There's space to dine inside or outside plus a garden beach hut. There's a downstairs bathroom with bath and overhead shower.
On your way upstairs, take a moment to look up and spot the blue and cloudy sky, before entering into the two bedrooms.
There's a glamorous mermaid inspired bedroom 1 with double bed, ready to offer you a cosy night sleep. Bedroom 2 is full of quirky delights that will surprise you and make you smile - there's a single cabin bed with a pull out single bed underneath, suitable for two children or two adults. Please note, the cottage is compact and bijou so those tall or larger people may find the smaller bedroom a tight squeeze if two are using the room.
