Magic Cottage is most wonderful retreat for that romantic getaway.Sally wondered where and questioned where we were going.

When we arrived and were met ay Anna all her fears melted away . Most had disappeared when she saw the view as we drove in .
The cottage is designed for romance. The hamper that Anna provided was wickedly generous.

We cant wait to get back.
