1 Island Square is a Grade II listed house situated in conservation area, minutes away from the busy harbour and beautiful sandy beaches.
The deeds show that the house existed in the 1850s and since then generations of the same family from the fishing community have always lived there.
It was built on three levels. The cellar, with a stable door out a small courtyard, was originally used for mending nets and storage. There is a boat ring under the floor used for pulling boats up the hill from the harbour to overwinter them. Also discovered in the floor was a very large deep box, possibly used for storing crab bait. From the thirties, this room was used as a kitchen with table and chairs for family meals and it remains today a large live-in kitchen.
The ground floor consists of two reception rooms. There is spacious living room with the family harmonium or organ which originated in Philadelphia at the turn of the twentieth century and which in the last century was played by most of the family for hymn singing and family gatherings and a smaller room with desk for those who need to do some work whilst on holiday.
The three bedrooms on the first floor originally had jug and bowls in the room for washing but we are pleased to say there is now also a modern bathroom.
This has been a house of happy families, friends and fun against the dramatic background of the fishing industry.
We hope you enjoy it.

Instant bookingInstant booking rentals can be booked directly within a few minutes, much like you book a hotel room on the internet. Only our highest quality rentals are chosen to be featured in our instant booking selection.
On requestTo book "on request" rentals, you need to send a request to confirm availability with the owner before booking. You will receive the owner's answer to your request directly by email. We advise sending requests to 3 or 4 "on request" rentals that interest you most. As soon as you receive a positive answer, you should book immediately; waiting for other replies increases the chances that available rentals will be booked by someone else.
Taxes and FeesHouseTrip is an online platform for holiday apartments. We do not own or manage the apartments listed on our site. We connect you with owners and managers of holiday apartments around the world, providing you with a safe and easy-to-use platform to book and pay for your stay. HouseTrip enables you to pay for your bookings online using a debit or credit card. This payment is then held securely by an independent third party until 2 days after you have arrived at the property, when it is transferred to the owner. By handling this process, certain taxes and fees are incurred, which are included in this section.
Additional FeesSometimes hosts ask for additional fees (refundable security deposits, cleaning charges, etc.) that cannot be paid through HouseTrip. You will need to pay these fees directly to the host when you arrive at the apartment.
