Set within a row of quaint fishermen’s cottages, your Grade II listed coastal cottage has a light and airy feel, decorated in cool tones with homely touches and bright soft furnishings. Step through the low door frame and into the charming lounge/diner with low beams, where you can sink into the comfortable sofa and relax in front of your favourite TV programme while your hound snoozes at your feet. Cook up a storm in the well-appointed kitchen where you will find everything you need for a home from home stay. Heading upstairs you will find the two restful bedrooms, a double and a single, set into the eaves with exposed ceiling beams and reduced head height. The bathroom with small bath is also on this floor. Step through the stable door from the kitchen to your unenclosed courtyard garden, perfect for enjoying an evening glass of wine.
