A very cozy cottage in a beatiful, private place with a view on the Bay. We spent a week there and truly enjoyed the relaxed environment and great hospitality of Jenny and Peter. The breakfast they have prepared and served was delicious and different every day. Tasty fruits, bread, home baked scones, mediterrean specialties, freshly harvested honey and more, a real treat. We would stay at the Plum Tree Cottage anytime again. Thank you for having us!

Our family of three really enjoyed our stay at Plum Tree Cottage. The cottage had a lovely view from the deck and the cottage was just a cosy place to be. We paddled around the bay on the dinghy and kayaks and fished from the lawn down the front of the property. The breakfasts made by the owners were amazing. It was an easy short drive to Russell and the great family beaches in the area. All in all a very relaxing holiday.
