This totally renovated, cosy 2 bedroom fisherman's cottage is a stone's throw from a small, secluded sandy beach, a short walk from a larger sandy beach and within easy walking distance of the harbour. The dolphins are frequent visitors to this area of coastline and are regularly seen during the summer months – keep an eye out at all times!
The village has an excellent pub, The Admirals, as well as a chemist, local store, post office and hairdressers.

The cottage makes an excellent base for exploring the area - there is plenty to do from golf, castles, whisky distilleries, wildlife watching, or just simply building sandcastles!

Wonderfully comfy, snug little cottage, in spitting distance of the sea and two (smallish but nice) beaches. Very quiet street, you only hear the seagulls. Cosy indoors, great outdoor space, two terraces with a view of the sea. The owners have great taste and have obviously thought of everything - and they are most helpful should you have questions, problems... more
