The cottage itself is comfy and cozy. The shower is excellent and the bed is very comfortable. The stairs are a little steep and the ceilings are low so this needs to be considered. But was not a major concern. The cottage is perfect for a cozy, romantic getaway.

The location was great for exploring the surrounding area - there is so much to do. With welcoming hosts and lots of useful information provided, we had the perfect break.

With it's own private cinema room, an outdoor heated hot tub, incredible dining and kitchen area, you could get lost in this place even with a full house, so a lot of space for everyone with fantastic views. A sonos system throughout the house and an indoor fire pit, this place is perfect for a celebration and a chilled night with friends and family. Both Penny and Kelly were extremely helpful and accommodatinig with any questions that I had. A stunning property set in a beautiful part of the world, with access to every kind of need you may have!
