“Absolute Gem”
Reviewed 15 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Amazing views of the countryside from the inside and viewing deck. The cottage itself is gorgeous and beautifully decorated. Absolutely everything needed for a relaxing weekend (or longer) away. The bed was a little slice of heaven.
Anita and Bruce were absolutely lovely and accommodating. Overall a really great experience. Would highly recommend The Butterfly Cottage and would love to go back!

“Exquisite Cottage and Location”
Reviewed 13 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Anita and Bruce could not have been more welcoming, accommodating, considerate, friendly and helpful during our stay ( Oh and the same for the dogs).
Butterfly Cottage is well layed out over two floors and very nicely decorated, well equipped and very comfortable (especially the bed with the choice of bedding). Providing excellent views from inside and also from the patio area in a quite rural retreat.
This would definitely be a property we/you would want to return to again and again and again.
''Practically Perfect in every way.''

“Tranquil stay in beautiful little house!”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Such a little gem. Gorgeous, well appointed with everything needed for a relaxing break amidst beautiful views. Delightful open plan living room upstairs, with full kitchen, TV, heating, lounge and dining furniture. Downstairs the bedroom is spacious and the bed very comfy. Lovely modern bathroom, heated mist-free mirror, bath with shower attachment. Owners are ace - as are their collies - oh and the cute spaniel too. Yummy surprise on arrival day - a loaf of delicious freshly baked bread brought in, still warm, home made by Bruce - immediately sampled some, heaven!! Terrace outside to sit in the sun sipping a cheeky glass or two whilst enjoying the scenery on a lovely warm August evening. Our well behaved collies were made very welcome and enjoyed socialising with the resident collies and also being fussed over by Anita and Bruce. Lots of walks in the area and many quaint little villages nearby.We will be back - 2 nights just wasn't enough - loads to see locally - we will be back !!!

Butterfly cottage made for a great short stay, it is in a great location for walking, cycling or travelling to the tourist spots. Anita and Brian were very welcoming and approachable. A great place to relax and recharge the batteries.
