4/5 Good

Cottage was ok. It had everything that we needed and once we had been there for a bit was nice and cozy. Sadly it rained all the time that we were there so were unable to go on any walks around the area but would have been very handy if weather had been suitable.

Travelled with family and small children
I cannot recommend this beautiful place highly enough. We stayed with our 4 year old son and he was encouraged to ask questions about the vineyard and even collect eggs. Amber was so welcoming and the check in was seamless. Nothing was too much trouble. Place was super clean and bed comfy. We even got to do a wine tasting and couldn’t help buy a few bottles to take home. Would highly recommend. We will definitely be back 😍
