The open plan living and dining room features many original features including high vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and a fireplace with wood burning stove. A wide brick arch leads through to the kitchen, again open plan with a breakfast bar and cosy corner seating with coffee table. A large hallway is perfect for muddy wellies, toys, buckets and spades. The downstairs features underfloor heating throughout. There is also a downstairs double bedroom and bathroom with hose shower. The upstairs has lovely sea views and features three bedrooms, one king size with built in wardrobes, one with twin beds and a second double. There is also a large walk in shower in the upstairs toilet and shower room. Follow the short path down the cliff to Monks Bay, a beautiful sheltered sandy beach, safe for bathing. The offshore breakwater to the west is the perfect place to cast a fishing line out to sea. At low tide hundreds of rock-pools are exposed, home to many small fish, prawns and crabs. More
