Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect cottage so comfortable After staying at many places over the years this sweet little cottage was one of the best equipped places and made you feel at home. A lot of thought has been put into the presentation and making you feel comfortable. The kitchen was so well equipped everything I need was there and in good quality. Some places we have stayed at I have had to buy basic pots pans etc but here is fantastic. The Christmas decorations was a very special touch even my teenage daughter was very impressed with the place commenting on how nice the place was and easy walk to shops and main street. We look forward to staying again. The pretty garden and undercover bbq are are very relaxing. The only thing this property is missing is air conditioning but saying this our stay was very pleasant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and peaceful cottage We had a wonderful weekend at Ballantrae. Every comfort imaginable was provided, and the location was brilliant, being only a short walk to cafes and boutique shops. Would love to come back in winter when we can enjoy the open fire...
