In East Sussex, on the Heritage Coast, you’ll find the Belle Tout Lighthouse. It’s a striking sight on Beachy Head, and has been since it was first built in 1832. Not only is it a famous feature of the Sussex coast, but it has a rich and colourful history to complement its picturesque charm. Due to fogs and fear of erosion, Belle Tout Lighthouse was decommissioned as a lighthouse in the early 20th century.

It then became a tea room, later suffered damage during the war, following which it was owned by the BBC as a film set, and was eventually moved back from the cliff edge due to erosion. In 2008, David and Barbara Shaw purchased Belle Tout Lighthouse and, after a two-year renovation, opened the lighthouse’s doors to bed and breakfast customers.

It is a unique, stylish and intractably beautiful bed and breakfast, and has earned significant praise, not least in the The Good Hotel Guide 2015 with an Editor’s Choice entry. It boasts an unequalled 360 degree view which includes the English Channel, the magnificent East Sussex countryside and the famous Seven Sisters. That’s only the beginning.

Stay in a themed room. Each room is tastefully designed to appeal to discerning guests. Each of the rooms has its own quirks, like the Keeper’s Loft, where you, as the old lighthouse keeper would have done, can sleep on a mezzanine floor after you’ve climbed the ladder. He, however would not have slept on pristine linen, nor appreciated the carefully treated original brick of the walls. From contemporary to classic, there is a room to suit your taste. All rooms have en-suite facilities. Each of the rooms has either double or king-size bed. If required, the New England room’s king-size bed can be adapted to twin beds.

Being at Birling Gap and Beachy Head, you’ll have many walks and tours. Take a picnic to the beach below. You’ll even find a National Trust Café on the cliff top. Head to The Tiger Inn for great gastropub fare and fine ales.
