Mulberry is part of the holiday community of Towan Valley with its 28 houses and there are always new people to meet here. Located at the top of the development it is next to the field where cows graze and its paved patio adds a great private area for barbecues or children's play.
Come rain or shine, warm or cold, you can spend hours on the beach surfing, rock-pooling, sand-castling, dog-walking, scrambling or generally having fun. When it's wet watch the waves from The Blue Bar! You can eat fresh fish caught locally, and enjoy trying out so many local foodie haunts all within close proximity to the house.
