Made very welcome by our host. Hot tub was very relaxing after our walks around the beautiful area. The location of the property was ideal, close to restaurants and bars.

The owner was there to greet us on our arrival and made us feel very welcome. The cottage was lovely, very cosy and the hot tub was a wonderful bonus. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone.
