    The house was beautifully furnished with everything you would need to settle in for a few nights or an extended stay. It is walking distance from town.

  • Lovely cottage and enjoyed our 1 night stay

    Lovely cottage and enjoyed our 1 night stay. The place took a long time to warm up. We turned hearted on when we arrived 1pm. After we went out exploring and came back it didn't feel much warmer. However in saying that it was a really ccold day/night but heater just didn't do a good enough job. We would return in summer as I can imagine it's a lovely sunny/warm place then.
