This little gem has superb views over the Severn Estuary, there is ample parking (private carpark) and the possibility of renting "keepers" cottages as holiday homes.
My eldest child is currently looking at Lighthouses and navigation, so we have been traveling to various lighthouses that are open to the public, so she can see the differences in architecture and what it was like to be a lighthouse keeper. We had planned our visit for the school holidays to ensure the greatest chance that it would be open to the public. We called the day before, the number on Trinity House's website to check it was open but there was no answer, and no automated message advising of any reason why it would not be.
After a 2 hour drive, we parked up and walked to the lighthouse towering above the coast only to find a note on the door that it was closed due to staff shortages.... (There were 4 other couples with children that we bumped into as we looked around the outbuildings, who has all traveled to visit the lighthouse, so I estimate around £50 in lost revenue for the 45 minutes we were there).
Note, like all Lighthouses, its not suitable for children under the age of 5 or 6
This is a shame
