The cottage is in a quiet location with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. If you enjoy walking there are plenty off trails for you to try. The cottage itself was perfectly kept, clean, tidy & warm. It had everything we needed so was literally home from home.....we enjoyed a very relaxing weekend. We would certainly love to visit again in the near future.
