      Small but perfect place for a getaway with stunning views
    You have the best of both worlds with out of the way quiet places nearby, but also a large village and town a few minutes drive
    We loved it as a base for walking

      We had a great time here, the views are stunning, location is ideal if you want to get off the beaten track and escape. The local shops/amenities are just 5 mins down the road. The added bonus of the hot tub helps after a day out in the mountains. It has all the facilities you’d need for a short stay, microwave, kettle, pots etc. it’s clean and tidy, the bed is comfy and the room was lovely and warm, it’s private from the main house and not overlooked. The pets are also super friendly. We really enjoyed our time here.
