Coastguards has a rustic appearance, from the whitewashed walls to the low-ceilinged, open-plan kitchen, living and dining space right at the heart of the house. Exposed beams in the two upstairs bedrooms further enhance this, as does the long, sprawling back garden finished off with a stile into the neighbouring field.
A separate annexe in the garden provides sanctuary for guests needing a little more privacy from the group.

Just a few metres from the front gate is a rugged, rocky path to the north end of the island, which is covered in springy purple heather and feels a whole world away. Coastguards just a short sprint from New Grimsby quay should you find yourself running late for the boat!
