Set over three floors, it has a sitting room with cosy open fire and a breakfast kitchen. On the first floor, there is a bedroom and a bathroom, plus a large second bedroom on the top floor.
The cottage has retained much of its charm and character and boasts exposed stone walls, beamed ceilings and two porthole windows, which enjoy views over the roof tops of Gun Gutter to the sea.
