Lovely cottages amidst beautiful gardens. Pretty view into the valley with the sea in the distance. Nice pool. There for a family reunion which worked very well as each cottage was very private but close enough so we could meet and chat. Highly recommended.

Thank you for your lovely review. Craig and I are thrilled to know that you and your family group enjoyed their time here for the special anniversary. We always strive to present the gardens, cottages, animals and the property to the highest standards. The views from the cottages be it be out to sea or valley views are always breathtaking....

We stayed in cottage 4 with a lovely view down to the sea. We could even see splashes from whales breaching although it's too far to see the whales themselves. A lovely, private spot, good value for money for 4 people.

Spent a great weekend with a few couples to celebrate a friend's 60th birthday. The cottages are wonderfully situated close to each other, but each is still very private.
