This fantastic four bedroom period cottage is situated a short distance from where the creek ends, in a unique and totally secluded position right on the water’s edge alongside the estuary near East Portlemouth.

A more heavenly spot would be hard to find.  Waterhead Cottage has recently been totally modernised, extended and re-furnished to a very high standard and provides exceptionally comfortable, home from home accommodation, with the most incredible estuary and countryside views anywhere in the UK.

With a steep, mainly grass, 75 yard long footpath down to the cottage, Waterhead may not be suitable for the elderly or those with a walking disability.
