Lighthouse cottages

We say
Britain's coastline is dotted with lighthouses. Whilst technology may have rendered many of them obsolete, you can stay in the former lighthouse keepers' cottages for a coastal break with a real sense of history plus a guarantee of great sea views and bracing walks. From North Yorkshire to the Isle of Wight, there's a superb choice of locations.

Rural Retreats says

For those looking for something a little different, these former lighthouse keepers’ cottages are the perfect coastal getaway. We have teamed up with Trinity House to offer fantastic lighthouse stays along the coasts of England and Wales.

  • Remote locations
  • Spectacular views
  • Coastal walks

The properties have each been carefully adapted and furnished to offer comfortable accommodation in a spectacular setting. With one, two or three bedrooms, these former lighthouses can accommodate couples, families or groups of friends seeking a coastal break in an historic property – with great views, open spaces, ocean vistas and miles of coastal walks guaranteed.

Locations include Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Kent, the Isle of Wight, Wales and North Yorkshire.

Trinity House was originally granted a charter by Henry VIII in 1514 and is now a charitable organisation; amongst other responsibilities, it is the General Lighthouse Authority for England, Wales, the Channel Islands and Gibraltar.
