Our stay at Rose cottage was delightful. We were met by our host who provided us with wine and snacks as a welcome gift and showed us around the cottage. Its the perfect location to get away from the daily grind with lots of attractions nearby. Thoroughly recommend it.

We visited Rose Cottage with our 2 dogs. The owners let us use their fields to walk our dogs. There is even a pond where our dogs could swim. We were made very welcome by the owners. The cottage is nice and quiet. In the area are very nice places to see and to visit. Beds very comfortable.

Having said the above we had a great time the owners were very friendly and the cottage and location were beautiful. I loved being out late at night looking at the stars and watching the bats flying around the cottage.
