    Like stepping into a second home

    From arrival the welcome note and booklet was excellent for information. It was of comfort to have the NT helpline at hand if needed. The cottage was like stepping into a second home and the attention to detail in the decor was excellent. The views from the cottage were outstanding and after reading the visitors book I agree that there should be no wifi. The furnishings were very comfortable, the beds and the sofas, an important factor for us. When we look for a property we look to see what type of furnishings it has as we never hire a house that has leather furnishings.

    Attractive and clean

    Very welcoming, attractive and clean. Caretaker very helpful in locating item left behind. Would definitely stay here again - wish I could afford to rent the cottage more frequently. Setting is just stunning. Have happy childhood memories of Whitepark Bay. Met my husband of 46 years within sight of the cottage.
