    “We had a really lovely stay in the cottage, it was warm and cosy and very clean.”

    The setting is beautiful and the photos can't prepare you for the views from the windows which are absolutely stunning, we really didn't want to leave. The bedrooms and bathrooms are light and airy, the only slight negatives would be that the kitchen is a bit dated and the sofas are great if you have long legs as they're very deep! Overall we absolutely loved it and can't wait to be back there.
