This is a beautiful home. Do not let the fact that it is not in the middle of town discourage your choosing it. The house is an easy walk downhill into town (less than half a mile) and only a £3-4 cab ride back. There are a total of four toilets, two bathtubs, and a stand-alone shower room. Four bedrooms can easily handle 8 adults. This is the best equipped kitchen I’ve ever had in a holiday let. The photos do not convey the grandeur and space of this home. The deciding point for us was the Range Rover sized parking, which seems to be non existent “in” town. Fittings are modern, and the heating works well despite this unusually cold weather. We absolutely love this place.

Such beautiful views of the bay, dog friendly, easy access to town and beach, parking! What more do you need.. a wrench to come home.

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.
