We stayed one night at Thomas Cottage at Cape Willioughby and found it to be very comfortable with lots of character. The cottages were super clean and well equipped. The kitchen was so well set up that we were able to make homemade pizzas and enjoy them over a ruthless family game of scrabble that was among the board games that were supplied. (No complaints about no TV from us.) The weather gods chipped in and gave us the perfect thundery night for added atmosphere.
If we went there again, I would aim to stay in the end cottage, which I think would give better views. As the middle cottage, Thomas was a bit hemmed in and there wasn't really any vantage point to sit and enjoy the view on a rainy afternoon. Otherwise we loved it and would recommend it highly.
