Built on the site of a former World War One flying boat station, this contemporary New England style beachfront cottage sleeps up to six people across three generous bedrooms.

Our Favourite Thing

On wilder days, take in the view out to Shipman Head at the end of Bryher, and watch the waves crashing against the headland.
