    Originally converted from a traditional grain store, this cute cottage was owned by a local stone mason (hence the name), and in its time has been home to fisher folk, and local residents. Recently it has been lovingly created into a bright and airy 2 bedroom holiday cottage sleeping 4. With all that you'll need to use as a base from which to explore the area, and although the cottage has TV and DVD we bet you spend most of your time watching the to-ings and fro-ings of harbour life. They've even created a great vantage point in the master bedroom with this purpose in mind. This property welcomes non-smokers. Dog Welcome. Wi-fi
