A lovely cottage. Very comfortable, with wonderful views.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Shepherd’s Cottage. It is in a wonderful setting with great views down the valley. Very well set up and welcoming, including for children. The hosts were excellent!

Wonderful weekend at Dartonia Cottage

5 of 5
Wonderful weekend with my sister and some friends for her birthday. The cottage was warm and comfortable despite the appalling January weather. There is plenty of space for 6 people and two dogs. We loved the top floor room with its en-suite shower, and fantastic views across the estuary. There's a well equipped kitchen/diner with plenty of room for dinner and cards (we also ate out once), we'll definitely be back.
