Burnside is a charming detached holiday cottage, built in the 1850s and tucked away off a quiet country lane.

The cottage opens on to enclosed front and back gardens, where you can bbq lobster and crabs caught by local fishermen; or enjoy a drink while watching dozens of varieties of bird and wildlife.
