  • Smaller NT setting, nice indoor and outdoor area for children. Car park charges apply for non members. Steps up the lighthouse not ideal for toddlers, but lovely setting to visit in nice weather.
  • Great place for a lovely coastal walk. Plenty of parking and room for the kids to play. The guides for the lighthouse certainly know their stuff, making the journey to the top worthwhile. The tearoom is well kept with the added interest of the swallow chicks on TV, would also recommend the scones 👌👌.
  • Fascinating historical lighthouse. It is possible to climb to the top. The view is impressive. The cafe serves excellent coffee. There is usually some GF cakes - important since my wife is coeliac. There are regular craft fairs here also. Plenty of seating available with views of the coast.
  • Good trip. Weather great so good views from the top of the lighthouse. Good coffee shop.
  • If it is a nice day I'd recommend not using the main car park and use the other car park. It is about a 10-15 minute walk from there to the lighthouse itself but the view from the cliffside path is worth it.
