We had a great time staying at The Boomerangs for 4 nights in July 2016 during school holidays. Roz and Mark were great hosts. The gas log fire kept us nice and warm, together with the split system, the cottage was the perfect getaway from the hectic city life. Inside, splendid wall to floor windows with great views, two good... More

We loved staying at The Boomerangs for a few days. It was the middle of winter, so we drove through snow (!) to get there, but then the weather cleared. The first night had stars that alone were worth the trip. We were met by the very friendly and helpful Mark and Roz (and the gorgeous Hanna the wonderdog). The... More

After spending a day on a motorbike in the freezing rain this was a great place thaw out! 2 couples were easily catered for with plenty of room. Hannah the dog was super friendly and came to say hello often and kept us entertained. Great place to base yourself from to explore the area.

Nice, quiet place, beautiful garden/ view. Friendly owners. Easy check in and check out. Very spacious bungalow. Everything needed was there.Really nothing negative to say about this place. Only problem could be that there are not a lot of ( good) choices for restaurants in the neighborhood if you don't want to cook. Good idea to do some grocery shopping... More
