We have stayed all over the UK and this is our favourite ever. If I could I would buy this property over any other to live out my days. it is simply stunning. We spent hours watching the ever changing view. Ships, boats, boards, birds could be seen and the sunset meant we did not watch many of the TVs. Even bad weather is a delight in this cottage.Read more The only negative is the steps, at the cottage and down to the wonderful beach. However the hight is what gives the view, hope to be back.

A lovely, spacious and well equipped cottage right on the cliff next to a dog friendly beach. The housekeeper was very accommodating and the house had everything we needed.

Our stay at Coastguard Cottage lived up to expectations. All spic and scan on arrival, with just the right amount of festive decs. The views and sounds of Bovisand Bay were pretty cool, despite - or actually because of - the stormy weather, which didn't worry us too much.
