We had an incredible stay at Observatory Cottages. We stayed in the “Windsong Cottage” which was romantic and very private. We were provided with breakfast supplies for two days and complimentary bottle of wine. Communication was fantastic with Penny our “Hostess with the Mostest”. She was very attentive in trying to make the stay wonderful for us and she succeeded. We look forward to returning.

Beautiful cosy little cottage. Could’ve used more bedding (extra blankets ) we booked a four bedroom -3 queen & a double but were only given 2 queen and a double which was not ideal. There were trundle beds but no bedding. Dishwasher was broken yet no tea towels to dry the dishes made things a little awkward. The spa was also broken which was a shame too. The fact there is a cottage & a suite called the same name was a bit confusing but overall this was a lovely place and we enjoyed our stay. Very quiet with beautiful wildlife and very clean. The breakfast was amazing and extremely generous. Thank you for the chance to stay we would return when next in the area 😀😀😀
