Enjoy a delicious freshly cooked breakfast from local produce and a perfect cup of English tea in the morning.


The gorgeous sunny decked area in the garden is there to enjoy during the summer months. Eat local fresh fish cooked on the BBQ and drink a nice cold glass of wine while you refresh in the salubrious sea air and quaint English garden - alfresco.




Enjoy the light and comfortable sitting area where you can settle down and cosy up in front of the TV or take time out reading some of the books available for you to use. Pretty seaside pictures and quirky little visual extras in the rooms make your break by the sea that little bit more special.




Sleep well in light and airy bedrooms with large comfortable beds. There 3 double size bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other two are equipped with beds that can be king or twin. Pretty pictures hang from the walls for small children to enjoy. Fresh linen and towels are included in the price.

Pop in to the Coast Inn and have a pre dinner beer by the open fire. You can stay and listen to live music here too some nights. Snuggle up back home at the cottage with a hot chocolate, a book and the woodburning stove.
