Chalet | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
CAPE COD CHALET is a newly renovated wooden beach chalet situated on the 1940’s beach site known as the Humberston Fitties, meaning salt Marsh land.

Fabrics by Ralph Lauren and Cath Kidston, mixed with pretty painted furniture that has been lovingly restored back to life.
