Presented as a holiday home for the first time in 2019, we have sympathetically modernised and updated Tradewind to provide a stylish and comfortable place to stay.

Bedside lamps, mirrors and hair dryers are in each bedroom, as is a clock radio. The beds are all metal frame beds with good quality mattresses, the double room has a king size (5ft) bed and the other beds are all standard single beds. Additional blankets and pillows are available on request from the owners. A cot and highchair can be provided if requested in advance, if the cot is requested 1 single bed will be removed and it will be agreed with the guests which bed the cot will replace..
