8th comment: We were more than delighted with every aspect of our stay at Four Mile Cottage. From the warm and friendly welcome from the owner on our arrival till the moment when we had to say our farewells on leaving. The cottage was spotless, the furnishings so comfortable and all our needs provided for. We hope to return to Four Mile Cottage in the future and will happily recommend it to our friends as a first-class holiday cottage. Oct 2010.
