Cottage is in a great location with several NT properties and museums close by as well as walks from the door. The electric heaters give out load clicks as they heat up and cool down, which means they can be heard throughout the night so we had to turn them off each night, not ideal when it was almost freezing outside.

This is a very stylish, comfortable and immaculate property, and the photos on the website do not do it justice. It is in a very peaceful location but with easy access to so many places of interest.
