The feel is light, bright and homely all at once. This four-storey semi-detached cottage sits high up on one of the higgledy-piggledy roads of the old village and has secret steps down to the sea for your early morning dip. You can sit outdoors all day in good weather, sunbathing and chatting with locals at the front, or watching the mesmerising zig-zag of coloured boats in the sparkling sea from the deck – binoculars await for bird spotting or closer investigation.
If you’re stuck indoors you’ll still feel happy, with plenty of seating, a merry wood-burner, lots of books and those views, moody and dramatic in bad weather. The well thought out kitchen is easy for cooks with space for joiners-in, and you eat at a long table or out on the deck with a barbecue and spectacular sunsets over the water.
Bedrooms are peaceful and pretty, one at the top with a day bed in the deep window sill. You’ll nod off listening to gulls and waves.
