Simon and the oaks
Have you seen the film “Simon and the oaks”, then you have seen many film clips made at the cottage’s garden, beach and piers.
Simon’s cottage is located as a detached house by an boat construction house. Here you have the garden all to yourself, you also have the beach to yourself as usual.
Sometimes some neighbors come out with their boat or the owner who needs something in one of the outbuildings.
SUNBATHING ON THE BEACH
Bring the sun loungers down to the beach and sit all day and enjoy the view with boats bouncing past.
Here it is possible to take a dip from the bathing steps on the pier.
It is also possible to swim at the beach but it is shallow, not so good bottom and some seagrass.
Note, There has been a boating business for over 100 years along the entire shoreline so for your safety bring your bathing shoes.
