The town has a wide variety of independent shops and cafes, along with several excellent public houses. There is a supermarket on the west side of the town, along with a recently opened theatre and bowling club close to the sea front.

DESCRIPTION 46 Ferndale Road is a beautiful Edwardian Villa that has been the subject of extensive refurbishment and renovation by the current owners. Externally attractive, the property has brick and rendered elevations beneath a tiled roof with bay windows set at the rear. There are outstanding sea views from many of the rooms and many period features with high ceilings, exposed timber floors and cornices and fireplaces etc. The welcoming reception hall opens to the dining room, a lovely entertaining space which, along with the kitchen/breakfast room opens to an expansive raised terrace, providing a great sense of inside/outside living. The dining room opens to the sitting room, a fantastic space with a splayed bay window and a log burning stove. Also at ground floor level there is a cloakroom/WC, a useful utility/boot room and the beautifully appointed, stylish kitchen which has a fantastic range of units, some integrated appliances and quartz work surfaces. The accommodation on the upper two floors is very versatile with potential for six bedrooms or five with home office space etc. Additionally there are modern, recently refitted elegant bath and shower rooms. The predominantly south facing mature gardens are another real benefit of the property with the sweeping lawns, mature trees and various fruit trees creating something of a lovely sylvan setting. Additionally there is a large cellar room and a summerhouse. Approached from Ferndale Road there is a good sized parking area that could be further extended if required and planning permission exists to construct a new garage.
