A traditional cottage at the end of a quiet, pedestrian-only lane, just up from the main shopping street. Relax on the sunny south-facing patio or enjoy the golden beaches all within a few minutes’ walk of the front door. With a stable door, 2 wood burners, beamed ceilings and wooden floorboards, the cottage retains much of its original character. Note: currently being redecorated throughout! New photos will be uploaded when ready!
