“I visited Paradise!”
Reviewed 29 September 2013 for a stay in May 2013

In May I stayed at the River Ken Cottage. I had chosen it among others, as the surroundings looked so tranquil, which was just what I needed. The location was perfect, the air clean and the hills beautiful...my next door neighbour was the river Ken, who´s quiet stream sang a quiet lullaby each evening.
The cottage was perfect: clean, and had everything I needed.
The long walks were beautiful, even on a rainy day! I saw plenty of wild life, especially deer and foxes, sheep, and was lucky enough to even see a black grouse, among plenty of other birds. I was happy I brought my binoculars! The setting was so very romantic!
But to top it all, the owners were extremely helpful with everything, and truly made me feel welcome...and yet they respected my privacy too, which I was very grateful for. I cannot recommend this place high enough....I´m sure I´ll be back every year, just hoping they will be able to accomodate me again!!
