The property was lovely, a great place for friends to get together.
Ms Eaves, Aberdeen, March 2013
A beautiful spacious property. Ideal for large groups as there is loads of space to either spend time together or retire to somewhere more peaceful. In my view, it's perfect for holiday lets. Excellent wifi signal, kitchen really well equipped and loads of items were left such as tea, coffee, spices etc. I would definitely recommend this property and would love to come back.

The house was great. The images on the internet really did not do it justice so much bigger than it appeared.
Ms Woodward, Bristol, January 2013
The cottage was superb and suited our needs perfectly. It had everything we needed and we will be booking it again next year.
