Since I visited Hanora's Cottage about a year ago, I vowed to return. Such was the hospitality and warmth, I was determined to share this gem with a group of friends who love walking. Each of them were charmed by the place, the friendliness and the pure peace of the area. I am already planning the next visit. Well done... More
