About the neighbourhood
The area around alder cottage is off the beaten track. It is situated on part of Bluebell Organic farm and visitors might be lucky to see the sheep grazing happily in the fields beside the house. There is a nice lawn to relax and a patio with table and chairs for the sunny days with a ping pong table under a roof for the rainy ones. The Bonet river near by is ideal for salmon fishing
