Local to the Steeple & Belfry

So many of our guests comment on the Steeple and Belfry’s perfect location just a few minutes leisurely walk to both the South Bay beach and town centre. And if youd rather catch a bus, a local service stops rights across the road.

There’s a convenience store just around the corner, and you can enjoy a home-cooked meal, live music and a pint of real ale at Cellars Bar a couple of minutes walk away.
