400 year old family house full of vintage charm


Wynd House has been in the Wood family since it was built in the 17th century. It’s a wonderful house full of character and history, situated in the heart of the village with superb sea views.

With its own ladder from the garden down on to the sands, Wynd house is ideal for the beach, but with a log burner in the drawing room and amazing views from the window seat, you will be snug on even the briskest of winter days. Elsewhere, the library turret in particular is a wonderful place to curl up with a book – and it, too, has a stunning view. On a more practical note, the house is fully-equipped throughout, including a newly-refurbished kitchen and bathrooms.

Outside there are four gardens to choose from with lots of seating and a gas BBQ. There is a large and fully-enclosed back garden, ideal for young children; the Nuns’ Garden, so called because nuns looked after injured soldiers there during the war; a front garden and that quintessential Elie asset, the Sea Garden.
