“Luxury in abundance”
Reviewed 11 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

My husband & I stayed at Blackthorn the week before Christmas to celebrate our wedding anniversary and my husband's 65th birthday. We could not have asked for any more, the cottage is so clean, comfortable and cosy. The hob tub was so perfect - sitting under the stars relaxing, and the swimming pool was an added bonus.

Peter and his family were so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.

We would certainly recommend this little gem of a find to anyone wanting to get away and recharge their batteries.

“IDLYLLIC SPOT TO RELAX”
Reviewed 3 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Spent three nights here over the Christmas period - the cottage is in a wonderful position and if you like birds and wildlife you will not be disappointed. The views are great and the added bonus of the swimming pool and jacuzzi made it all a very nice experience. The owners, Peter and Karen, were really welcoming and very helpful in providing local information and advice. We hope to return some time in the future when the weather is a bit warmer - this place must come into its own when the sun is shining during the summer months!!
