With all the mod-cons at hand including a large fridge/freezer and much welcomed wine cooler, your every need has been catered for.
Lighting the barbecue and dining in the enclosed sunny garden of this charming semi-detached holiday house is a lovely way to spend an afternoon and evening.
This lovely property is not only perfect in the summer for a "buckets and spades" holiday, it's also a rather special destination in the cooler months for families and couples alike.

The Beacon is a fantastic all year round retreat and whatever you seek from your holiday, a truly wonderful holiday destination and a warm welcome awaits you at The Beacon.
