Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

For someone not knowing what to expect from glamping, I was very impressed by this cosy little cottage! Prepared to go back any time. The owner was friendly and helpful and brought a good start to a great weekend! The bed was comfy, the hot tub was lovely and the downstairs living space had everything you could possibly need! It has given me a perfect beginner's taste of glamping so I have discovered a new hobby!
