About the home
The most prominent advantage of Venus cottage is its marvelous sea views via a balcony and full-length French doors, from the open plan living/kitchen/dining area. The balcony overlooks the pub garden - great on a summers evening for watching the world go by and the sun setting over the sea. The original beams add a touch of heritage to the cottage whilst providing all the additions to make a relaxing stay. The stairs lead to the bedrooms and bathroom. Through the double bedroom a patio door leads to the sheltered courtyard garden with a slate terrace, ideal for sheltered sunbathing and relaxing. Both bedrooms have patio doors leading out to part of the pub's beer garden. Parking is conveniently available in a private car park nearby. Childrens sand-pit in courtyard garden, surf boards, fishing nets & croquet set.
