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

Evening drinks at 5pm is a definite must, lovely to meet the other guests in such a relaxed atmosphere. We stayed in the Keepers Loft which is an incredible room, quirky and with... More

We have just returned from a two night stay to celebrate my partner's birthday. He has always wanted to stay in a lighthouse, and Belle Tout combines charm and uniqueness with real luxury. We stayed in Shiraz - great views and very comfortable. Little touches like a birthday card made our stay very special, and the breakfasts were delicious -... More

Wonderful location and brilliant hospitality, what more could you ask for? Oh yes how about brilliant walks, a beautiful Thai eatery, a lovely little village pub. All that and we stayed in the Keepers Loft (not for the faint hearted), but all jolly good fun none the less. Thanks to Ian & Charlie for making our stay memorable and looking... More

I could rave and rave and rave about Belle Tout. Every aspect, (the rooms, the breakfasts, the hospitality, the setting, the staff, the attention to detail) was simply wonderful. The only way you could ever understand how wonderful a stay at Belle Tout could be is to try it yourself., so if you get the chance en do! Every room... More

Well, what can I say that has not been said already? Not a lot but I feel I must. Brilliant location; isolated and right on the cliff top with gorgeous views in every direction. Fabulous features, fittings and fixtures. Everything seemed just right. Themed rooms, all with taste. Ours was the smallest but the best (in our opinion). The Keepers... More
