The house is lovely and fitted out to a very high standard. The location is right on the edge of the village and within easy walking to two local pubs and shops and the nearby beaches are very clean and have wonderful sand. A really lovely property I would recommend.

Beautiful rectory, completely and tastefully redecorated throughout, fantastic for dogs. Well-maintained, large mature gardens, a good number of bedroom/bed variables for different family groupings. Beach only 5 minutes drive, lots of local amenities in village within walking distance. Loads of space to spread out if people want to do different thiRead morengs but also cosy communal spaces to get together in (large kitchen with Aga, snug, sitting room, dining room). Highly recommended. Hide
