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

Having spent 3 fantastic nights at the Belle Tout Lighthouse for my husbands 50th birthday I felt I had to share with the world how amazing it was. From the moment you arrive to the minute you depart Ian, Paul and Louise were just fantastic, nothing was too much trouble. We felt welcome and part of the "family" straight away.... 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

Belle Tout is a truly magical place to stay. My lovely wife booked it as a surprise for my 50th birthday, and I couldn't think of anywhere better to celebrate it, or anyone better to celebrate it with! From the moment of arrival, we felt like we belonged, all due to the friendliness and professionalism of Ian, who met us... More

Hi s01steve, A big thank you for taking the time to post such a wonderful review. We are so glad you had a 50th to remember and now you've hit that milestone you should always accept the offer for someone else to carry the heavy bag if it comes your way.......... You wouldn't want to pull something??? ;-) Only Joking!!!!!... More

We had the most amazing time staying at Belle Tout for my Husbands birthday in February. With 2 young children it was a rare treat and the perfect tonic to our busy lives. We watched the sunset in the lantern room (we could bring our own champagne as its a B&B there isn't a bar)) which was absolutely magical, sat... More

We have just returned from an amazing stay at this bed and breakfast in a lighthouse. Each year I try and find somewhere different to stay and thought we would give this a try and I think it's probably the best B&B we have been to so far. The welcome you receive from Paul & Ian is just spot on,... More

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
