Vine Cottage is located in an enviable front line position overlooking the harbour with excellent sea views of the bay and surrounding National Trust headland at Jacka Point. A key feature is the spacious south facing terrace at the front of the cottage which benefits from these views. The traditional double fronted terraced cottage has three bedrooms and a wealth of charming character features including beamed ceilings, window seats, an inglenook fireplace with clome oven in the dining room, which is fitted with a wood burning stove, and an open fire place in the sitting room.
