A gated entrance offers access to an off-road gravel parking space before taking a winding path up the gentle slope through the garden towards the property. Ensure that the gates are fully open. If arriving in the dark, the garden light switch is situated on the left hand gate post (this is a dual switch, the other being situated in the Annexe). A torch may be useful as there are no street lights - only stars!
Steps lead up the verandah to the front door of this elevated property. The verandah has wooden railings around and benefits from dining furniture and bird feeders to create a lovely place to sit and enjoy the wildlife. The outdoor seating can be accessed from the front door, or the sliding french doors directly from the lounge area of the property.
Inside the main entrance, you're met with a bright open living space. To your right, a leather three-piece suite (including sofa bed) offers a comfortable place to relax in front of the triple panelled floor length glazed doors which slide open to provide access to the verandah beyond. A flat-screen TV, DVD player and sound system are provided for guests to enjoy.
On the far side of the room, under a window overlooking the estuary is a large dining table which comfortably seats four adults. The full length of the back wall is dedicated to a great selection of books, puzzles, maps and guides which the owners have gathered over the years. The vast collection of well-organised visitor guides would rival anything a tourist information could provide and allows guests to get the most out of their stay.
Towards the back of the property, an open-plan kitchen looks over the rear garden towards the moorlands beyond. Although modest in size it is well equipped with a fan oven and grill, under-counter fridge with freezer compartment, microwave, and all the cooking and dining supplies you would expect. There isn't a washing machine in the property, but the nearby caravan park has an excellent laundry facility and welcomes non-residents.
Left of the front door is a delightful twin bedroom which overlooks the garden. Traditional, elegant decor provides a relaxed and homely feel, while the ornate furniture offers plenty of storage for clothes and belonging. The shower room is accessed from the bedroom and has a full-sized gas powered shower, toilet and washbasin. It is heated by a good-sized radiator which is fuelled from the combination boiler, also housed in this room.
Back outside, a hanging area behind the property offers somewhere to dry clothes and the sheltered open area below the verandah is perfect for parking bikes in bad weather.
