  • Location is superb, a very pleasant place to stay

    Location is superb, a very pleasant place to stay. We were having a family reunion for a wedding and we were left in privacy which was fabulous. It is great that our doggy family member was also welcome. Rose Cottage is very well equipped and welcoming and we look forward to visiting again. Lovely story regarding moving and saving this lovely cottage.

    Amazing wee cottage in a fabulous spot. Deidre took great care of us and it was nice to have our dog welcome too. The house was clean with lots of space and lovely veranda.

    Rose Cottage is a little piece of paradise and the perfect place to stay if you're looking for peace and tranquility. The house is clean, comfortable and beautifully presented with a lovely indoor-outdoor flow. The views are just amazing and sitting on the verandah admiring the lovely gardens and listening to the birds (and the frog) was something special. The shower was really good and the towels and linen top quality. The dogs loved their stay just as much as we did. We will be back!
