse works, how all the elements in the light house were delivered. The ONLY gripe/statement I would make is parking is a long way away and there's no cafe. We actually parked at a cafe that in fact was closer than the actual parking but be warned, the cafe is down a very rough track and has limited parking. However the little cafe is excellent and a picturesque location and only a nice flat walk to lighthouse.
  • Well worth the walk down the hill ( about 10 minutes ) çars not allowed unfortunately. The tour is informative not just the inside workings but the History of the buildings and area. Some steps used in the lighthouse are steep and need extra care but in general a good place to visit with Very knowledgeable staff on hand . The Only one down side which may change in due course no Public toilets on site , but if you visit the pub up on the hill first!.
