Cliff House

smart, beachy, family

  • 8 + 2 babies
  • 4 Bedrooms
  • 3 Bathrooms
  • Close to Coast
  • Family Friendly
  • Dog Friendly

This lovely family friendly beach house sits up on the cliffs in the pretty village of Milford on Sea. It is a clever mix of minimalist style, colour pops and pragmatic design for families wanting to enjoy the beach and coast. The kitchen has a wall of glass bi-folds that let the afternoon sun in from the garden. It’s sunbathing heaven and there is a good BBQ and garden furniture.

The house is owned by two food-lovers so there is masses to cook and serve with…and a huge amount of kitchen cooking space.

Colours here are predominantly greys and whites with the odd splash of blue, and pink (the owners’ two young girls normally live here and have left plenty of toys out for visiting kids). The kitchen is open-plan and huge. There is a big kitchen island for informal eating plus a good sized kitchen table for 10 – so it’s perfect for extended families holidaying together.

Milford on Sea, is 1 mile away. But you can walk to the beach from here in 2 mins without going anywhere near the town. The village is charming and has long beaches, sandy at mid-low tide. Enjoy!

Here's your full run down of this place, inside and out...

Inside

The style is modern, clean, bright and airy. The house is best in the shared spaces. The kitchen is huge and really well set up for family holidays; a big central bench, a side kitchen table, a small sofa for chatting. The back wall has bifold windows and opens on to the terrace. This side of the house gets a great deal of sun and it's a very lovely spot with them open for kitchen living.

The giant sitting room has three 3 seater sofas and a big TV with Sky movies for vegging out, or kids movie night after a day at the beach.

Bedrooms are a generous size, modern and chic. Bathrooms are smart and sparkly. The virtual tour will show you everything. We love that the street here is so quiet, that in summer, with the windows open, it's such a quiet spot.

Families with people to spoil - especially good for VIP birthdays and multi generation family groups, will really love it here. For those with kids, they'll be smiling. There are toys aplenty. The garden is entirely enclosed at the back and the  ice-cream kiosk is a nice 5 mins walk along the cliff top. And you can take them for breakfast on the beach - we did mention that it's 3 minutes walk didn't we?

Home truths

In summer, you need to park in the driveway, the road becomes semi-dangerous territory with parking inspectors visiting from time to time. There's space for 3 cars easily.

Accessibility

There's one step in to the house at the front door, otherwise flat in the kitchen and downstairs shower. All bedrooms are upstairs but the stair rail is good.
