A wonderful cottage, run John and louise, a couple who have left no stone unturned in providing everything you should need for a fantastic stay. We have a 2 year old who wanted for nothing. The attention to detail was fantastic. A lovely area to explore the island. Great things to do on your doorstep and beyond.
Will be seeing you again very soon....

“A great cottage with all that you need”
Reviewed 6 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We stayed at Camellia Cottage over new year. The cottage has a wonderful, well equipped kitchen. The dining room was spacious and the lounge very homely. The owners of the cottage have very good eye for detail. The Cottage was decorated beautifully for Christmas. The children and dogs enjoyed exploring the garden! We had a wonderful stay and would definitely like to visit again.
