The private hot tub allows you to relax and enjoy the wonderful views, and a chance to rest your muscles from all the walking on offer in the area. This peaceful setting and beautifully appointed cottage, with many additional unique features such as a free standing bath in the bedroom, placed infront of the Juliet balcony, with stunning views overlooking the Quernmore Valley, provides the ideal couple’s retreat.

    We ab solutely loved this stunning cottage!! It is so relaxing and the hot tub with the views is incredible. The hot tub was immaculate and tended to by Diane the owner every morning. The cottage has everything you need and is beautifully decorated. The bath with a view was simply divine, as was the log burner on the chilly evenings. The owners are lovely and we even got a tour from Mark, who was friendly and helpful. We cannot wait to book again!
