Sightseeing & Activities

Unbelievably romantic at Christmas time - twinkly fairy lights lead all the way down the cobbled path that is lined with sweet tiny cottages, and cats! - at the bottom is the harbour and a pub. Not just for Christmas time, this place will enchant you year round. Warning: steep climb back up the hill, or you can jump on the landrover to bring you back up if that's too much.
