From the moment we arrived we realised Belle Tout is a special place run by special people. Paul rushed out to greet us, collected our luggage and showed us to our room, Beach Hut. All the rooms are gorgeous but Beach Hut has incredible views of the South Downs Way in one direction and the new lighthouse in the other.... More

My wife booked up the Belle Tout for our anniversary. We stayed there last weekend in the Shiraz room, and we absolutely loved it, wonderful views from every window, a really unusual place to stay. The room at the top of the lighthouse was lovely to sit in at the end of the day with a glass of wine. Managed... More

A great and unusual b&b that justifies it's room rates! Set on the top of Beechy Head you will find it hard to match the unique experience that Belle Tout has to offer. From the moment you arrive you are welcomed into a very special haven and with complimentary drinks at sunset overlooking the cliffs you know it is going... More

We stayed for 3 nights in March whilst attending a family wedding. We were met at the door by Ian the manager who helped carry the bags from the car and into our room. He then gave us a tour of the lighthouse and told us a little of its history. We stayed in Old England. Chosen by my wife... More

You know you're on to a good start when the guy who runs the place walks down the driveway to meet you and shake your hand. We were swiftly shown the ropes: door locking procedures, breakfast times and the obligatory tour. Our room was called 'Captains Cabin' - a cosy corner on the second floor with a window facing east... More

We stayed three nights at the beginning of March and although we know the area well were blown away(almost literally) by the stunning views and the quality and friendliness of this bed and breakfast. Paul, Ian and Louise were the perfect hosts, the breakfasts were special,and the whole ambiance make for a unforgettable break. We would love to return and... More

Spent 3 nights at belle tout for my wife's 65th birthday from 23rd to 25th feb. Ian ,Paul and staff were very welcoming and we enjoyed our stay very much. The 1st night was a bit blowy but added to the experience. The full English breakfast was excellent so much so that we did not sample the Specials but they... More

Just returned from a 5 day stay at the Belle Tout lighthouse. Wonderful warm welcome from Paul who was a gem throughout our stay greeting us with drinks when we returned late in the afternoon and making sure everything was perfect for us. The breakfast was delicious - from the full English and daily specials cooked to perfection by Paul... More

It was so good, we have re-booked it. The staff made us so welcome. Very clean and the breakfast is excellent. Ideal for a special occasion. Fantastic location, stunning views great for walkers. Once you have stayed there, you will remember your stay for a long time and want to go back.

I've booked this unique B&B for my husbands 40th birthday as a surprise getaway! I was very particular about staying in the Keeper's Loft as it's the only room in the round building of the lighthouse. When I called I received lots of information about the room - height and space restriction, to ensure my expectations of the room were... More
