  • "Great little cottage, very comfortable, very clean and well equipped."

    Loved the log burner which kept us toasty warm. Great spot for getting away from the hustle and bustle of inner city life. Very relaxing bolt hole with nice relaxing walks. Fabulous contact with the owner when needed, who was very accommodating.
