Reviewed 29 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We really loved the Fisherman's cottage. It's basic and a little down-at-heel ( blinds unravelling, broken chair back) but clean and very comfortable. What a pity that the rule of no loud music is not applied more rigidly. We sat outside enjoying the lovely scenery, watching the ducks waddle over from the pond and listening to the frogs ... when wham! that doof-doof music started. Because we were at a distance from the offenders, all we could hear was the underlying drumbeat. A polite request for quiet to the owner did help for about half an hour, and then it was back to the full volume horror. One doesn't want to keep nagging, and for the rest it is really a wonderful spot and very reasonably priced. Pity about the shattered ambience!

We have been here a few times and love it! The rooms are beautiful and well equipped, very clean and nicely decorated. Love the bar where you can get everything you like (we liked the Flying Fish!). The owners are so friendly, we really feel 'at home' when we are back again and definitely will go back! You made it a place of our own! Thank you again for your warm welcome and see you soon!
