The sea has always been likely to inspire dramatic feeling in me. I have drifted off into my own little world wondering what time of year would enthral me most to stay here. I love to think of a blustery day when the sea is at its wildest. I love the idea of snow on the ground, the clear views on a sunny day. As Mr Q said to me, “Wouldn’t it be fabulous to snuggle up and watch the elements in such a quirky location?” Well yes, Mr Q, it really would.
The views look truly fabulous and on their website they have web cams which are updated every minute.
I particularly think that the Keeper’s Loft room (bedroom) is interesting. As a child I loved bunk beds and this really has to be a grown up version of that exciting high rise sleep experience … but it’s for two people. What great fun! Note: bunk beds are notoriously hard to make in the morning so I will be delighted to leave the making of the bed to the staff at the lighthouse.
The lighthouse was owned once by the BBC and was used to film The Life and Loves of a She-Devil. I remember the series and recall being a bit scared whilst watching it. Perhaps as a child I did not take on board that living in a lighthouse was unusual, but as an adult I know now that it’s a rare opportunity we have been given to stay in this amazing venue. I love knowing that the cliffs eroded so badly that the lighthouse has been moved … that’s no mean feat eh? At times like that wouldn’t it be great if there was a real life giant, like Gulliver, who could just pluck the lighthouse up and reposition? I wonder how long it did take to reposition? I wonder when the next repositioning will take place.
Mr Q is passionate about this venue and if I want romance and passion (and what girl doesn’t) I had better get on the phone to book our stay.
