    out of 10

    The cottage was immaculate and warm. Everything we needed was there. We even got a text from the owner to check all was well. Well placed and in a beautiful spot. I would highly recommend Kingfisher Cottage.



    out of 10

    Excellent in every respect. Wine and chocolate's on arrival much appreciated.



    out of 10

    Difficult to find, the visitors’ centre quoted in the directions was no longer there, so that needs up dating. ‘Parking for two cars’, turned out be on quite a busy road. We thought the original details were misleading. The cottage itself was nice, well equipped and well presented.
