Living Area

On the ground floor of Sandcastle Cottage you will find the living area: a living room with comfortable furniture, oak tables, TV and DVD player and a selection of books. There is a pebble and driftwood effect gas fire for chilly evenings, making the cottage a cosy place to visit no matter what the weather outside.

The kitchen/dining area has a big pine table to seat all the family and views towards the garden.  The kitchen is modern, with gas hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer and plenty of kitchen equipment to suit enthusiastic home cooks.  You’ll find ample supplies of crockery and cutlery. We like to entertain friends and family while we’re here, so you’ll find more than the average holiday cottage supplies.
