We stayed in the Parndana Cottage for 3 nights. What a wonderfully comfortable and interesting place to stay. We loved the isolation and peacefulness. It was great to be able to walk to the Lighthouse and to the fur seals. The Remarkable Rocks and Weirs Cove is a short 10 minute drive away. The weather was windy and cold whilst we stayed at the cottage, but with the lovely thick stone walls, it was very warm and comfortable inside.
We loved that the cottage had kept the flavour of a historic cottage, and not modernised. It added to the character and feeling of the place. We did not want for anything. It is recommended that you plan to cater for yourselves at the cottage, particularly for dinners, as the closest restaurant is 30 minutes drive away. There is a good cafe in the NP, but is only open from 10am-5pm.
