    Guest Reviews

    A wonderful weekend had with friends - highly recommend a stay at Cornerstone Cottage!

    We were blown away by the beauty of the setting and
    felt instantly welcomed by all the comforts and thoughtful provisions from Vanessa and Tim.
    The welcome hamper with fizz, jam and salad dressing was a real treat and
    we were delighted to find coffee pods, bbq coals and all.
