A wonderfully unspoilt place for a bucket-and-spade holiday, and terrific value too. A few steps lead down to a cheerful apartment on the ground floor of a Victorian seafront home with its own private entrance. The friendly owners and family are on hand should you need anything.
It’s all on one level so really easy for families with little ones, and you’ll find absolutely everything you might need, from cots and highchairs to changing mats and plastic plates. You’re across the road from the beach so pack up all your stuff and spend the day having watery fun or walk 10 minutes to the high street (pubs, shops) and the pier where you’ll find gourmet food.
A small courtyard back garden is yours (perfect for a barbecue on sunny evenings) and there’s a useful covered area by the front door for stowing wetsuits, bodyboards and sandy gear. On rainy days you shouldn’t feel too much on top of each other – there’s space to spread out and plenty of books, toys and games for children. There are also castles to visit and boat trips to join.
