    The bungalow was immaculate and well equipped in a very peaceful setting. It was also very comfortable. The perfect setting for visiting places north, south, east and west. We hope to visit again in the not too distant future.

    Cottage was slightly smaller than expected but adequate space for two. My only minor criticism is that there is no freeze box in the fridge, when one is on holiday, ice cubes are essential for those holiday drinks. Putting that aside, I would stay there again and would recommend this cottage to others.
