    Additional amenities & feature info
    Inside, the house is warm and cosy, with sea views from every room. It has a comfortable living/dining room running along the back of the house with dramatic views through two full-length glass doors, opening to Juliet-style balconies.

    The accommodation is flexible. There is a double bedroom with a king-size bed, and a family room, comprising a double bed and 2 bunk-beds. The house can therefore sleep 6, if 4 family-members are sharing the family room.

    Each bedroom has lovely views, up or down the shore. You will hear the sea all the time when you are in the cottage.

    The kitchen is newly-fitted, modern and well equipped with an electric hob and gas oven, a fridge and dishwasher. The house has gas central heating. There’s a new shower room, and towels and bedding are provided.

The weather was very cold, we even had snow, it was great to come back to the warmth and comfort of the cottage. Everything was provided for a great holiday! more
