Great little cottage for a weekend getaway

5 of 5
The place is fantastic. We stayed for 3 nights over the long weekend and had a wonderful stay. We were two couples with a couple of young kids (12months & 6 weeks). The house had everything we needed. The fire warmed the house nicely throughout the night and the hammocks on the front balcony are lovely to swing in while catching some morning sun. The house is styled really nicely with cool artwork and the beds are comfortable. The photos do not do the place justice (I have tried also but the angles just don't quite capture its charm). Would love to stay here again.

A great place to stay

5 of 5
We recently stayed while attending a wedding in the area. The cottage had everything we needed, including lovely food! Thank goodness for the air -con. The first night was cool and the next afternoon hot; fortunately the air -con handled it all. I would recommend it as a great place to stay.
