Both cottages (blockhouses) are located on a private appr. 8 acre sized wooded languet directly on the Atlantic and have a private (rocky) beach. Both houses have an incredible view on Tor Bay (each their own view). The two houses are located around 400 feet from each other and make a stay ideal for two families (for requests of four guests we generally only prepare one of the houses, however feel free to request for the second, this will not be rent out during your stay). The main cottage has two double-bedrooms with each a private bathroom. There is a spacious living and dining room with an integrated kitchen. The roofed porch can be used for barbecue and dining and has a beautiful view on the ocean south-east. The smaller cottage has a loft with a double-bed and a quite small sleeping “chamber” with two single beds. There is a small bathroom with bathtub and a roofed porch with a view to the ocean south-west.
