What else can I possibly say that hasn't already been said? We spent two nights in the haven, the name is very, very appropriate. After spending a month travelling Australia, my partner greeted me from the airport and whisked me straight to the birdsong cottage. After living in shabby hostels and a 24 hour flight, this place was like a... More

From the moment we were welcomed so warmly by Richard and Sandra to when we left we felt like we were cocooned in our own little world.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were warmly welcomed by the owners and every detail had been thought through in this beautifully situated B+B. We would quite happily recommend it to everybody we know. You must simply book the room with the hot tub on the outside balcony.

We stayed in the Haven room at Birdsong Cottage on a Saturday night as a relaxing getaway.
