    Derek and his family were very friendly and helpful. Beautiful surroundings and plenty of places to visit within easy reach of the cottage.

  • Ron

    The cottage was well equipped, clean , plenty of linen. Ideal location for All amenities. The only negative criticism was the drive up to the cottage, the road was in desperate need for repair to the potholes. If that would be repaired, I would definitely return, and would like to know if that were the case. This is a true feedback of such a lovely cottage. Thank You.

  • Peter

    It was well stocked with essentials and tourist information. One word of warning to owners of vehicles low to the ground with low suspension or low skirt body kits, the approach road is not suitable and in any case great care should be taken to avoid some significant pot holes. Otherwise, outstanding work by very friendly owners
