|Coast Path Cottage is situated at the entrance to the small (30 vans) Ringstead Caravan Site. It is a comfortable holiday base, large enough to accommodate 8 people and therfore ideal for two familes wishing to share.|
Bordered to the north by National Trust farmland and with direct access to the beach through the caravan site, Coast Path Cottage is ideally placed for a back to nature holiday. And if you are a watersports enthusiast there is also a slipway (and electric winch) for lowering/raising boats.
