Dennis and Pauline have done a wonderful job adding this extension to their home, to the highest specification you can imagine. The photographs and descriptions of the property are spot on. Every room we found extremely spacious and it was a master stroke keeping it for two people. The kitchen area and the views from the front of the lounge are incredible. There is nothing you could want or need to improve the experience of staying in Glen Rowen. Although we only stayed for four days and the weather was a little unkind we thoroughly enjoyed our post Christmas stay. What a great start to 2017.
