Tara Lodge has been beautifully furnished and decorated with high quality items, and is simply superb for any party looking for a rural and seaside getaway.

The beautiful modern fixtures and furnishings have been combined with traditional pieces to create a truly luxurious holiday lodge. There is solid wooden flooring and a reclaimed brick inglenook fireplace housing a cosy wood burner in the living room, while the high spec kitchen offers solid oak work surfaces, enhanced by an antique dresser with solid oak worktop. For those coffee connoisseurs there is a DeLonghi Espresso Coffee Machine. 

There are 2 bedrooms on the ground floor one with en suite and a large bathroom with separate shower. Upstairs there are 2 further bedrooms and a beautiful shower room. The upstairs double bedroom also has its own lounge area for relaxing and chilling out.

The outside area is perfect for alfresco dining, and the sound of ocean waves will relax you as you allow it to sooth your senses.
