Lovely cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in May.

The cottage was lovely.

Sue and Geoff were really friendly and helped us with directions and suggestions of places to go nearby.

We had our own privacy as the cottage is completely enclosed and we had our own little garden which was really nice.

We will definitely be returning!

Peaceful and tranqil location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our Son for a week and it was really lovely. The cottage catered for all our needs and the owners are friendly and helpful. Its a rural area and is walking distance to a stunning river and quaint little town. This has a small shop, bakery and a bar. We went fishing and on lots of walks. Its a short drive to the bigger towns with ample restaurants and bars. A car is recommended.

A really great holiday which we returned from feeling relaxed and rested. Thank you Geoff & Sue..
