Apartment Two (Sleeps 4)

A 2-bedroom maisonette boasting wonderful sea views. On the first floor is the living area, adjacent to this is a separate kitchen with a dining table for 4. On the second floor there is a contemporary wet room, although full of character, this apartment has very low ceiling beams in the bathroom so you will have to mind your head! There are 2 bedrooms, 1 with a king bed and the other with twin beds. Please be aware there are stairs within the apartment which are narrow and steep.


Our dog friendly rooms

We love dogs here at the Lifeboat and we wouldn't want them to miss out on a little holiday too! We’re the ideal hound hideaway for dogs due to our fantastic location! There are some idyllic walks in our local area, we are minutes away from the South West Coast path and there are plenty of dog friendly beaches in the area. We are sure that will keep you happy and your four legged friends tail wagging for joy!
