South West Coastal Path

Just back from a super weekend in Devon.  We stayed at Start Point Lighthouse in Landward Cottage, amazing place.  Perched right out on a craggy peak, great views across the bay to Dartmouth.  We stood out one night under the inky sky full of stars with the lighthouse beams shining out to sea rotating around us, a surreal experience.

Amazing place

Start Point Lighthouse

The location is excellent for walking, we walked along part of the South West Coastal Path from Start Point to Beesands, naturally stopping for refreshments at The Cricket Inn, looks humble from outside but lovely inside with good food and friendly staff.  The Coastal path runs along the cliff tops and beach with stunning views down into little untouched coves and across the bay.  Not a long walk but long enough to decide we’d walk the whole route in the future.
