Beautiful location. Stunning view from living room window. Very comfortable double bed. Arrived quite late on a winter's night so cold and dark. Bring torch as dark up the driveway. Once we got the stove going was a cosy wee place. One match left so was a test of skill ha,ha. Plenty of dry wood. Woke to gorgeous views and birdsong. Highly recommended, very relaxing weekend. Great walk along the water, watching horses splashing in the shallows. Near Long Beach which is lovely too, white sand.
