The Cottage

Grand and spacious, Raven boasts an idyllic location at Old Grimsby. Considered interiors, a peppering of antique furnishings, and absorbing original artwork all add to its character. Light, roomy bedrooms, a vast oak-floored lounge and a modern kitchen combine to create a stylish holiday spot.

Gardens encircle the house – decking and patio space are plentiful, and the bordering plant life lends privacy. A set of wooden steps leads directly from the master bedroom into the garden, for those days when you need to capture the first glimpses of morning sun.

The Location

Wood fired pizza and lavish sharing platters will be on the menu with the Ruin Beach Café so close by. On hot days, the lapping ripples of Raven's Porth will tempt you in for a paddle.

Head a little further along the coast to Blockhouse Castle – stunning anytime but especially impressive at sunrise.
