The Cottage

This little chocolate box cottage has cosy interiors, low ceilings and a very traditional feel.

The vast garden, hidden from the road, is sheltered with greenery and has views across the cricket pitch.

The Location

The stretch of road running through Dolphin Town winds a picturesque course passing a handful of cottages, the church, and a tree-lined strait towards the beach. Follow this road for coastal adventures or cocktails on the Ruin terrace - whichever takes your fancy.

Or head in the opposite direction and you’ll come across the New Inn pub, perhaps getting stuck in the beer garden for an hour or two.
