The Old Tea Room is a characterful town house at 28 High Street. Since 2012 it is has been Janine and Charlie Gauvain's family home on the island, but they are now sharing it with others as a self-catering holiday home for up to five people and a well-behaved dog!
The house has a long and fascinating history, first built way back in the 1700s and over the intervening years has been a home to many islanders, was occupied by German officers during WWII and became a Tea Room during the 1950s. In fact it is an extremely quirky and interesting building, with very few straight lines.
The house is set out over three floors with the kitchen being located on the ground floor in a former German bunker. It is the house for you if you like a cosy, homely atmosphere and quirky features.
