With Charles Dickens House - a seven-bed sister property located next door - also available, these beautifully furnished properties are ideal for larger parties of 12, and guaranteed to provide the perfect setting for fun and games after an action-packed day exploring the area. 
With a tasteful nautical theme throughout the interior, coastal retreats don’t get much better than a stay at Rose Cottage.

Situated in the hamlet of Bilton, this coastal haven offers you all the privacy that you could want, while still only being a short 15 minute walk to the beach.
