“Beautiful coastline”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

Me, my husband, parents and dog walked the coastline from Hartland Quay to Hartland Point where the lighthouse is. We used to cars dropping one off at the point before starting at the quay. This meant we did not have to do the return journey. One way is around 3-3.5 miles and is up and down valleys and hills so can be quite strenuous at times. Well worth it though for the views which are amazing.

“Dramatic!”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

Spacious car park with friendly attendant at Pay kiosk. Great views especially from the old coastguard house where you could look down to the lighthouse. Dramatic scenery.

“spectacular views but dont use rip off car park!”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Hartland point is well worh a visit for its magnificent views of its coastline and out to lundy. you cannot visit the lighthouse sadly but you can get a good view of it via the coastal footpath and it is pretty amazing! One thing to be aware of is the fact that you will get charged a hefty £2 if you wish to use the car park (which is just rough ground and should be free). Far better to walk out to Hartland point via the coast path from the FREE National Trust car park a mile down the road and the £2 you save will buy you two mugs of coffee at the refreshment hut at Hartland point.

Beware also of the toll road at Hartland quay where another £2 charge exists merely to drive down to the quay. Hartland itself has a free car park and is well worth a visit. Nearby Clovelly is another rip off place for charging as you pay £6 just to enter the village!! - Again however, if you enter via the coastal footpath you can avoid the rip off charge!

“Not a happy visit”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

Recently visited this lighthouse due to a navigation error by the other half - local farmer had constructed a hut and charged £2 to drive over his short piece of land to view the lighthouse. The Coastguard have closed the route because of erosion - the farmer neglected to tell us until we had paid and parked.
Not worth the effort!!!!!!
