Welcoming family home.

Nice house and all that you need for a nice family break.

Kept my Yorkshire busy up and down the stairs

We had no problems with parking outside the house x 2 vehicles

Beach is a short walk away. Places to eat in the area The Blue Plate and worth a trip to Seaton to the Wave Bar.

Only negative would be the patio area needs some attention I.e weeding etc we also couldn't use barbecue as it hadn't been cleaned.
