A comment from the guest book:
'Beautiful cottage set in the most awe inspiring surroundings, we are so glad we chose this cottage as the restoration work and passion put into the place is unbeliveable. Spent many happy hours getting lost up in the hills but the best part was coming back to your cosy cottage in the evenings relaxing with a drink by the fire. You have truly made this trip unforgettable, we will hopefully be back later in the year'.
