Great location

Pros: The great view.
Cons: Maybe a dishwasher.
Location: Great location, close enough to villages and restaurants.
Beautiful little cottage, had a lovely peaceful break. Loved waking up looking out at the tree ferns and hearing the birds. Well set up, the cottage has all you need to spend a romantic weekend. Close to the local villages, would definitely stay again.
