The Cottage was just perfect in everyway. cosy - clean, well furnished, ideally situated, to be close enough to Ayre yet just outside by 4 miles enough to escape to the country feel. The neighbouring cottage breeds dogs, yet you would have no idea, they are never heard day or night - the couple that live there are so friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them when I needed some thread. The owner of this cottage was also extremely friendly and helpful. always contactable and helpful. a real pleasure. Thoroughly added to the pleasure of staying here and the stress of the wedding taken away. thoroughly recommend this cottage as a real gem in the heart of Ayre.

We rented it for my family to get together for one of my sons wedding, so with family flying back from all over the world and an open house for friends and family to meet each other before the big day. June had left little extras and fresh flowers to make us welcome and was in contact if there was a query. I would recommend this property to anyone, it was fabulous.
