Fantastic place which is maintained by Ian and his team to a very high standard. The rooms are beautiful with everything you need, there is a big lounge with leather furniture and a log burner, a bright breakfast room where Ian creates fabulous breakfasts with a different special every day, and the lamp room with its wonderful 360 degree views....

This has got to be my favourite b&b ever! We could only get one night but would have loved to stay longer. We had the keeper's loft and it is small but perfectly formed. Everything you could possibly need is available. Ian is very friendly and hospitable. And breakfast, where do I start? It is heaven on a plate! Only... More

A very interesting and original B&B. The lighthouse is in the middle of nowhere - which makes it an ideal base for walks over the cliffy coastline. The location is simply stunning. The breakfast was very good and the owners were really nice. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped.

There's almost 300 reviews of this lighthouse already, and to be honest I can't say anything more than what's already been said. All I can say is go and stay there. The lighthouse is full to the brim with character. The rooms are wonderful and spotlessly clean. The surrounding countryside is sublime. And the host 'Ian' is an absolute gent.... More

This was such a beautiful experience for our party of 5. We came to belle tout to in october following an illness and surgery for my husband. We used the time to relax in the stunning surroundings with friends, and found ourselves sitting in the lamp room each night with a glass of wine, looking out to sea watching the... More

If you want to stay somewhere with fantastic views, first class accommodation (if somewhat small) , great breakfast and welcoming hosts - then this is the place for you. A unique experience to stay in a real lighthouse, renovated to a high standard and the staff make you feel like a VIP. Cannot recommend highly enough. We will be going... More
