We stayed at Birches Cottage over Christmas 2010, Huck and Elsabe Orban has created a sanctury! We had the best night sleep in years! The food was amazing, the cottage clean and the bed so comfortable! We will definitaley go back there! Money well spent, friendly and homely and the view of the mountains and river is spectacular!
