We had an amazing holiday, the location was really peaceful and beautiful, with lots of nature all around. The owners, next door were really friendly and helpful, but not intrusive on our privacy. The cottage was beautiful and comfortable and we felt very at home. Great views from the windows. Lots of things to do in the area, for all weathers. We Read morehad a heatwave, the beaches were beautiful, clean with white sands and clear cooling sea, and very quiet. Hide

This is a very comfortable house in a beautifully remote location, with wonderful views and everything you could possibly want by way of equipment etc. Very friendly and helpful hosts (and dog!) next door. The fact that there is no internet connection and no phone signal makes for a complete break from normal busy-ness.

Idyllic place to stay if you want to get away from it all. No internet, plenty wildlife and friendly next door dog, if you don't mind her in the house leave the door open, otherwise keep door closed. Neighbours very obliging

We stayed here for my birthday and it was absolutely amazing. We stayed by the fire and cooked delicious food while staring out the window at birds and deer. We also went for nice hikes around the area and enjoyed the views from the drive into the property. Great stay, lovely people and friendly dog! Would definitely recommend to others
