With young children in mind, there is a stair gate, and the garden immediately outside the house is cordoned off with a fence and gate.

The house has a small playroom to one side of the kitchen, conveniently placed to keep an eye on your children while you relax in the kitchen or sitting room to the other side.

The beaches closeby are perfect bucket and spade venues, always uncrowded, at low tide the sea goes out for miles, and at high tide it is shallow for a considerable distance. The seaside villages are all very child friendly, especially the cafes and restaurants. The sea is surprisingly warm for swimming.

There is an excellent riding school nearby that runs children's classes on a regular basis.

There is also a good sailing school in Coutainville, that again runs courses for beginners as well as more experienced sailors, as well as sand yachting and standup paddleboarding.
