  • “We really enjoyed our stay.”

    The owners were very helpful too. It was a very peaceful location and very beautiful surroundings. The cottage itself was just perfect. The website pictures are a little out of date - the cottage has definitely been upgraded in the living room and bathroom compared to what the websites show. Lovely outdoor spot for eating or just relaxing by the brook. Absolutely loved it. Highly recommend this cottage.
