Start Point Lighthouse holiday cottages

Start Point Lighthouse, on a dramatic headland above Start Bay between Dartmouth and Salcombe, has two former lighthouse keepers’ cottages: Landward and Beacon

Two holiday cottages are available, Landward with accommodation for 5 guests and Beacon with accommodation for 6 guests. Start Point lies 4 miles from the main road via narrow country lanes. The final stretch is a half mile private, walled, tarmac drive which runs along the side of the headland. The drive is shared with walkers, forming part of the South West Coast Path.

Guests can use the path to enjoy breathtaking cliff top walks in both directions. Beaches at East Portlemouth, Slapton and Blackpool Sands are within a 20 minute drive.


Start Point is signposted from the village of Stokenham which is located on the A379 from Kingsbridge.
