This is a beautiful location with fantastic views. There are cottages to rent through the National Park. We hiked to the Lighthouse which was hard work for 60+ year olds. The cottage was wonderful and extremely comfortable. It was well equipped.

You need a high level of walking fitness to make it to the lighthouse but it's well worth it. Great hosts for our overnight stay in the #4 cottage. We were toasty warm and the bed was excellent. We had a tour of the lighthouse...More

Just love this location, beautiful buildings & stunning scenery. If you visit you should stay a night or two to soak it all up. Hot showers, kitchen, bathrooms and Lounge areas, all with to die for views.

Oh and it will take about 5 to 6 hours to walk to the lighthouse at a steady pace, there are two camping areas on the way with toilets.
