Koala cottage was superb. The room,the host and location all met for a lovely stay, just what we needed. Not to mention the breakfast which was cooked and served to perfection. All we missed was the jacuzzi which was out of order.

"All great rooms"
"The Sapphire Suite is just breathtakingly decorated."
"Each of the three rooms is accessed direct at the side of the property and are similar sizes. The road in front of the B&B is quiet."
"Sapphire suite is in the middle of the three suites. Quiet and private, would be warm and cosy in the winter months."
