The cottage was lovely and cosy with lovely friendly owners. It was nice and dog friendly, fabulous to see the red squirrels and so many other animals.

Excellent location and a beautiful cottage.

We enjoyed absolutely everything about this holiday! The cottage is just perfect and the setting is beautiful! It has everything you could possibly need, a real home from home, and the beds are so comfy! Just loved it! It's in a great location with easy access to lots of lovely places. Couldn't fault it at all!
