This was a last minute booking and I was intrigued to stay in a place with some history. We were delighted with what we found when we opened the door - a gorgeous cottage with everything that we needed. We slept in the Queen bedroom and had no noise issues and it was a very comfortable sleep. The step-by-step instructions for lighting the fire ensured that we had a long lasting and warm fire. The spa was lovely to soak in. The breakfast provisions were enough for us. Greenock Tavern is a short walk down the road as is Kalleske's new cellar door. The included wifi was a nice touch.
