8 Victoria Road

From the outside no. 8 is an unassuming and neat stone cottage. But open the door and you'll see all the way through the house, down the hall, though the light-flooded green oak and glass extension and into the 100ft long back garden.

This is a very special house, retaining the charm and proportions of a 200 year old historic cottage but now sun-bleached and simple - with all the modern comforts of a well equipped seaside retreat. 

The contemporary spacious sitting room at the back opens out onto a paved patio and scented garden beyond (not forgetting the small sauna cabin at the bottom!).  It is no surprise that guests come back year after year to holiday at no. 8, which is also featured in Alastair Sawday's Special Places.
