    Loved this fantastic cottage hidden away amongst the bush. It was clean and tidy, well equipped and comfortable. Perfect winter getaway with log fire, spa pool and Netflix account. Will stay again ??

    A very warm cosy rental, plenty of firewood - which you need in the winter! Plenty of towels - there were 6 of us. Only "complaint"?, it would be good to have some of the foliage trimmed back around the driveway, also bear in mind it is a quite tight entry and requires careful negotiating.

    Really nice and quiet cottage, great heating and facilities. Kids LOVED the spa, roasting marshmallows and exploring the garden. (And of course Netflix and wifi) Thanks for having us.
