    This is the second year running we have been here, made to feel very welcome. The weather has always been kind to us and we love the island. It is like turning back the clock to better times. Everyone is friendly and service is great. The cottage is very comfortable and the hot tub adds a special touch

    We had a great stay, the cottage had everything you could need from towels for hot tub, games and a welcome hamper. Our girls really enjoyed a visit from the owners dog winnie who is very friendly. Thanks for a really enjoyable stay.

    Superb holiday let, in fact, could quite happily live there! Owners there to meet and great and also see us off, lovely people, including a very friendly dog that our Grandchildren adored. Quite happy to return for a Autumn/Spring break.

    Mike and Ann were the perfect hosts from the exceptionally nice welcome pack to the general help and information regarding the local area that they gave us.

    Great place with lovely “mine hosts”. Saw first ever Wild red Squirrel and I’m 70. Ground floor makes an ideal place with some people with walking disabilities like myself. Need to remember the shape of the bottom of the bed, quite a surprise if you forget and sit down heavily in the middle. I usually take days to get used to another bed but no problems with this one slept all night first night. Owners dog Winnie should be called Minnie as in mix, a lovely full of vigour dog that always came to greet us. View from balcony lovely with perpetual bird song and beautiful sunsets which we watch from just over the water normally.
