The cottage was comfortable , it had beautiful views and was in an isolated position which we particularly enjoyed. The single track up to the cottage was tricky to negotiate in the dark and initially difficult to find so best to arrive in daylight..

This property is all about the location and it couldn't have been more perfect for us in this respect. We stayed in a very cold and windy February and were comfy and warm in the house, so excellent insulation. We loved the remote location and enjoyed exploring the mountains. The road, although narrow is well maintained and so long as you stick to iRead moret, you wont get stuck - we drive a BMW estate, so not very high off the ground. The outside is secure enough to let your dog off, under supervision. Hide

The location was perfect and just what we envisioned for our chilled New Years Eve break. The cottage is beautiful, quirky and suited the needs of all the party of 7 including a fantasic outdoor hot tub and balcony overlooking the lake. The kitchen and dining area were perfect for sociable cooking and eating. While the cosy living room with log burRead morener was great for those cold winter nights. Cant wait to stay again in the future. Hide

It was 6 of us for my friends 30th and we had a brilliant time here. The location is amazing, the only neighbors being sheep so we could sing as much as we wanted ! The hot tub felt very luxurious. Nev is a really nice guy and was very accommodating. We hope to be back in the summer so we can make use of the balcony and eat outside. Thanks Nev!

A lovely , well equipped cottage in a beautiful remote location - emphasis on remote. Nev met us on arrival and gave us the guided tour. I suspect we may be going back.
