      An absolutely wonderful house, that felt like a real home. The owners should feel very proud of the holiday experience that they provided. Thanks Lovely part of the world as well!

      18 Castlegate is quite simply the most comfortable, tasteful, welcoming and perfect holiday getaway imaginable. We spent a fabulous long weekend there, 3 ladies of a ‘certain age’, celebrating a special birthday. The Cottage was the icing on the cake. I need to return with my husband now to sample the delights all over again. Lizzy the owner has thought of everything and as a holiday Cottage owner myself I’m particularly fussy!
