Warden at Bull Point Lighthouse

Nr. Woolacombe,

Devon, South West England

We are happy to offer Warden at Bull Point Lighthouse, North Devon, in collaboration with Trinity House.

Bull Point Lighthouse has been directing ships to safely cross this striking promontory since it was first built in 1879. With the assistance of the lighthouse keepers who resided here, 93 incident-free years elapsed before the Principle Keeper detected ground movement in 1972, which led to a partial collapse of the engine and fog station and the fall of 15 metres of cliff face into the sea.

Much of the old equipment was used in the construction of the replacement lighthouse, which is still visible. However, it is now automated and managed remotely from Trinity House’s Planning Centre in Harwich, Essex. Unfortunately for the lighthouse keepers, but fortunately for the rest of us, all four of the cottages have been remodelled with opulent mattresses, linen, and towels, well-appointed kitchens, and cosy sitting areas—all fittings for the 21st-century traveller. Even WiFi has lately made it to the site, despite its isolated location. Naturally, it’s not always as dependable as it is, especially when a storm is approaching!
