The spacious sitting room is upstairs. Doors open onto a balcony with seating, while to the front you can enjoy a view across the bay - on a clear day you can see the Black Mountain in the Brecon Beacons. The smart TV has Netflix, DVD player. There is a selection of board games, books and DVDs and an extra table and chairs for games, work and play. Among the books you will find local guides and maps for exploring the area on foot, by cycle and car.
On the ground floor, there are three bedrooms, each with wardrobe and chest of drawers: two doubles (one with ensuite bathroom with bath, WC and separate shower cubicle) and a twin room with table and chairs. The family shower room has a walk-in shower, wash basin and WC.
The kitchen is next to the dining room and is fully equipped, including dish washer. The utility room has a washing machine, tumble dryer, iron and ironing board.
Doors open from the dining room onto the terrace and garden where there are plenty of places to sit. There is also a washing line for those damp swimming things after a day at the beach. There is sole use of a lockable shed for storing cycles, buggies and surfboards with space for hanging wetsuits.
From the private off road parking places, The Little Red House is approached by two short flights of steps up to the front door.
