A fantastic stay at a lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend & I stayed with Lorraine and Graham this last weekend and had a really lovely time. The cottage is finished to a really high standard with a great log burning fire and all the essentials you could need for a short stay. It’s a perfect distance to reach all of the north coast fishing villages and beaches. Couldn’t recommend it more highly and we’d love to return.

P.S. the chocolate brownie is hands down the best we’ve ever had!
