Birdsong cottage was clean, warm, homely and very cozy which made it very easy to stay in and watch Netflicks, play board games and read books! The kitchen was well equipped and the bathroom had a surprise outside door to the spa on the deck, very convenient! The cottage is in need of a little updating but overall a very relaxing enjoyable stay.
