Holiday Rental House
Wheems Cottage is a tiny renovated traditional cottage, overlooking bays and cliffs 5 minutes walk away. 2 miles from village, ferry and bus. Solar and ground source heating. Situated on small organic vegetable farm this property is connected to the main farmhouse, with sliding door onto its own front door onto a sea view patio and terrace. The bathroom and the bedroom are tiny so please don't expect them to be big, there is only space at one side of the bed and the bathroom has a bath and a shower but there is just enough room to turn around in! It is a cosy place to stay for 2 - 3 people. The 3rd person will need to sleep on a sofa bed in the living room but we don't charge extra for extra guests. This cosy little cottage is heated and lit by geothermal and solar energy.

The location for this place is amazing. The property was bigger than I thought. It wasn’t too small. It was warm and cosy. The view from the window was spectacular. It was peaceful mostly. We were a little put off on arrival with the amount...More

We stayed at Wheems Cottage for six nights for our honeymoon, and we absolutely loved the place. It was very homely, more like house-sitting for your artist friend than staying in rental accommodation. Although some rooms are small, it is perfectly comfortable for two people....More
