The coastal path is just below the property and it is a pleasant 15-minute walk to Steephill Cove with its attractive bay and fish restaurants.

Please be aware that children need to be closely supervised in the property as the large picture windows in the sitting room and master bedroom are low level and can be opened right back from a side hinge. When young children are in the property it is important that the windows are only opened by a secondary mechanism which means the windows lean out from a bottom hinge to provide fresh air. There are also safety locks on the windows.
