Couple of local shops for provisions and two good pubs in easy walking distance. We had 3 meals at the excellent Freemasons Arms (fantastic Sunday lunch)... didn't eat in the Ship Aground but enjoyed a couple of visits there. For the less mobile, walks to pretty local beaches are definitely NOT so easy so perhaps drive (we later learnt one of the steep lanes we struggled up was nicknamed Heartattack Hill!!)
