A lovely house in a truly beautiful place. The trains can be ignored (or you can "helpfully" watch while an engineer walks the length of his very long freight train to find a problem!), and the beach is lovely as are the views. Both the ferry and the ferryside fish and chips were closed and likely to remain that way for the rest of 2021 which is a Read moreshame and leaves limited food options in Ferryside. Hide

The cottage is in a great position overlooking the beach and the ever changing view from the balcony is lovely. It is a good base for a relaxing holiday, there is also plenty to explore in the area. The trains did not bother us at all.
