    “Cosy times”

    We loved being away in Chapel cottage for three nights. Loved the stove, the plentiful wood, decoration and the owners original artwork.

    We loved being away in Chapel cottage for three nights. Loved the stove, the plentiful wood, decoration and the owners original artwork. Comfortable and tastefully done it felt like home from home. We think will be going again soon. The area has a myriad of footpath's and cycle tracks that we only scratched the surface of. Be sure to book ahead to get into the ever popular Butt and Oyster pub at the bottom of the hill.
