Lovely to move around freely. Pity the animals seemed a bit skittish. All very peaceful with terrific mountain backdrops.

Absolutely loved walking the trails in the nature reserve. The free roaming wild life are lovely. The cottages have everything we needed and close enough to amenities in town. We'll definitely be back some day.
