We stayed there for 2 nights and were not disappointed in the slightest! The central village location is superb, the views are stunning & the cottage was lovely & clean & the rooms very comfortable. The welcome pack when we arrived was one of the best welcome packs we've ever had. The cottage is also Dog Friendly which is a bonus. We can't wait to return in the spring. Highly recommended. I noticed negative feedback from a previous traveller, don't let this put you off as I believe the feedback was very unfair.
