Up the stairs and guests are taken to the spacious open plan living area comprising a small but well equipped kitchen, a large dining area, sumptuous lounge with large TV and a small outside space perfect for al fresco dining or that cheeky glass of wine.
On the second floor guests will find two double bedrooms, one with an en-suite. Cabin 1 has a double bed. Cabin 2 has a double bed and single bed plus a bathroom with P shaped bath and over bath shower. There is also a separate toilet on this floor.

Importantly, guests need to note that The Nautical Nest is above the highly popular and well renowned restaurant 'Andria' that offers European Cuisine. Andria is well worth visiting as the food is stunning. Booking advised
