Inside No. 8 there is a seaside vibe with a happy mix of vintage and contemporary furniture. The house is decorated with maps and filled with wonderful fabrics, stripped wooden floors and wood-burning fires. You won’t want to leave.
Looking out of the front door one way you can see the masts in the harbour and the other way the end of the High Street, the best location for a truly relaxing holiday.
Through the front door you enter into the hallway, off which is the wood-clad kitchen, warmed by an Aga (switched for a modern cooker when too warm in the summer). The kitchen is fully equipped for the most of enthusiastic cooks, with a large table and bench seating for many.
Across the hall is a snug sitting room with a TV/DVD, wood burning stove and rocking chair when you need to escape for some quiet time, with double sofa bed for an extra guest or two.
Under the stairs, with a little step down, is a small toilet/wash basin.
At the back is a sweet single bedroom, white washed with stripped wood furnishings and a view out to the garden.
The main sitting room is down a couple of steps at the end of the hall into a high-ceiling green oak room with full length glass doors which pull back to open the room into the garden. This is a large light filled room with three comfy sofas, TV/DVD, big wood burning stove and lots of books, games and jigsaws, plenty room for everyone.
Outside on the paved patio area there is a table and benches perfect for having long lazy lunches in the sun.
Upstairs there are three gorgeous bedrooms, two doubles and a bunk bedroom, all furnished in the same style with the main bedroom having an en-suite shower room.
The main bathroom is also up here, tiled with sea-green glass tiles and having an over-bath shower with a large drenching rain showerhead.
The house has wifi for those that need to stay in-touch with the outside world, and IPod dock and a football table in a small games room, next to the sauna at the bottom of the garden, oh and a built-in BBQ in the kitchen garden.
For our smallest guests we also have a travel cot with extra mattress, stair gate and high chair.

The garden at No. 8 is always a bit of a surprise, no one would guess from the front that there is a 100ft sunny garden hidden away there. With a large paved dining area, plenty of places to sit wherever the sun is at its best, a swing seat, BBQ, cabin with football table and sauna, and all surrounded by a variety of fragrant plants, you may never leave to even see the beaches!
