We had a fantastic time at the old kirkstead. We thought we had gone wrong when we had to drive through the farm to get to the place. But the views were superb. Being surrounded by nothing but fields and hills really made the place something special.
The house is really well done. Everything looked immaculate and the little touches when we arrived make such a difference. The place really is excellent.
The lack of internet was very refreshing. Enough signal for phone calls for emergencies. But no internet. Pure bliss.
My daughter loved going down to the lake (note it is a good walk with little ones to get there so we took the car). The lake was just awesome.
The local pub is excellent. Great food and great service.
We really enjoyed our 10 days here. Only disappointing thing was going home.
The cottage is cosy and well equipped. Home from home withthin a great location for exploring. The grounds outside were substantial with a lovely decked and seating area looking over to the burn. Within easy travelling distance there are plenty of attractions to keep you busy- yet once back in the cottage overlooking the Minto hills and corn field = totally relaxing. The views are sublime from the cottage it must be said.
All the rooms are clean and very inviting. The ensuite is a good feature set away from the family bathroom.
I think the only thing that might be missed in cooler months in inclement weather would be a tumble dryer- however there is the very warm boiler/tank cupboard in the kitchen with drying rails.
10/10 cottage & venue.
Would definatetly return - well done to ALL.
