Absolutely beautiful place to stay

"We came here in snow and strong winds and were instantly surprised at how warm and cosy the cottage was. It was beautifully equipped with everything you could need and more besides. Spent one wonderful morning watching it snow through the kitchen window while we did one of the jigsaw puzzles. It's a long time since we have relaxed the old-fashioned way like that and it was brilliant. The wifi was good, so we were able to find information about places to visit, but in fairness the cottage was so nice - comfortable beds, lashings of hot water and fluffy towels, plenty of logs and coal for the fire, and so on, that we didn't venture out much. At night, when the clouds cleared, we could see a million stars. Absolutely beautiful place to stay."
