Lighthouse Keepers’ Cottages, Lynton, Devon (c) 2013 Roger Cornfoot
Wow. What a view. We try to keep our inbuilt bias for lighthouse buildings moderated to a reasonable input, but the precipitous nature of this south coast holiday retreat has a jaw dropping factor just for the location, and setting aside any love of lighthouse buildings.
This National Trust lighthouse building ISN’T for sale, but it IS for rental and holiday enjoyment …
An excellent candidate for try-before-you-buy, to go and spend a few days experiencing? This wonderful example of a lighthouse building sits in one of the most dramatic settings of any we have witnessed. Also it is nice to feature a lighthouse building in the Devonian part of the country.

National Trust Narrative: This unique building offers a simpler style of accommodation that is ideal for groups of walkers, birdwatchers and anyone who loves remoteness and extraordinary scenery. You may get a chance to see dolphins, porpoise and gannets fishing at high tide from the lighthouse. which is still operating, and was automated in 1994, but you may be relieved to hear that the foghorn is no longer in use.
Our guests have spotted Peregrine Falcons in mid flight, buzzards, stonechat and a host of sea birds as well as deer, sheep and ponies on the moor. Woolacombe beach is one of the best in Devon and is ideal for families and surfing. The beautiful village of Porlock with its weir is just a short and delightful car drive away and Exmoor is a delight to explore.
Enjoy a visit to the National Trust’s historic tea-garden and old fishing lodge at Watersmeet, deep in the wooded valley just inland from here. The nearest shops and restaurants are nearby in Lynton and Lynmouth.
