Lovely cosy cottage with pretty gardens in a quiet location but can easily reach all parts of the island by car. The log burner was great on a chilly evening.

Had a lovely week stay at this beautiful cottage. Everything we could ever need and we all loved it. Just need to note that there are steps down to the lane and a bit of a walk to the car space! Absolutely fine if you're able bodied but if not you may need to factor that in. Would definitely recommend

We really enjoyed our stay stay at the cottage. The garden was a particular highlight, with lots of areas for a curious 4 year old to explore. Located in a good central location, nowhere on the island was too far away and there were some really good pubs within a 5 minute drive. We would definitely recommend.
