To top it off downstairs there is an impressive bathroom with a spacious walk-in shower and sunken bath for ultimate relaxation; the bath even features a jacuzzi setting to be able to spoil yourself even more.
For further accommodation, inside the same building through a door within the main entrance area you can head down the sets of stairs into the annexe which provides a great self-contained area of its own and offers a mezzanine double bedroom and bathroom featuring a bath and shower overhead. Guests here can separate themselves when they wish and enjoy their own open-plan living space with a kitchen, dining area and sitting area with a TV; perfect for couples or grandparents searching for a retreat!

After checking the surf from the house in the morning, keen early birds can grab their surfboard and head straight to the beach to catch the best waves in the area, safe in the knowledge you can return to wash off sand in the heated external shower afterwards!
