The most beautiful place ever ever...............

  • 5 of 5

I dont have enough words to describe this beautiful place. If you want to relax, enjoy great views, and lovely comfy beds this is the place for you. this sounds so underwhelming, but honestly it is more than just a cottage. Its atmosphere is so wonderful. In the cottage there is everything you could ever want. The BBQ was lovely and just sitting on the grass watching the seals play was amazing. The Co-Op down the road is so friendly and they have everything you could want. The Castle and gardens are a must. This cottage is so special, I dont think it could be beaten. We will remember it for ever - its our 42nd holiday cottage and the best we have ever had. Thank you Kate xxx

Beautiful cottage with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a lovely stay. The property was comfortable, well maintained, and had plenty of amenities. We really enjoyed how secluded it was. The only issue we experienced was that there was no toilet paper when we arrived, but we were able to go out and buy some the next day.

Stayed here for a week in November and had a wonderful break. Amazing weather. Fantastic cottage with great facilities. Cosy and peaceful with beautiful views from conservatory, could have sat there all day. Loved going to the beach and up into the hills with our dogs. Would definitely recomend and hope to return.

...einfach herrlich...

  • 5 of 5

Ein absoluter Traum...wir war mehr als begeistert.

Zum angeln (Dorsch, etc.) benötigt man schon ein kleines Boot, welches man am fast nahen Campingplatz anmieten kann. NAchteil hier war, dass der Bootsverleih nur am Wochenende und an den Wochenendtagen gebucht werden kann.

Direkt vor dem Haus kann man zwar auch fischen, aber man benötigt schon eine Brandungsrute, um weit heraus zu kommen, da der vordere, erste 20 Meter Bereich recht lange flach abfällt.

Zum Fliegenfischen benötigt man eine extra Erlaubnis von Lord / Duke / Earl, u die zahlreichen Flüsse befischen zu können.

Das Aus ist jedenfalls bestens ausgestattet und gemütlich. Ich schwelge jetzt noch von den ersten Stunden am Morgen; bewaffnet mit einem heißen Kaffes sitzend im Wintergarten, um die Ruhe und Stille des Sees zu genießen, mit seinen vorbei ziehenden Vögeln und im Wasser tummelnde Robbe...

Just wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

All the communication with the owner of the property was pleasant, timely and very helpful. It advised very accurate directions to the cottage, and information about what to see and do in the surrounding areas. We found this invaluable.

We arrived at the cottage and it was beautiful, clean and like home from home.

Everything in the cottage worked as it should. Everything was supplied that we needed for our holiday.

The beds were firm but comfortable. The whole cottage was cosy, and the cooking facilities were good. Large fridge and freezer was useful.

The view from the cottage is just gorgeous. We even had a sighting of the Northern Lights!!!!

It was a very relaxing break in a lovely place.

Thank you!!!!
