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.

We have just returned from a superb 3 night stay in the New England room at Belle Tout. Everything about this lighthouse is of the highest standard, from being met in the car park and welcomed by Ian to the luxury of the fixtures and fittings throughout we could find nothing negative about the place over our stay.

I took my husband here for his surprise birthday this week and couldn't have made a better choice. We were joined by a couple of friends and all agreed that I will be hard pushed to beat this, next year. Ian the manager is one of the best. And Louise who helps him is also a lovely friendly girl.

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.
