Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The cottage was very cosy and well furnished. Aug 2011.
  2. This was the loveliest place I have ever stayed, it was so homely and welcoming. Can’t fault it at all, it was simply spectacular! July 2011.
  3. The best cottage we have stayed in so far, everything was perfect and the views are astounding. Perfect, perfect, perfect. June 2011.
  4. Beautiful little cottage in excellent location. Interior finished to high standard - a home from home! Dec 2010.
  5. Liked the furnishing, kitchen equipment and bed linen and towels were of good quality. July 2010.
  6. Gorgeous with lovely personal touches. Dec 2009.
  7. The views were spectacular from nearly every window. The provision of a washing machine and tumble dryer was very good as was the fridge freezer and microwave. A front porch was very useful for the storage of wet boots etc. July 2009.
  8. Old world charm, note- the bedroom ceilings exceptionally low! June 2009.
  9. Fantastic, stylish cottage in a great location - exactly as photos! May 2009.
  10. The cottage was perfect and the caretaker most helpful. April 2009.
  11. A beautifully eclectic and relaxing property... just what we needed! March 2009.
  12. Photographs were good and a great indication of the property. Important to state that no TV, the low ceilings and narrow staircase where for us not a problem at all as we are young fit healthy and no disabilities. Lots of little touches made it feel like a lived in home. Small things like a bit of washing up liquid and a few toiletries and candles all made it feel homely immediately and it was really helpful on our first night to have the availability of some coal . Many thanks for a wonderful restful week. Feb 2009.
  13. Just excellent all round accommodation. Aug 2009.
  14. A beautiful cottage in a lovely location. The photos on the website don’t do it justice. Highly recommended, even in low season. March 2008.
