    We absolutely loved our stay at the Library! The view was breath-taking and there were so many things to do within a short walk or drive away. The cottage itself was clean, comfortable and beautifully finished, we had everything we needed to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. The (decent) bottle of wine on arrival was very much appreciated. Highly reccomend.
