Saltwater Cottage

Right in the middle of the areas most vibrant village and 10 minutes walk to the beach, this is one cool cottage. Perfect for friends and perfect for families. Saltwater is a location and house that packs some punch.

We love Milford on Sea. The village green is 90 seconds from your door, which means that the butcher, baker, grocer, top coffee shop, quirky independent supermarket and candlestick seller are within a stone’s throw. Even closer is The Wash House, a microbrewery (or some regard) where you can play board games, and order in your food from local amazing foodie places… there are loads, it’s a real destination here. The Thai place is the closest at 20 seconds walk, then a great Italian, then the brewery, then an ace deli, the famous fish+chip shop, several ‘proper job’ restaurants too.

The cottage itself has been recently renovated, beautifully put together for guests, there are two good sized bedrooms for 4 and on the top floor (up steep stairs) another room for 2. The garden is long, well fenced and great for sunbathing.

Kids will love the massive park just behind the house but really the joy here is the miles and miles of beach which is sandy at mid-low tide. The sand bar that is uncovered at very low tide creates a shallow lagoon behind it for warm summer splashing. Perfection.
