I think my favourite thing about Black Tree Cottages was the pair of eccentric old Brits who own this place. When we arrived, some children's play equipment was being delivered and while I sat by the pool watching, the older woman owner (her name escapes me now...shame!) took a zip down the children's slide. I knew immediately that I was going to like my time at Black Tree.
The accommodations are rustic but entirely clean and comfortable. Four of us stayed in a stone cottage with two bedrooms and a shared bath. Hot water was plentiful. The rooms were nice and cool. Beds were comfortable. But we didn't spend too much time in the cottage because this place is laid out over a large space of open land. There are chickens and rabbits and horses (all of them, properly free range), a pool, some shaded areas outside for lounging, a hammock. We visited in May and had the place almost entirely to ourselves. Breakfast and dinner were served on an outdoor terrace (there is an indoor dining room too and if it is cold and you ask, they will light a fire in the old stone fireplace....just lovely!). The meals were delicious and if you're a Brit missing home comforts, you'll appreciate the eggy bread at breakfast with fresh marmalade.
This place is a bit out of the way, which is great when you arrive but it might be a bit tricky to get to. Make sure you know how you plan to arrive or ask when you book. We were with a guided hike so we had private transfers. But to be honest, the locals in this area are so helpful and kind that you could probably arrange something pretty easily with a couple of inquiries.
