    Thanks to all of our enquirers and bookers - all of the summer weeks for 2014 have been filled.

    Additional amenities & feature info
    Compass Hill House offers accommodation for up to thirteen people.

This ground floor kitchen has a little courtyard that is a real sun-trap on summer afternoons, and which leads by steps up to the main garden behind.

    There are other advantages of having a large house available during your let. Maybe you are tw...

Great space and location! We particularly enjoyed grilling and relaxing in the garden space, reading by the bay window with a view of the harbor, and easy walks to nearby reastaurants and shops. Hope to return soon! more

Management response:

The position is excellent providing stunning views over the harbour and towards the forts and is within a... more
