Fodor's Review

Perched on the cliff top overlooking The Steeples rocks offshore, this B&B, self-contained cottage and studio is great value. Hosts Pauline and Bruce have a strong local knowledge and give you the opportunity to be as pampered or as independent as you want. The fully equipped cottage has a separate entrance and its own sea view. It works for a couple or, with a couple of beds added, can do for a family as well. Pauline has a lovely garden to wander or sit at the table on the cliff top and enjoy a wine while watching the sunset. There's an extra self-contained studio behind the cottage and B&B rooms in the main house. Lighthouse Road is tricky to find so get instructions first.
