Guest Reviews


    • “Cosy and comfortable”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We arrived to a very warm welcome from the owner. The cottage is small, but big enough for 4 - just. The furniture was clean and comfortable, as were the bedrooms, and a bonus - two loos. The view across the valley is wonderful. There was only just enough crockery/glasses/cutlery. We had some difficulty finding it - it is quite isolated, and the description of how to find the turn off from the main road are a little vague when it's your first time in the area. The isolation isn't a bad thing - so peaceful, especially when you're used to the constant intrusion of the sounds of a city.”
