Built in 1862, this is not your typical lighthouse. Departing from the expected circular architecture, the property resembles a medieval castle and is built of limestone and Canadian pitch pine. It operated as a lighthouse until 1985, and now functions as a bed-and-breakfast, with simple, traditionally decorated guest rooms. All three have views over the Irish Sea, but for a spectacular panorama, book The Telegraph Room, which features 280-degree bedroom views of the water, as well as a ladder up to the roof. After a traditional Welsh breakfast in the Victorian dining room, you can head out to explore the surrounding Great Orme Country Park or take an invigorating two-mile walk to the historic seaside resort of Llandudno.
