  • We stayed at the cottage in November 2016. We were retracing our family history and discovered a lot about our family history. We loved the serenity and the wildness of the area as well as the friendliness of the locals. The cottage was lovely, warm, cosy and had every comfort we needed.

    We were very protected from the elements with spectacular scenery from every window.

    It was like our home away from home and we very much felt we belonged with the family history in the area. We would love to return one day. Lyn and Jane from Australia 06/11/20
