Unusual Hotels UK lighthouse

Being an island nation with one of the most dangerous coastlines with the world, it's rather unsurprising that there are a myriad of lighthouses scattered along our shores, from Robert Stevenson's elegant yet functional designs to strange and eerie off-shore lighthouses in the English Channel.

What is infinitely more surprising is that many of these lighthouses have now been converted to hotels or cottages for your holidaying enjoyment! In this week's blog post we've highlighted five of our favourite lighthouse stays in Britain, all of which are designed for a holiday to remember.

1. Belle Tout Lighthouse B&B, Eastbourne, East Sussex

Situated in a unique position of the south coast of England, where the South Downs roll into the English Channel, Belle Tout lighthouse was reopened in 2010 after an extensive renovation during which time it was picked up and moved back over 50 feet to avoid it falling into the sea!

According to reviews the breakfasts here are fantastic, and there is also a sitting room at the top of the lighthouse where guests can relax next to a log fire.

If you are looking to stay at Belle Tout, our recommendation is to aim for the Keepers Loft room which is situated on the upper floor of the tower. As the name suggests, this was the original bunk room of the lighthouse keepers and still features the original ladder to the double loft bed.

2. Corsewall Lighthouse Hotel, Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland

Dating back to 1815, this luxury hotel is situated on the northern tip of the RhinnsPeninsula and boasts views out towards the coast of Ireland.Old Lighthouse There is also an award winning restaurant as well as a helipad (we kid you not!) and helicopter transport can be arranged by the hotel. Interestingly, the light on the hotel is still operated by the Northern Lighthouse Board and to this day still shines brightly above the hotel.
