Belle Tout was very easy to find from the precise directions given on the Belle Tout website. It was conveniently located between Birling Gap and Beachy Head. We were warmly welcomed by Ian who showed us to our lovely room (Shiraz). The room was clean and well proportioned with stunning views over Birling Gap and the Seven Sisters cliffs, and... More

From the moment we arrived to final departure the team made us feel welcome. We had a2 night stay in Shiraz: The rooms are super clean and fresh, with outstanding views. The first night had very strong winds and this just added to the atmosphere of the venue. The sunny weather on Day 2 meant we could explore the area;... More

We spent two nights in this lovely place, staying in the Captains Cabin with views over the cliffs to the sea. We were welcomed by Paul who made us feel like long lost friends. The room was comfortable, beautifully appointed and the attention to detail was terrific. The breakfast was wonderful and set us up for walking on the cliffs.... More

I spent with my wife a long week end at Bell Toute Lighthouse last end of April. It was a fantastic short holiday in such an amazing place. Walking on white cliff paths is a unique experience. The Lighthouse is very clean and the breakfast is very good with many choices (salted and sweet) We had Beach Hut room. It... More

I was lucky enough to be able to finally book a room at the Belle Tout at short notice, as a spur of the moment surprise for my partner. He didn't know where we were heading, and we arrived on a really beautiful clear sunny day over the Easter break, and the views were stunning! Mark was very excited about... More

This is possibly the best weekend away I have ever had in my life (apart from Porto in Portugal, but that's another story). Fantastic views, lovely, clean room, nice breakfast with fantastic views of Beachy Head. Spent some time both nights in the lantern room alone with my partner, watching the sunset, with a glass of wine, listening to Beethoven.... More

After seeing something on TV we just knew we had to visit Belle Tout Lighthouse. When we looked at the website and read about all the different rooms it was the Loft Room that appealed to us most. Everything about our stay was just dreamlike and we couldn't have asked for more. The approach to the lighthouse is magical, the... More

My husband and I spent two nights at the beautiful belle tout. The rooms are small bust very comfortable, but you hardly need spend any time in there for the very welcoming lounge area and fantastic view from the latern room at the top. The lighthouse is right on the South downs way so there is plenty of walking to... More
