I loved that it is equipped with everything you need for a great holiday. The twin beds needs new mattresses.

We enjoyed a lovely weekend here. We found everything we needed. The location was peaceful but close enough to town and we saw a variety of birds in the syringa tree. We would definitely try to come here again on future trips.

Very peaceful. Accommodation was modest. Alan the host made us feel very welcome. Well equipped and location very central.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Syringa Tree Cottage. The weather was not that great and it was freezing so we really appreciated the heater an the electric blankets! Sitting on the deck was lovely and peaceful. We really loved our stay there and would recommend it.
