There are a number of footpaths nearby and the property's deck/balcony makes you feel right in the heart of the natural landscape. The cottage is well furnished and equipped and the owners were very friendly and helpful. We fully intend to return.

Bridget and Jim are a great couple, they have a beautiful house and gardens, very well kept and decorated.
