Next is the light and bright, spacious lounge, the perfect space to relax after a day out exploring the beautiful local area. Watch a great movie on the Smart TV and on those cooler evenings enjoy cosy nights in front of the roaring wood burner.

We had a lovely stay in this tastefully restored, cosy cottage. Everything was spotlessly clean on arrival and we were warmly welcomed by our host. The accommodation is definitely worth it's 5 star rating and is located perfectly for exploring the border area. We would definitely recommend this cottage to other potential guests.

We could not recommend a better cottage. The facilities are all there. The area has enough sightseeing available within driving distance, from 20 mins to 1 hour depending on your choice. Friendly welcome and great restful atmosphere.
