What a gem in the Vale, great parking and the views are unbelievable. Be very very careful with children running about, the cliffs are straight down and no fencing. There is a small tea room and a toilet further down. In winter it's bitter but...More

We were lucky to find the lighthouse open today. Chris, the volunteer who keeps the place going is a mine of information. The views from the top are worth the many stairs!

Popped in today while it was raining and it was worth the visit, never been in a lighthouse before so this ticked a box, the binoculars at the top are great. Not much else to say except read the book and look at the pictures.

Would highly recommend a visit. The tour is great and the views on a sunny day are superb. The kids loved learning about each floor of the lighthouse. If you in the area pop in and give it a whirl.
