The Cottage

Maiden Bower offers plenty of space - ideal for families or larger social groups.

Renovated and redecorated throughout winter 2022/3, the cottage interior now befits its beautiful oceanfront location.

The cottage has four bedrooms, including a bunk room, and its open-plan living space is sociable and welcoming.

Outside, the garden incorporates a large lawn and patio space which circles around the property to take advantage of the sea views. Open the garden gate and within a few steps you can be meandering the soft white sands of Farm Beach below.

Our Favourite Thing

Heading out onto the garden after dark to marvel at starry skies and the flashing light of Bishop Rock Lighthouse.
