    “First of all an apology.”

    ... for not submitting feedback until now! ...

    ... for not submitting feedback until now! Fuschia Cottage is an absolutely perfect location for a relaxing holiday! It's central location means you can reach all the attractions 'The Ring' has to offer without rushing around and missing anything; we were able to savour lazy lie-ins, relaxed breakfasts and still spend the a good deal of the day indulging ourselves with long walks with the dogs and feeling overwhelmed with the stunning views that filled our eyes and hearts with wonder. Then bimbling 'home',normally being met by Ben & Laddie bounding towards us with a huge doggy grins. Bernie & Derry are the nicest couple you could hope to meet, full of warmth, cheer and they can have a rightful pride in the cottage for what it gives to those that stay there. Fuschia swallows you up with warmth and comfort, inviting you to relax and escape the rat-race of day to day life. So much that there was a tinge of regret when it was time to leave and we bade our farewells and drove away. Most holidays sometimes feel as if they are over as you leave a place, but this was one of those times that the feeling of utter relaxation stayed with us for days afterwards, even though we both where back at work within 48hrs. (My boss had to work hard to get the serene look off my face) Bernie mentioned that next year could be the last season that they will be renting Fuschia out, if that does turn out to be the case, we would heartily recommend that people take the opportunity to book the cottage and enjoy what so many others have enjoyed over the years. You will not be disappointed. Coral, Steve, Jazz & Todd
