Start Point Lighthouse

So last weekend, we took a little trip away in the caravan for a long weekend in Devon! We’ve never actually visited Devon before, only driven through it to get to Cornwall, so I thought it would be fun to explore it a little! As you probably know by now, I absolutely love exploring lighthouses, so whenever I plan a trip somewhere, I always find the closest lighthouse to explore! I came across Start Point Lighthouse and decided that we needed to visit!

Well, I’m not going to lie – I absolutely hate single lane country roads (which we discovered Devon is pretty much full of), and our satnav decided the best way to get there was to travel 15 miles on single lane country roads, up hills on bends. Let’s just say that by the time we actually got there I ended up with such a headache from the stress and feeling sick – and I wasn’t the one driving! Shane loves that kind of thing though, so lucky for him he didn’t mind it!

We didn’t know that you have to pay for parking, though from what I can remember it was only 3 or 4 pounds. The lighthouse is a little walk downhill from the car park but there’s such stunning views over the coastline. I didn’t actually realise that the view that you can see is 15 miles of devon coastline from start point, all the way round through blackpool sands beach (which we headed to after) all the way round to dartmouth at the other end!

There’s also guided tours of the lighthouse throughout the year at an extra charge, but check the dates on their website first, as when we visited it wasn’t open, which is a shame but not the end of the world.

      Lighthouses are so fun, especially the ones you get to climb! Scary but fun!

    It’s a stunning place! I know that type of narrow road which can be really frustrating but it’s part of the beauty of the place. If it was easy to get there it’d be packed with tourists.

      I never thought of it that way! It definitely wasn’t good for my anxiety, but I’m sure if it was easy to get to there would have been so many more people around!

    Those are some beautiful pictures. And, i’m sure it was worth the one lane drive.

      Haha! Yea, I guess once I’d calmed down a bit it wasn’t too bad! The views were stunning – the photos just don’t do it justice!

    Ohh it looks gorgeous – such lovely pictures too! We are finally going down to Devon and Cornwall in September and I’m very excited, I think it’s finally time I explore that bit of the country!

      Ooh! I’m excited for you! Cornwall is my favourite – the beaches are just amazing (and please visit the Eden Project – it’s like my favourite place in the whole of the UK haha)! Enjoy!
