Mr Tansley

Beautiful cottage in an excellent location! Within 5 minute walk of everything we needed and out son got excited every morning when he looked out of the bedroom window and could see the boats in the harbour. Really quiet location but still 30 second walk down to seafront. Aspects service excellent as always.

Held on the anniversary of the consecration of the Parish Church of St Eia in 1434 AD, Feast Day offers visitors to witness - and even join in with - some centuries-old traditions. A morning precesison led by the Mayor to bless the Well of St Eia. Following this, the Mayor will 'Hurls the Silver Ball' into a crowd of children who assemble on the beach below. The one who returns the ball to the Guildhall steps by midday receives a silver coin. In the afternoon the Mayor then throw pennies from the balcony of the Guildhall for children to collect.
