Hear from our guests

We arrived Friday ready to relax and take it all in, but of course, Angus wanted to go straight for a fish and the lucky bugger got one after 20 minutes of fishing!! HE was a nice one too. Had him for dinner – hot smoked, simply divine!

We enjoyed our stay at Clover Cottage for the second time. It is one of the most beautiful corners of the earth. It exceeded all our expectations once again. The animals have multiplied ( the sheep have anyway)…..

Once again, thank you we will definitely continue to return.
