The road ends here and this gate leads down to the lighthouse. The adjacent buildings are now holiday homes. A wonderful view but very isolated, particularly in icy conditions. The lighthouse is unmanned. It is at a prominent point on the North Devon coast where the general direction of the coastline changes.
