The first bedroom is furnished with an opulent king-sized bed complete with silk throws, olive-coloured cushions and a headboard.

We stayed at Orchard View for one week. Our stay was absolutely incredible! The cottage is very cosy and homely, we especially enjoyed the wood fire hot tub and the outside sauna. Everything about the property was great. The hosts were extremely helpful and accommodating, responding to us very quickly and going above and beyond to help us with whatever they could. We have already recommended this to all our friends and would do the same to whoever is thinking about staying here!!!
