An amazing property - no one wanted to leave. We will be returning for sure. Thank you so much to the owner for being so kind and helpful!
Mrs Rix

The Cottage was very well equipped, spacious and presented well. It was a pleasure to stay there.
Mrs Waterfield

A great place to get away from the rat race for a while.
Mrs Sullivan

A year has gone by and the same group of friends enjoyed a great weekend away in this lovely property. Gemma looked after our minor needs very well and we were comfortable and warm with plenty of room for all of us. Our only small gripe is the taps in the kitchen turn on the wrong way and we all had an unexpected shower on a regular basis. Also please note there is no wi-fi at this property.

Fantastic, spacious cottage in a great location. Interior is exactly how a cottage like this should be fitted out. Lovely big kitchen, sizeable bedrooms and the lounge room with fireplace is absolutely outstanding. Hot tub is a dream, though being able to set the temperature would be a benefit. Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends!
