Fantastic coastal walks right from your doorstep makes this an ideal cottage for dog owners or walkers and children will love the beach.

Right from the word go we knew this was going to be a memorable destination. As we drove down the narrow road into Sandend the first thing that met our eyes was the beautiful beach with the sun glinting on the sea. When we unlocked the front door and entered the cosy cottage it felt lovely and warm and welcoming... more
