The Bothy was a lovely cottage just right for me to use as a base to explore the area I came to on family holidays as a child. There was milk in the fridge when i arrived and both Carolyn and Koos came to welcome me. There was plenty of info on the local area and dvds to borrow if needed. Theres a very short walk and several secluded places to sit and have a glass of wine down by the river too. The wet room was wonderful and the bedroom, cosy and very comfortable.
It was a lovely stay and I'd certainly recommend the Bothy and the other cottages and lodges owned by Carolyn and Koos.
