"Best Detoxing Getaway!!" We were delighted by how quite, private, clean and perfect this cottage and it’s surround are. We feel completely relaxed and the kids loved it too. Lovely host and we are already planning our next stay here. Highly Recommended.



Highly recommend this beautiful serene spot...especially for couples. thank you Tanya. it's my favourite holiday spot.



Would recommend this gorgeous cottage to anyone looking for a real escape. Homely touches, wonderful hospitality, breathtaking scenery and total serenity. We’ll be back! Thank you Tanya!



"Well worth the visit - highly recommended" Our stay at Observatory View Cottage was out of this world. The cottage is well equipped and beautifully situated. The Nabiac Hotel is a must for dinner, fantastic fare if you can drag yourself away from the ambience of the cottage. The Greenhouse Cafe is also worth a visit for breakfast. Our host, Tanya, was friendly and attentive with all booking details and instructions provided. A delightful stay for anyone looking for a romantic and peaceful getaway.
