The cottage was more beautiful than we imagined, remote and had views to die for! It was very well equipped and would comfortably sleep 10 (we had 9, one person slept in the double sofa bed in the snug). I would suggest arriving before dark as the drive up there is rather hairy in places!! But do not let that put you off, just get your shopping before you arrive so you have everything you need. Not really the sort of place where you can pop out for milk and bread if you have forgotten it! Once there it is the perfect base for for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. We hope to return in the Summer. If in doubt - BOOK this place! You will not be disappointed.

As it was November we were pleased to find the bungalow nice and warm. It was well equipped and comfortable with lots of extras and lovely comfortable beds. The games room is a great idea. We found Pam very helpful and the complimentary treats were most welcome and generous. We would certainly stay there again and recommend it to friends and family.
