Loved our stay, will be coming back.

Lovely cottage in a delightful valley, we loved our stay. Additional benefit of bumping into John, Anne and family on our Sunday walk up the valley. A memorable afternoon/evening...!

5Sundawn Cottage Ireshopeburn

A lovely quaint cottage with heaps of history supplied by John. We loved the fire place, eggs and bacon. Having a bathroom up stairs was a bonus. A bedside table near the window side of the bed would have been handy. We loved the peace and the views and the Golden Lion must get a mention for their hospitality and great food.
