"When I booked at Traveling Tortoise, I didn't really know what to expect. And what a wonderful surprise I had. I asked for the The Hares Lair cottage on impulse not knowing there was a story behind the name but the owner made sure that I know all about the story and that made the cottage so much more special. The place deserves the name Eco retreat because the building materials mostly come from nature. The inside is very spacious, clean and equipped with everything necessary. The owner was friendly and very helpful. The silence and the stars at night was at the end the so called "cherry on the cake". Thank you so much, Jeff for everything. I sincerely hope there will be a Next Time for me in which case I will definitely stay for a few days and not just for a night ."
