Welcome to the Belle Tout Lighthouse

The Belle Tout Lighthouse at Beachy Head is a unique place to stay.     

Built in 1832 and decommissioned in 1902, a tea-shop, a home, part-destroyed during the second world war and lovingly rebuilt in the 50's. Owned and filmed by the BBC, moved due to erosion - and now, beautifully restored and renovated.

With 360 degree views of the English Channel, beautiful landscape, countryside and the enigmatic Seven Sisters, Belle Tout is a remarkable place to stay.

With themed rooms such as 'The Captains Cabin', 'Old England' and 'Keepers Loft', the accommodation and facilities will ensure a comfortable and memorable break.

"Stunning views, a wonderful welcome and just the best stay we’ve ever had. Thank you for making the first four days of our marriage so good! Hopefully there are many more visits to come! Thank you."

"Wow! What a fabulous place to stay, colourful history, stunning scenery, wonderful hosts creating a relaxed atmosphere (all good for the soul). We will be back! Thank you for an amazing few days."
