We stayed here for our 1 year wedding anniversary. What a great spot. We chose Windsong cottage - really well furnished, spacious & private. Looks just like the pics on the website. The owners are lovely and recommended some good restaurants in town. If you want a romantic weekend away i would highly recommend Observatory Cottages :)
