    The area is lovely and the scenery is stunning. It is exactly as pictured but somehow nicer in reality. Yvonne met us there to show us round and explain how everything works - we phoned her when we were 30 minutes away. As we went as 2 separate familes, this was just perfect. A choice to be separate or together. Both kitchens had a box of biscuits,tea bags & sugar, kitchen roll & washing up liquid. Both toilets had soap & toilet rolls. There were bath towels and hand towels. The beds were pristine and there was a 4 pint of milk in the fridge. There were even books, a pack of cards and pens in the drawer. So much more than we expected. The little local co-op was lovely and the owners/staff were very friendly & helpful. They suggested where we should go and how to get there and invited us to the local coffee morning. Personally, I would have liked a decent map with the cottage marked on it, so I could get my bearings and a list of suggested places to visit and the directions. Something I think the local tourist information should provide for holiday cottages & hotels in the area. We would happily return and heartily recommend
