17th June 2012

A very serene, peaceful and quiet environment.  The cottage was great and the fireplace was rustic and fun, especially lighting it!  Floyd is one hell of a dog!  Never seen such a loving and adorable old feller; my grand daughter’s most affectionate companion during our stay.  The eleven of us stayed in cottages 3 and 4.  The fishing was great.  Caught 5 trouts- released 3 as not too big .  Caught 2 refine in the river in the opening near the canoe holding area.  Only my son and I fished and catching 7 was not bad. …. despite the sheep and the shit we absolutely loved the place!!!
