Stayed at Avelin Cottage for 2 nights while visiting the North East. The cottage was perfect for two and the owners very kindly stocked breakfast for us. Location is peaceful but still only a 5 minute drive from the centre of town. Looking forward to visiting again very soon. Many thanks to Linda & David.

Management response:

Thanks so much for a lovely review, very pleased you both enjoyed your stay, and we look forward to seeing you again Linda
