The downstairs of the cottage also features a large double bedroom with patio doors leading out onto the decking, a bathroom complete with shower and heated towel rack, a utility room and a small porch area at the backdoor, perfect for the kids to leave their surfboards or muddy wellies after a day of adventure.
