Michelle and Jim were wonderful hosts! Very cool couple to talk to. They will give you tips about the area and other parts of the island. The cottage was beautiful and clean inside and the views outside were amazing! I hope the rest of our stays are this wonderful.

This little belt cottage is on a wide open windswept plain with gorgeous mountain views all round! Feed the sheep and enjoy the pristine cottage and it's beautiful night sky! Michelle shared eggs from her chickens which were delicious! A perfectly lovely stay!
