We stayed two weeks. It was an excellent place for taking daytrips. There's enough to do in the surrounding, all in 40 miles reach.

The cottage and the owners were great, however for a wheelchair user the drive way is a nightmare because of the gravel. Especially powered chair users. The only way of getting into the cottage was by backing up to the patio which had a screen at one end which is not shown on the photo
