    Amazing location and relaxing place to stay!

    Had a great time staying at the cottage, well equiped and cosy on the cold winter nights. Great facilities and location, would definitely recommend to others. The only thing is that the light over the stove didn't work which made cooking a little harder other then that an awesome stay.

    Lovely place to stay!

    We stayed at Cooke Cottage for 3 days and throughly enjoyed our time. The beds were super comfy and the overhead fans and air con great. The kitchen has every modern appliance you can think of and the bathroom is gorgeous with a rain shower. Seperate toilet was handy too. As long as you can do without internet this is the perfect place to unwind!
