It also has incredible sea and country views and comes with an adjoining cottage and a successful tea garden business.

Hornblower Lodge is an adapted and extended former foghorn station that was built in 1900 as a warning system to ships during inclement weather.

Its two 20-foot-long foghorns perch on the roof, but have not been in use since they were decommissioned in 1988.
