Eastcliffe is a traditional fisherman's cottage dating from 1750. In its original state it would have looked rather different from its present form- there would have been two small rooms downstairs divided by a passage which led from the front door to the staircase. Upstairs there were three small bedrooms and no bathroom!! The "facilities" were in the small slated shed outside on the patio.
