    Made enjoyable...

    The location of the cottage was magical. The house was in the middle of breathtaking landscapes but yet had the comfort of a house in the city. It was very clean, very warm, comfy and offered a good library with information about the surrounding areas. I would definitely like to go back to High Lidmoor some day.
