This is one of my favourite places on earth! We have stayed in Blencathra (one bedroom cottage) twice for 4 days at a time. Shannon is the two bedroom cottage on the same property. King Island is a wild and windy place, with some of the best produce on the planet. The cheese factory is legendary, but the beef, lamb and lobster is also "melt in the mouth".
The cottages are situated on a headland looking out to sea and you get to watch the fishing trawlers ride the waves in each day. It is spacious and extremely well provisioned by the owners and other fellow travellers who help to stock the cupboards. The bed is really comfortable, the bathroom and spa bath is fabulous and there is an ample supply of videos, cds and books. Really, you just go there for the peace and quiet. It is such a fantastic place to escape all the hustle and bustle of the mainland. For us "east coasters", watching the sun set into the ocean is also magic.
You'll never want to leave.
