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.

walked a couple of miles in the pouring rain to the lighthouse, looking forward to finding somewher sheltered to eat our packed lunch.
We hadn't intended to go in but the lonely guide enticed us with the offer of a cup of tea and a dry room. He told us how lucky we were because very unusually the lighthouse was operating during daylight owing to the appaling conditions.
It was a fantstic visit, very interesting and quite exciting. We left in the rain happy to go on our way. The charming guide made up for our horrid experience at Bay view Bistro in Bigbury (see review) at the start of the week.
Start point lighthouse is worth visiting in any weather.

We had a super tour guide who showed us around the light house, which is not always open. The guide was very informed and made the visit very interesting. We loved climbing the circular staircase to see the little kitchen and the amazing light at the top. We all learnt a lot about lighthouses and are keen to visit others. We also had a nice walk along the hill paths, both there and back and enjoyed spotting the different types of birds.
