The detail

Built in 1900 as coal storage for the nearby Tiumpan Head Lighthouse, The Bunker's impeccable restoration is a tale of love and family legacy. Set on the shore with stunning sea views, this is the ideal spot for a tranquil escape. Here, contemporary design and modern amenities blend seamlessly with the breathtaking natural surroundings. Relax and listen to the lapping waves as you take in the awe-inspiring landscape from the reinforced glass balcony. Explore local wildlife, scenic beaches and fresh produce at local eateries, before settling in for the night by the toasty wood burner, whisky dram in hand. 

Located on the first floor at the top of a spiral staircase, the spacious open-plan living area and kitchen are the hub of this unique property. Calming tones and modern furnishings make this inviting space a place of calm, ideal for relaxing day or night. 

With windows encompassing the room, there's ample opportunity to take in the stunning vistas. Curl up on the sofa with a book with the sea as your backdrop, or step through the sliding doors and breathe in the fresh air on the reinforced glass balcony, offering uninterrupted views.

Ready to settle in for the night after a day's adventure? Curl up by the toasty wood burner with a glass of wine and listen to the soothing sound of lapping waves. A telescope adds that special touch - stay snug whilst stargazing from the comfort of your abode.

Get ready for the day ahead by cooking a hearty meal in the fully-equipped kitchen with its Nespresso coffee machine, or enjoy cosy dinners around the wooden dining table. The delightful downstairs area features a bathroom, kitchen and utility room with storage space, as well as a washer and dryer for your convenience.

After a satisfying day's sightseeing, the luxurious  bathroom will leave guests feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Carefully curated with a walk-in rainfall shower and natural materials, textures and colours, it's a haven to help you unwind.

Ready to sink into peaceful slumber? Doze off in comfort in the west-facing ground floor bedroom featuring a super-king size bed and plush carpets. Wake to blissful sea views, feeling refreshed for a new day.

Idyllically located, The Bunker offers beach access and a sea slipway, as well as a plethora of activities in and around the area.
