We stayed in the 3 bedroom cottage. It was spacious, each bedroom had an ensuite. Very clean. Greeted on arrival by the resident dogs Jojo and Tiny who we loved! Ann was a great hostess and a very good cook. Cartron House is off the beaten track so days out would be best planned. Would visit again and recommend to... More

We stayed here with my family - three late teens - and our dog too! Cannot recommend this highly enough - as per previous reviews, plenty of space both in and outdoors. Breakfast is fantastic and sets you up for activities throughout the day: lots to do nearby, we went go karting and horse riding, archery and shooting with my... More

This is a lovely house, set in delightful grounds with elegant outside spaces and its own private country walk. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, the rooms comfortable, and the breakfasts to die for! If you're looking for peace and tranquillity, Cartron House is the perfect base. This is my second visit and the place just gets better.

We got there late and didn't feel... More

Come here and enjoy a lovely stay with lovely people - Ann is such a nice person and she created a wonderful place to spend some days off.

The next night I went out, and afterwards I wish I would have stayed in again! Ann went above and beyond to make me feel at home,... More
