    The road is a little daunting in the dark but the cottage is amazing. Enough sleeping space for 6 adults and the fire place makes the place very cozy. And heats up incredibly quickly. We will stay there again.

    Hi and thank you for your feedback on our cottage. Yes we do try to get everyone here before it gets dark as the road is a little bit confusing as to how long it is to drive in when dark. Beautiful drive in lots of daylight! Look forward to your return back at some time.
