  • "We loved our stay at Greenheart Cottage - the cottage has been renovated beautifully and we loved the location."

    The Bethel Chapel cafe across the viaduct was so cute and a real hidden gem. We loved the rain showers, super comfy L shaped sofa and sitting out on the deck in the evenings! Highly recommend this lovely cottage for anyone visiting the area. We'd love to stay again!

    Hi Danielle, Thank you for your lovely review. We are so pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay at Greenheart Cottage. We would love to welcome you back and hopefully the sun will shine too. Property Owner
