There is a well-equipped kitchen where you can prepare family meals to be enjoyed around the dining table or on the patio during warmer weather.
There are also three comfortable bedrooms, one of which is on the ground floor.
The rear garden is private, peaceful and a perfect place in which to enjoy a morning coffee whilst listening to the gulls passing overhead.
Just a very short walk will take you down to the beach, harbour and array of pretty cottages that run along the seafront.
Here you will find the Oyster Catcher seafood restaurant, which is open from April to October and offers the most wonderful food prepared from fresh local produce.
