The cottage was spotless, it was equipped with everything we needed. The views were breathtaking, perfect location for those who like walking. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Property was equipped with towels and beds for dogs. Overall impression, everything exceeded our expectations. We are hoping to come back to the cottage some time this year.

The cottage was spotless, it was equipped with everything we needed. The views were breathtaking, perfect location for those who like walking. Owners very friendly and helpful. We were welcomed with home made scones, raspberry jam and bread ( the best we've ever had). We were allowed to take 2 dogs with us (even if the advertised allowance is 1). Property was equipped with towels and beds for dogs. Overall impression - everything exceeded our expectations. We are hoping to come back to the cottage some time this year.
