Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage was lovely, clean and cosy, exactly what we were looking for with a young family after a long day walking in national parks we were able to cook some good food and relax. John was very welcoming and gave us some great local info. Highly recommended, we would definitely stay here again.
