“Beautiful home with everything we needed. ”

We stayed here for the weekend with our 2 year old. We absolutely loved it. The house was spotless with everything we needed Sky TV wifi towels etc. the house is stunning and more like a home than a rental which makes it so much more enjoyable.Kids toys were a bonus and our wee boy loved the garden. There are lots to do near by to keep kids entertained. We will definetly be back.

“Beautiful Holiday Home with many extras.”

We stayed in " The Byre" for a 4 night mid week stay 26th -30th May. Our party were my husband and I and our daughter, son-in law and 2 grandchildren aged 4 and 10 years.
When we entered the cottage we were delighted at the specious very high quality of the furniture and fabric and the extremely well equipped high end kitchen. The whole house was very tastefully furnished with lots of space in every room.
Outside my grandchildren loved playing in the garden and the summerhouse. The views were super, the setting quiet and peaceful and it was nice to enjoy a glass of wine in the summerhouse.
We had a wonderful quality family few days, the weather was mixed with some rain however this did not spoil our break. We enjoyed several of the local tourist attractions with the 2 favourites being the Coco Chocolate Factory, and the Red kite feeding station which is very close by. This is the nicest holiday home we have ever had the pleasure to stay in and would recommend especially good for families too.
