    “Great stay with lovely hosts at the Dolly Waggon.”

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Dolly Waggon. Amanda, our host, was very welcoming and friendly and was always available to help out with anything we needed. The location is great - just fifteen minutes walk to the lake and less than ten minutes to some lovely little cafes and pubs. I should also mention the delicious breakfast we were spoilt with every morning... yum! Highly recommended, and we would stay again.
