  • Pros: Cosy cottage

    Pros: Cosy cottage. Homely feel. Great fully fenced garden. Good views away from road. Cons: Could do with a heat pump in the main living area for fast heating in the morning. Location is right by the main highway (quite a lot of traffic noise as Windows aren't double glazed). At $220 per night I felt that this property was overpriced.
