“Absolutely picture perfect! Most comfortable beds we had in a month in Scotland and the entire place looks better than in the photos online. The accessibility aspect was perfect for my mum who uses a walker. I appreciated that they recycle. Amazing stay, can’t recommend it enough.”
“The host was very friendly and gave us lots of helpful information when we arrived. The property was clean and bright and was a lot bigger than we expected. The bedrooms all had en-suite toilet and shower all good quality. The scenery all round was fantastic. We enjoyed our stay.”
“Great property and location. I stayed at this property with my elderly parents and one of their friends. Two members of our party had mobility issues so the property was perfect for them. There were no steps to negotiate and the seat in one of the showers was a great addition. The view from the lounge window was wonderful across the farmland and hills beyond. The property was extremely clean and well equipped. Thomas and Fiona were great hosts. Very friendly and welcoming. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property.”
