I'll start with the positives as there are more than negatives! This retreat is exactly that- a retreat! Absolutely stunning roomy cottage with breathtaking views of the mountains & surrounding flora. The photographs do not do it justice! It would be perfect for a romantic getaway for a couple (or couples) or a solo trip in which you are seeking ultimate privacy and serenity. The Jacuzzi was sensational- we especially enjoyed the serene views and skylight. The host provides an abundance of breakfast and snack options free of additional cost so there is no need to bring nibbles! The premises has ducted heating throughout, so if a fireplace is not your thing you're covered. Beds have electric blankets which was a treat as we stayed in Winter.
Negatives are the cleanliness of not so regularly used areas (dust). The communication with the hosts was non existent. I sent an email, left a voicemail and tried ringing the landline twice but there was no answer or reply. For this particular trip it was no big issue, however if it was an emergency situation this is not ideal.
Also, I booked this accomodation as the description stated it was child-friendly and provided cots. Be warned this particular premises is NOT suitable for children under the age of 10!!! It is not baby-proofed at all, a lot of cupboards holding chinaware and antiques were in easy reach of a toddler! Having said that, I will definitely be coming back, but this time without children.
