  • Great little cottage with stunning views

    Great little cottage with stunning views. Quite a drive to get there although very worth it.

    I really enjoyed my stay at this magical bach, completely private, stupendous views and wonderful bird song. A great place for so many walks and activities nearby.

    The Hairy Hobbit is a spectacular melting pot, bringing together the essential elements required for a peaceful, magical holiday away. Drink coffee in the sun while you soak in mountain and sea views. Bath under the Milky Way while a cool breeze whistles through the trees. Eat from the fruit trees and read your favourite book in the hammock. So much time and effort has gone into perfecting this little paradise. Thank you Paul for sharing your place with us.

  • We had another magic stay over Christmas

    We had another magic stay over Christmas. The cottage has everything you need and although more "rustic" (you will have to do without high power using appliances), it is certainly far from roughing it. As with our last visit the outdoor bath got well used, even to cool down in on hot days when it becomes a shady spot in the afternoons. The only place I drink water straight from the tap as it is deliciously cold.
