The cottages are in a great location if you're looking for a relaxing break to get away from everything. There are no amenities whatsoever in the local area, but as long as you are happy to stock up on food and drink before you arrive then that's not an issue. The local scenery is really beautiful and there are plenty of great swimming spots and hiking routes nearby. The hot tub is particularly great so I would definitely recommend trying it out! Alan, the owner of the cottage was very nice and welcoming, and had lots of tips for things to do during our stay. The only thing that left a sour taste was how rude his daughter was. I certainly hope that she is not a regular staff member, as she really shouldn't be left to deal with customers.
