If you are unlucky enough not tohave booked the cottage this year or have friends coming down to visit, you may be interested in the fact that the YHA has just spent £155K refitting out the youth hostel, just up the hill at the back of us.
Never been inside, but its an easy walk to the beach from there (horrible walk back mind you) and they have a new self catering kitchen, toilets and soft furnishing. Sounds really nice to be honest. They have 3500 people nights per year. The hostel can be booked by groups and have sole use of the facilities over the winter prior to the start of the season on the 1st March
