Three of us enjoyed a late-Autumn three night cycling holiday, exploring the east of the island, and stayed in Swiss Cottage, which suited us perfectly. Very friendly, well managed, excellent value, and therefore highly recommended in this regard.

My sister Dorothy and I spent a really enjoyable week at Swiss Cottage during July. Our hosts Christine and Keith, not forgetting Tansy, were very friendly, yet most professional, and made us feel most welcome. The accommodation could not be faulted, with many extras not expected. The food was excellent - well cooked with plenty of choice. Would certainly recommend... More
