Verified reviewexcellent

What a gem! We had the most magnificent stay at The French Cottage. Its location is magical with its beautiful surroundings. We just couldn't get enough of the cave. The cottage itself is tastefully decorated and appointed perfectly with absolutely everything you need, we didn't want for anything. Some of the beds are a little hard but that's the only thing I could fault. If you love to be in nature, this is the place to be. I definitely left a piece of my heart behind and I absolutely intend on returning.
