Wow what a Honeymoon! After the last few hectic months we could not have wished for a more gorgeous and relaxing setting. Honeymoon Cottage is just divine we hope all our choices in life are as good as our choice to stay here at The Cottages. Thanks so much!

We enjoyed the incredible gardens, the lovely interiors – the luxurious “extra” touches – the beautiful sea (in which we swam twice). This place is a piece of heaven!!! Many thanks!
