Top choice apartment in Steephill Cove

This is the sea-view sleep spot of your dreams. A white, two-storey, clapboard lighthouse where the style is pure New England beach chic and the setting is right beside the shore. Lie in bed watching the waves, take a few steps to the beach to swim in the sea, stroll out to dine on your private deck. Heavenly.

The same people run the Boathouse (sleeping six people, per week £900 to £1500) and the romantic, two-person Crow's Nest (£400 to £620) nearby.
