This is a lovely cottage in an amazing setting. We thoroughly enjoyed our week there and Richard and Karen made us most welcome and the complimentary afternoon tea was a lovely touch. We will certainly be returning to this wonderful part of our country.

What a beautiful property set in the most peaceful of locations with a great view. We needed a few days away given the past few months and the cottage was perfect. Richard ensured everything was ready for our stay and it was ideal.
