“Lovely place, very clean and has everything you need.”
Reviewed January 3, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Stayed in cottage with my wife, 2 daughters and their husbands. Accommodation was really good and it had everything from a pool table to a vegetable peeler, everything. The only drawback was the bridge was closed due to a storm, that's Mother Nature for you. The cottage was nice and warm. So no complaints from me. Thanks to the owners.

Reviewed June 25, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Family of two adults and three teenage girls. The old byre was very spacious with everything you could possibly need and more!! Very tasteful decor and furniture was lovely and comfortable. The extra bathrooms were a huge bonus with three teens in the house! Huge kitchen with dining area that fit not only our family but also our family who live local to area making ten of us and we still had plenty of space. Fully fitted kitchen with dishwasher oven hob microwave fridge freezer all integrated complete with all utensils pans crockery you could need. Rooms were clean and beautifully kept. Beds were comfortable and so peaceful making for a fantastic nights sleep. Outside area right on the door step for outdoor eating or drinks. Beautiful grounds with spectacular views. Ponds with fish, beautiful gardens, a trampoline and games room for the kids and a wooden garden room to enjoy the views and take in the fresh country air. The hospitality of the owners was second to none made us feel very comfortable and very welcome and nothing was to much trouble. All linen was provided and we had a wonderful stay. We stayed for two nights but we hope to return for longer. Well worth a visit and great value for money highly recommend to anyone wanting to visit a beautiful part if the world. Thanks for having us can't wait to return!!
