The house is superbly located right on the sea front with great views and a spacious sea facing garden. The village amenities and harbour are all a few minutes walk. The house is recently refurbished and is very comfortable for couples and families (with kids).
The Location is amazing with the shore just beyond the garden. The dolphins pass frequently if you keep a look out. The harbour is a stones throw away, as is the local shop, pubs and a super local restaurant 'The Anchor'. The coastal path is a great way to explore the area and crosses in front of the house.
The whole house is yours as well as the converted garage which provides a great comfy spot to watch the waves, read a book or relax and chat, sitting in front of a wood burning stove.
Interaction with guests
I am sorry I will not be available for your stay as I manage the Bothy remotely.
Other things to note
The house refurbishment was designed with my family of 4 in mind. Therefore having 6 adults may feel slightly tight, depending on what you are used too. One may have to be a little careful with the hot water, for example, if all wanting showers at the same time.
Please note, babies are welcome however I have said not suitable because I currently do not provide a baby high chair or stair gates.
Wood burning stoves - No rubbish or plastic to be burnt. Logs only please, no coal or charcoal.
Guests need to thoughtfully dispose of waste using the correct bins -Recycling (blue top bin) and Non recycling/general waste (black top bin), and green food caddy. There is more info on this in the house manual and it is highlighted in the 'house manual' when you book.
Please avoid stiletto heels on the downstairs cork floor- it may puncture it.
Please dry any large spills or a lot of standing water from the kitchen/ bathrooms, splashes are ok but a lot of water causes problems.
Check out - Please leave keys in the key safe and take away all left over food stuffs, Thank you.

Before Kids my husband and I travelled for years in our beloved Landrover, from NE Brazil to the southern tip of Chile, then up the west coat to Alaska.
