    This cottage is small but that is part of the attraction for me. The views are fabulous and from the small terrace at the back you can watch the wildlife going about its day to day routines. The interior is clean and nicely trimmed with exposed beams and the kitchen on a lower level down a short set of steps off the lounge area. The wood burner works really well and will keep you more than warm enough although there is central heating which equally maintains a nice temperature. At night it was very quite and with the roof light windows it was nice to wake to seeing the sky. And to top it off there is a hot tub which is perfect size for 2 people. If you want to get away and relax then this is an ideal spot but just a short distance from the lake area.
