This is such a peaceful place to relax. So perfect. Enjoyed the really substantial breakfast! Full for the rest of the day. Will definitely go back...

The wife and I stayed here for two nights. The views are spectacular and the cottage is beautiful. The room was large, clean and had awesome views. The owners were very friendly and helped us plan a good days walking and even loaned us a map. I would defiantly recommend Slack cottage for a nice quiet getaway in beautiful settings...
