Absolutely breathtaking if your city people and want remote countryside, this is your place. At the top of a mountain with unspoilt views, nothing but sheep and many varieties of birds. The owners hospitality was outstanding, made sure we had all we needed. The cottage is beautifully finished and spotless, the local pub is a bit of a walk down a long track but worth it, the locals were lovely and friendly. We will definitely be back in the spring.

It has everything you could need and is a real home from home. The accommodation is well laid out and it was spotlessly clean. The owner was very kind and helpful, would highly recommend it.
