          This was far by the best place we stayed at in whole Iceland. The cottages are great! You have everything you need, a comfortable bed, quiet, and a tremendous view. Can´t wait to stay there again. Do not forget to plunge into the hot tub!

          Hi, we are visiting Mousehole in April and wondered if you have any Gluten Free options at Jessie's Dairy? I'm especially interested in Gluten Free cornish pasties! This will be my first visit to Cornwall since being diagnosed with Coeliac disease so I don't want to miss out on my usual Cornish treats :-)

          Hello. We are looking for a place to stay on July 20th this summer. We are three adults and two kids (10 and 12), and plan to do some light hiking in Landmannalaugur on July 20 and 21st. Is your place close enough to drive back and forth easily? What type of accommodations do you have that would be big enough for a party of five (one married couple, one father-in-law, and our kids)?
