Cellar 3 which lies at the north-east end on the building is the most recent part of the complex to be developed, and was possibly open ground until the late 1870s.

The main access is from the courtyard, but it also has a door opening onto the beach. Its most notable feature are the three large beams supporting the floors above which seem to be reused ships’ timbers, including one curved deck beam. This cellar was also used as a cooperage, and within living memory, one wall was stacked with barrels for a shoal of pilchards that never arrived.

Cellar 3 is used by retired fishermen, who now sets nets full-time.
