I had another great week staying in Selwyn Cottage. Everything that you need from a comfortable clean bed through to a bottle opener and nice wine glasses. The owners made sure that I had another great visit.

This self contained cottage is ideal from those wanting independence and privacy just moments (by car) from downtown Burnt Pine. The lush gardens mean the place is totally private. It has everything you need for a self catering stay and has a lovely homey feel.
