The surroundings are stunning, Amanda is absolutely wonderful and friendly and the cottage itself is perfect. We had 2 nights of blissful peace and quiet and really didn't want to leave. We cant speak highly enough of this beautiful cottage, we will definitely be booking again. Thank you Amanda!

The open plan compact kitchen allows someone to prepare dinner (watch your head on the low roof!) while others wait at the table or relax on the sofas in front of the great log burner. You can also enjoy a drink on the balcony! Fantastic local hiking as you can ascend the mountain directly via private access and then explore the rest of the area... the hosts were also fantastic, being very friendly and welcoming!
