7th comment: Comfortable and very spacious bungalow, well equipped, and in a quiet, peaceful location which was so nice to come home to after busy days trying to see all the places of interest in a very good area. There was so much to see and do that we ran out of time on our two-week holiday. We also found lots of good places for eating out, so our slaving-over-a-hot-stove was kept to a minimum - just the way we like it when on holiday!! Sept 2008.
8th comment: The accommodation was superb and close to all tourist attractions especially the Landmark Centre. The cottage was like home from home and the real fire was a special treat. April 2009.
9th comment: Absolutely excellent accomodation - our second visit there as we loved it so much...so much space and fantastic amenities, we love it! Only slight improvement which could be made would be to have a secure garden area (for dogs, small children etc) as garden is not secure - it is open to the road. Apart from that..first class !!! Sept 2006.
10th comment: We went as a group of 8 friends and the cottage was perfect for our requirements. There were three separate toilets and two separate showers which obviously reduced the queues in the morning! We did lots of walking and found there were plenty of varied routes to keep us going all week. The utility room at the cottage was particularly useful for storing boots and outdoor clothing and we took full advantage of the washing machine and dryer. We had a fantastic week and would definitely like to go back! May 2006.
