Also there is sunny patio garden with built in seats, safely enclosed for children and dogs, which creates a home away from home, a world away from city life. The sporty will sail, or trek the coastal path. The walking is a joy and it is an ideal dog friendly cottage.
It’s hard to imagine this sweet seaside cottage according to locals used to be a pub (Blue Anchor) which Nelson frequented and a cannon ball store (a triangular stack of cannon balls is called a Monkey) hence the name Blue Monkey.
