Fabulous cottage. Worked so well for a family get together. Beautiful location. The kids and dog loved the stream. The adults loved the kitchen/dining area. The new patio area is stunning.
WOW! WOW! WOW! by May 2015 on April 12th 2017
Wow wow wow , we have just spent a long weekend in this absolutely wonderful house. 11 ladies attended and found the house to be even better than the photos. Great areas for all of the party to spend time together, we were blessed with fab weather so the outside patio was fantastic, with evening spent in the big dining area and lounge. Would definitely return or advise as a great place to stay!
