Very comfortable apartment in a great location. Well appointed with fair sized, easily accessible secure parking and excellent views across the estuary and out to sea - always something going on to watch. Handy bakery and small supermarket within easy walking distance. Great walks around the headland and coastal path.

This is a truly unique property with stunning panoramic views across the estuary. At full tide, it's almost as if you are at sea - without the rocking motion. An ideal retreat after Lockdown in London. Unreservedly recommend!
