Owner description: The striking Start Point Lighthouse is situated on one of the most exposed peninsulas on the English Coast, running sharply almost a mile into the sea on the south side of Start Bay between Kingsbridge and Dartmouth.

Well worth the walk and well worth the entrance fee.

I used to holiday here as a child in the '60s, I don't recall that it was possible to go up the lighthouse then, but it is now...

You can do a circular walk from the National Trust carpark down to the lighthouse and around the cliff path. Seals are often spotted near the low rocky foreshore and in the summer there is a lovely sandy cove with large boulders.
The views across Start bay to the ruined village of Hallsands and to Torcross are stunning.

Wanted to write something but as we didn't get to visit, had to pic 'Average'; We drove to the lighthouse, but the cloud was so low we could hardly see the lighthouse from the car-park, so didn't even get out of the car, as paying for what would have been zero view would have been a waste
