Amazing cottage, very luxurious, highly recommended
We stayed here as a family in July. The cottage (hardly a cottage!) was amazing, very clean, very spacious and had everything you could possibly want. Very peaceful and quiet but yet close to loads of places to visit and see. Would definitely recommend and one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in so far.

As a group of 6 we stayed in Rowan Cottage. It's an upside down house with 2 bedrooms on the ground floor (1 can be a twin) with one opening out onto a well furnished patio which has steps up to the hot tub and onwards to upper patio which has a dining table and chairs aswell as sofa and chairs. 2 bedrooms upstairs (again 1 can be a twin), open plan living room/dining/kitchen. All bedrooms ensuite and also an extra toilet. Nothing has been overlooked with the refurbishment of these houses, there's a utility room and everything you could want or need is supplied. Amazing standard. Loved the wine fridge and the touch of flip flops for the hot tub and blankets to keep you cosy if sitting out. We wouldn't hesitate to come back here again.
