If you are searching for your dream lighthouse holiday, then look no further! You can find lighthouse holiday accommodation ranging from hostels to self-catering apartments, guest houses to hotels.
Every property is unique, and it’s not just lighthouses you can stay in. You can also find lightvessels, fog signal stations, former shore stations for the families, lighthouse service vessels and even residences associated with former lighthouse engineers.
What a splendid little tome, Joy has done most of the leg work when one gets the urge to go and stay in a lighthouse.
This is not bedtime reading – more of a directory to browse – but what sweet dreams – when pursuing the assortment of lighthouses and related properties – whilst listening to their names being recited on the shipping forecast.
If you dream of staying in a lighthouse or on some rugged headland – then this book will help make those dreams come true.
Not only are UK lighthouses and keepers cottages featured – but there is also a worldwide section.
The most useful aspect of the book is the comprehensive contact details – giving direct access to the owners or agents for each property along with a picture for most of the UK ones.
Dreaming of escaping? Then this is a book worth buying.
