    We especially enjoyed the 40 or so 3 week old calves who were penned just outside the cottage. It was fun to see them get fed their morning milk! Beautiful property!

    Unfortunately our stay was very short and we didn't get to see everything. The house is basic, but has everything. It's easy to find and in a lovely, quiet location. It would be nice to sit on the deck and enjoy the views :)
