Seafood Restaurant
“For something a bit more special, this place has a wonderful location and delicious seasonal food looking onto Appley beach. If it's warm enough, try asking for a table out on the balcony to make the most of the views. The restaurant is a leisurely (albeit 30 minute) walk along the beach from the cottage. ”
