Beautiful cottage in a stunning area - warm and cosy with a log burner and underfloor heating

5 of 5
An ideal place to relax and unwind - warm, cosy and welcoming. Ideal for getting away from it all and the owner was so helpful in every way. It is ideal for families with young children with lots of games and books in house for youngsters to keep them amused as is it ideal for couples looking to escape and relax - can't wait to return

Quiet family break in a homely delightful property

5 of 5
Great communications throughout. Inny Glade has a lovely homely feel. We're a family of four - we all loved the place. Contains everything needed, nice quiet location yet close for attractions, coast, etc. Unreservedly recommended. No hesitation in booking again. Tennis court close by and beautiful stream. Parking easy. What more can we say! Ten out of ten.
