Lovely, cosy, quaint cottage with 1940s/1950s features in a beautiful, relaxing setting surrounded by countryside. Very peaceful hearing nothing but birds and calves. The kids loved being able to see the young farm animals out front and go for walks on the farm, while hubby enjoyed wandering around the surrounding fruit trees and vege patch (being a keen gardener!). House was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for our short stay. Great place if you want to get away from it all!
This cottage is amazing, and in such a beautiful spot, we all could have stayed there longer just to enjoy it. The girls out out on the pond for a paddle around even though the weather not the best but then warmed up by the fire. Thanks so much for an enjoyable stay. We want to come back again for the same weekend next year.
If you want country with no hassle... Ruffit Lodge is the place to go. Julie is awesome and the cottage has everything you need. Shall be back again next year. Loved the sound of the bird life in the evening and morning. Brilliant.
Nice wee house very good fire and heaps of wood it was very cold at night outside but the house was warm.
Very friendly hosts who were very helpful with what was happening in the area. Places to eat etc
