Our weather is strongly influenced by the Atlantic Ocean which is on our doorstep. We don’t get the extreme temperatures that other countries at similar latitude would have. The average temperature is a mild 50°F and a major warm ocean current called the North Atlantic Drift keeps sea temperatures mild too. Some of our guests have even been known to swim from the slipway!
It does rain frequently here, but long bouts of rain are quite rare and we see plenty of sunshine too which means that we often see rainbows. Bring good sturdy footwear and a waterproof jacket and you’ll still be able to enjoy walks on the shoreline or in the country lanes no matter what the weather. If you do forget to bring wet weather clothing, we have spare wellies and waterproof jackets which we can lend to you.
