The cottage



Admirals Rest is a contemporary Victorian cottage with many period features including wooden floors, sash windows and original fireplaces. It’s been tastefully decorated to reflect its seaside location and filled with interesting vintage finds. In summary, there is an integrated kitchen, sitting room, dining room, master and twin bedrooms, family sized bathroom and walled private courtyard. In the winter months, the cottage offers a warm and cosy retreat.

The cottage is a calm, welcoming space in which friends and family can relax together. Light floods into the kitchen and dining room and the bedrooms have great views. The master bedroom looks out across the rooftops to St Andrews church and the twin back bedroom across the wisteria fringed walls of the Conservation Area. The kitchen is fitted with a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and microwave. There is free Wi-Fi and 3D tv with freeview. A welcome basket awaits you.


In the dining room there, is a large wooden country-style dining table next to a fireplace with a cast iron range. This table is perfect for enjoying meals or simply use it for board games, card games and fun kids activities. On warm days, relax with the kitchen stable door open to the courtyard…take a fresh cafetiere or pot of tea outside to enjoy in the sunshine. Later in the day, heat up the coals and grill some locally sourced fresh fish and relax to the sounds of the gulls calling overhead. There is rear access to the courtyard to store bikes which is completely enclosed for your privacy. A high chair is available and an upcycled drum table is perfect for young children to eat and colour at.



The master bedroom has a king size bed and now has characterful shutters at the window. The back bedroom can be a twin or a double (king) as you choose. Coastal style throws and cushions cover the beds and there is plenty of space for hanging clothes. All of beds are super comfy with duck down duvets and goose feather and down pillows. Retro style chairs and framed local prints add further character and both bedrooms feature cast iron fireplaces. A travel cot can be provided on request (please bring your own linen for the cot). There are vintage books for the adults and bedtime reads for the kids. Bed linen and towels are provided and are included in the price.


The bathroom has a bath, wall mounted shower, shower over bath, wc and basin.


The sitting room can be used for relaxing whether this is watching the 3D TV (with glasses), making use of the free Wi-Fi service or simply enjoying a vintage or more recent book from our collection. Children can choose a DVD (some 3D) or play with the supplied games and toys.
