Additional amenities & feature info
The cottage has retained many original features like the huge wooden beam and the oak flooring. It's located down a tiny fisherman's alley leading from the High Street to the estuary so you will have a high degree of privacy just to enjoy the view across sailing boats and listen to the birds wheeling above the estuary.

Parking is limited in the village so you will need to park in the main village car park - £18 for a week. 300 yards away. You can load and unload at the top of the alley so save your legs!
