Follow this road for 3 km (about 2 miles). After a cemetery on your right side there is a small road to the right at a left-hand bend. Follow this road for 5 km (3 miles). At a right-hand bend the private road to Lighthouse Lodge starts to the left. Pass the iron gate (usually open). Follow this private road for a few 100 metres. Just before the lake you reach the cottage (on the left).
