“Wonderful stay in an idyllic and relaxing home from home.”

A group of 5 of us booked Old Essmore Cottage for 2 nights and we had a fantastic time! Gorgeous house, very comfortable beds and everything u could possibly need is here. Great modern kitchen and lovely log fire made for a memorable and relaxing stay. Our host Gerard and his wife were available to contact with any issues/ questions and very prompt in sorting them out. We felt very much at ease here and will definitely be back again very soon!
