Luxury Historic Cottage was absolutely wonderful. Every detail was thought of and Annie & Alistair went out of their way to ensure our stay was a memorable one, and we thoroughly enjoyed their hospitality as we dined with them at The Homestead. This is a perfect place to take a break from the real world and enjoy the serenity and history surrounding this special property. !
Michele - Jul 2019

It's a great place to get away with family or for a romantic weekend. There is plenty of space for children to enjoy exploring, with many farm walking and biking tracks, and the beach is less than a mile away. While it is not good for swimming it is a lovely spot for a long walk or skimming stones.
