Great quiet location. Very comfortable accommodation with everything you need for a short break. The property owners were very welcoming.
There's nothing quite like the warm glow and comforting heat of a log fire to set the tone.
Enjoyed the real fire. A treat to see the squirrels feeding just outside our window. Beds very comfy. Good stock of games and walking books too.
As the name suggest, we have regular visits from red squirrels at the cottage.
