    “Lakeside Cottage is an outstanding property in an ideal location right beside Cavetown Lake.”

    Firstly, it is spotless and there is absolutely everything you need. Irene had also left us the most generous welcome basket with wine, crackers, crisps etc. Our week here was ideal, totally relaxed and cosy evenings reading by the warmth of a log burning stove. We will definitely be back. Thank you Irene. Davy and Debbie
