This is a large brick and flint barn. The owner lives in part of the barn.

The balcony has views to the sea in the distance, the church and lighthouse. There are 2 old cottages and a farmhouse in the farmyard and another barn conversion. The farmyard is no longer a working farmyard. There is access to a small, private field for sitting out as well as the balcony. Oil fired central heating is on a time switch and tenants have additional electric heating available at all times (included). Thick brick and flint walls help ensure that the flat is warm in winter and cool in summer. Within walking distance of the village shop, playing field, cliffs, beach, lighthouse and pub (with food).
The beach is only 5 mins walk away along a track and past the coast watch station. A scramble down the cliff to a fairly private part of sandy beach is possible for agile guests. Less agile guests can walk for 10 mins past the pub and across the field to the public beach that is accessible via a substantial metal staircase.
