A row of 4 cottages with number 4 occupied by a caretaker, these cottages are right on the estuary with no other house in sight. They are especially popular with walkers as the South West Coastal footpath is reached via a stile at the end of the drive. These cottages share a communal garden, play area and games room, and are especially popular with extended families and friends, who take all three cottages. Guests can keep canoes/wind surfers and small boats on the beach below the cottages, or on a guest mooring.
3 Coastguards Cottage
This cottage has a single large sitting/dining room, which can accommodate a temporary second dining table, to enable guests who have taken two or all three cottages to invite family and friends to join them for a meal. Better still, push all 3 picnic tables together and have a grand meal you’ll never forget whilst watching the sunset over the sea.

“We have had a lovely time here in the Coastguards cottages. It’s lovely to have a lovely caring neighbour like Brian and his wonderful dogs. It was lovely to have private access to the wonderful stretch of beach with the brilliant rope swing. It was fantastic to wake up very day and look out to the sea. The stars are wonderful, they light the whole sea. I thought our stars at home were bright!!” Debbie B (age 13)
“Once again a most glorious visit. I think it’s fair to say that the longer one stays here, the more does the spirit of the estuary sink into one’s soul, its vastness and also its charm. It’s not been difficult to leave modern life behind but it will be hard to go back….Seeing 5 swans in flight was magnificent ( and noisy). The cloudless starry sky, unfettered by light pollution was spectacular. Our thanks go to all who made it possible for us to have a share of Paradise…” Andy and Sue
“Primary holiday objective? To relive a memorable portion of my childhood and allow my family to share my memories during the mid 1950’s when I lived…in cottage Number 5 , then 3 as originally built. Good to see the whole area remains much as I remember——-a feat of effective countryside management working in harmony with the elements. Most emotional memory? Waking up to the view from the same window as when a 12 year old.” Vernon D
