The cottage is beautiful, and so well appointed! We wanted for nothing. The host, Yvonne, had left lots of goodies for us and everything we needed was provided in a welcome pack. We had a couple of special requests and had prompt and helpful replies from the host as soon as we got in touch. I can't recommend this property highly enough. Belgian and Canadian friends who stayed with us are away home to spread the word about this place. Book it...you won't regret it!

It fitted the bill perfectly! The house is just lovely and cozy, with plenty of room to gather all together, or to give everyone a bit of individual space too! The kids loved the TV 'chill out' zone giving the adults time to relax together. All the rooms were beautifully set out, with everything you could need and the underfloor heating meant we were kept cozy even while the wind howled outside! There are lots of wee walks around the property and the youngest kids enjoyed 'exploring ' the woods. The owner was also very friendly and helpful, replying to emails quickly before our arrival, and giving us the grand tour so we could get our bearings. We felt right at home here and we would recommend this as the perfect place for a large family gathering. I would definitely book again next time we're all together!
