  16. Well you never know what you’ve got till you get there . But from leaving the main road and driving down the half mile run to the cottage i can truthfully say on seeing the cottage and views it took my breath away .The cottage is well equipped, cosy and it was great to have the log burner if it got chilly. We had the most fantastic holiday staying at this cottage it was clean and everything you needed was there . With red deer, bussards, and all sorts of wild life as good as in your garden .You can walk from the farmyard straight into the lovely walks .The sort of place you can park your car till its time to return home .Telly who needs a telly . July 2009.
