Come relax and enjoy peace and tranquility in this 2-bedroom, self-catering cottage which sleeps 4.  The pristine beach is just steps away, across a greenbelt/conservation area (where you may see buck, tortoise, mongoose).  Dolphins, whales and the odd seal or otter may also be spotted in the beautiful waters.
