"Perfect break in marvellous setting"
We stayed 4 days in slack cottage which was too short. It's the perfect starting point for numerous walks and trips. The house is very clean and tastefully furnished. The friendly hosts prepared a great English breakfast and gave useful advice for our daily explorations. The view is stunning and it's wonderfully quiet. Read less
