Set the table for six people while the appointed chef familiarises themselves with the kitchen's amenities, which include an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and coffee machine.

Before mounting the stairs to freshen up with a hot shower or bubble bath in the bathroom, throw your sandy towels or walking gear in the convenient washing machine.

Oyster Cottage is ideal for families or friends, with three stylish beamed bedrooms; 2 double rooms and with storage and white-washed stone feature walls, and a bunk bed that sleeps two.
