Mill Cottage was very clean and well furnished the views were fantastic.
Mrs Mcleod

A really well equipped cottage in a beautiful location.
Miss Sauvage

Loved the location, the cottage was renovated really well but retained old style character. It was really warm with comfortable bedrooms, lots of room for a two bedroom property. We will be booking again.
Mrs Egan

A peaceful haven yet not too far from "the madding crowd."
Mr Green
