Well equipped and spacious bach with everything you need for a rural escape. Comfortable beds. cosy lounge area, good kitchen, plenty of hot water and wood for the fire; lovely views and plenty of options for walking and exploring makes it an ideal retreat.
The property is a great character property and is very well equiped. The location is slightly out of the way but well worth the effort to go there. Very peaceful and relaxing. Lovely area to walk around and plenty of local wildlife to observe. Very interesting local history information provided.
