          Highlights: Location - You are as close to the mountain as you can get, its just a stone's throw away from Monk's Cowl. View: Uninterrupted view of the mountains from a very large covered patio.Garden: Superb, beautifully maintained, it surrounds the cottage to ensconce you in nature. The rock pool is really lovely, and just the running water provides a soothing sound.Cottage: Spacious and well equipped, with really comfy beds.

          Enjoyed the place, it breath taking. The mountains, it was rejuvenating.
