We loved crabapple cottage. It was a nice size for us with a warm friendly vibe.The position up the hill a bit was lovely for sun and views and meant it was a bit away from the busy main road.
It was a nice easy walk to the great local pub where we had 2 very good meals. - Andrew - August '15

This was our second visit to Crabapple Cottage and we were not disappointed.
The high standard of amenities and facilities was excellent. The property is very well maintained and very comfortable. We would definitely stay there again in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect little getaway We really enjoyed our stay at Crabapple Cottage. It was even better than described. The cottage is situated amongst a lot of greenery, an abundance of wild life in the area. Upon arrival we saw a rabbit hopping in the drive way and a kangaroo eating grass on the front lawn. The cottage was really well put together, even down to the cd collection! It's all about the details with this place. We'll definitely be coming back again and highly recommend for anyone wanting a little escape.
