 Delightfully quaint and cosy in a good location. Property is however a bit tired. 

 close to town 

 Conveniently close to town. 

 The cottage is cosy, very warm, and tidy. Bedrooms have a descent size. Homemade Brownies and fresh eggs from happy chocks were waiting for us when we arrived. We felt comfortable instantly. Property is easy to find, as we were given a detailed description. 

 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay ay Rose Cottage. I arrived off the Ferry on a cold night and walked into a lovely cosy warm cottage, lights on, and home baking left out for us. Thank you so much to the lovely owners who were a phone call away if we needed anything. We will definitely be back and would love to meet you in person for lunch on the island next time. Will surely recommend to family and friends.
