One of our favourite TripAdvisor Reviews – and yes  – we do feel proud!!

“Brilliant experience!”
Reviewed 30 January 2014 

 I have nothing more to add to all these great reviews. This was one of the best tourist experiences I’ve had in my travels around the world (and I’ve had a lot!). All of our party of 6 were so glad to have made the morning trip to the Cascade Brewery car park to take part in this dramatisation.

Please book ahead! Even though we are quieter now our low season is here, it is always wise to book ahead especially if you are coming to Louisa’s Walk on a Saturday!

Also, our Holiday Cottage 19 Blue is proving very popular.  It is set up to be completely self-contained for a couple.  If you’re looking for somewhere to stay that’s a little different -  19 Blue is waiting for you!!!
