It is in a perfect situation just across the road from the beach and swimming, 2 minutes stroll from the village shops and a short stroll along the coast to the waterside restaurants e.g. The Company Shed (renowned as one of the best fresh fish/shellfish places in the UK) and the Oyster Bar and Restaurant.
Also there is a large garden enjoying sunny sitting out area with dining table and chairs for 4. TV with Freeview and Netflix digital channels. Elizabeth said 'We enjoyed a lovely stay at Island Cottage. It was beautifully clean and tidy on our arrival. The cottage is ideally located. Walking distance to the village and just a stones throw from the beach! My children particularly enjoyed the large garden. We will definitely book again.'
