Absolutely loved our stay at Widows cottage. The owners were welcoming and so helpful without being obtrusive, which really made the stay something special. Local walks are stunning, we especially loved the outing to the waterfall. Our son, who is 3 had the best time ever, he beamed every day, and loved the fact that the owner went the extra mile and found a tractor our for him to play with. Love the location and have fallen in love with the cottage. Will be going back for a second visit as soon as we can. Thank you for an amazing holiday.
