The village also enjoyed a colourful history, and some notable visitors including Catherine of Aragon and Jane Austen The beach is safe for kids to play in the water and the area is heaving with fossils and exciting rock pools.

-Fossil Hunting Walks: are a hugely popular attraction both with locals and visitors alike. Fossil centre wardens give a brief and informative talk before the tour begins, with a fascinating journey that heads out onto the beach for 2 hours.

Another great benefit of the location was the sheer number of great pubs nearby who provided some excellent meals.

The cottage was dog friendly but you would never know. Great facilities and great hosts in Trish & Phil also. You wont be dissapointed!
