12 The Lane has been in the same family ownership for the last 35 years. It has undergone a complete internal refurbishment, including a wood burner, with garden being landscaped (just finishing touches required!) We feel The Lane is arguably the best location on the island, easy walking distance of seafood restaurants, the jetty and beach. The village is a 15 minute walk away. Bring your own bikes as it's a great way to get around the island, or we now supply 5 basic bikes free of charge.

The space
A fantastic open plan living space which opens out onto the garden, perfect for entertaining. The house is south facing with sun almost thoughtout the day. The south side of the house has beautiful views of the old fishermen's cottages down The Lane towards the sea. The master bedroom, with its ensuite shower room, has gorgeous sea glimpses. The main bathroom has a bath with shower over.
