We enjoyed our stay at Heather Bleat very much! The Cottage was excellent, very well equipped and we really felt like home. The Mair Family gave us a warm welcome and Jimmy gave us a Landrovertrip around the farm that was really interesting.
(Even a calf was named after our daughter "Emma"!).
We would always book this cottage again!!!!
Thank you Hilary, Jimmy and the boys!
