This was a real highlight of our trip. Ray had to leave early to meet his son (at school), but Fiona was a great hostess. She's very proud (and rightfully so) of the history of the building, and took the time to show us some fantastic old press clippings and even more fantastic tour of the lighthouse - inside and out. And she pointed out some playful porpoises in the water below. She also prepared a great breakfast. We normally eat just a small breakfast, but Fiona made whatever we liked and we really "stuffed" ourselves.
We stayed in the lamp room, and it was a beautiful suite. Warm and cosy (in spite of cool December winds), and we didn't even use the extra electric heaters provided. An extra plus is that's it's on the "ground floor" - so no carrying luggage up stairs.
When we were ready to check out, we didn't realize that they only accept checks and cash (no cards). Since we don't have a checking account in pounds sterling, we thought we'd have to run into town to a cash machine. Fiona said not to worry about it, and to just send her the remainder when we got home. A very trusting individual! And we really appreciated it, since we had to drive to Heathrow to leave the same day.
If I could recommend one thing, I'd say that the web site should remind everyone to bring cash. All in all, a great experience and one I'd recommend to anyone.
