    A beautifully appointed, comfortable place to stay. No complaints whatsoever about our stay. We were thrilled to be in the middle of nowhere, peaceful and rural - but others may find the single track road accessing the cottage difficult. Would really recommend Sweet Bay Cottage to those looking for a 'get away from it all' break, in high-end accommodation and with access to 3 delightful pigs!!! Really appreciated the fact that it was dog friendly, too, as so many places nowadays aren't. Many thanks!
