Straight onto the beach! A beach-side bungalow converted from an early 1900's southern railway carriage, complete with etched glass and the old slam doors. Often described as quirky it has been extended to provide cozy accommodation, with an easy living, open plan spacious living room which has wall to wall windows overlooking the beach and sea. Has a beach side patio, a private sun bathing patio and parking for 2-3 cars. You can have your feet in the sea within seconds of leaving the patio. Remove yourself from the rush of daily life and enjoy a totally quite location with hardly ever more than a dozen people on the beach, even in high season. Ideal for relaxing 'get away from it all holiday', swimming, fishing, and winter bird watching. You can even try catching local shrimp for your tea...Straight onto the beach!

Ideal for relaxing 'get away from it all holiday', swimming, fishing, and winter bird watching. You can even try catching local shrimp for your tea. The property has three small bedrooms with a 4'6' bed, a 4' bed and a 3' single bed. There is also a fold out double futon bed in the living room. There is gas central heating to radiators and hot water on demand for the kitchen, toilet and shower room. All windows are fully double glazed. The kitchen is well equipped including a double oven and microwave. There is a washer/dryer and freezer in the shed! The living room has a 32' TV with Freeview, TV recorder and DVD player. There are books to read and games to play. There is free to use Wifi and a printer (no guarantee on ink capacity!). You might even find some beach balls, bats and crab lines stored in one of the bedrooms. Outside there is a BBQ, garden seating and two sun loungers. If you are really feeling energetic and don't hold me liable, there are three kayaks you could try paddling. There are wet-suits and buoyancy aids either in the shed or in the third bedroom if you dare; and even a 100m long rope with a beach anchor, so that yo can secure inexperienced kayakers and not loose them over the horizon. Points to be aware of: Because it is partly a raised railway carriage there are two narrow steps leading from the kitchen, shower and toilet area to the living room and bedrooms area (see photo above). These steps may be tricky for the very elderly or physically disabled especially if needing the toilet during the night. Those visiting with dogs have occasionally asked; is the garden secure?; it is as long as you keep the gate shut!More

We stayed at Moonshine for a week and had the most relaxing, enjoyable time. The house is very warm and welcoming and the view is to die for. Walks along the beach with the dog everyday, a pub lunch within walking distance and a supermarket...More
