My family and I stayed in Cecil's cottage for a week and I wish we had booked two weeks. This cottage is stunning, so well finished and true to the style of yonder years. Eileen was so welcoming and her son, who lives in the house up the lane was so friendly, bringing the family donkey for our wee ones...

Management response:

Thanks for your lovely review. The cottage is a breath of fresh air for everyone who visits. We welcome your return in the future. Anita :)
