  • "Beautiful property with everything you need for a very comfortable holiday."

    Up a very steep hill so not suitable for anyone with mobility issues unless you have a car.

  • "We (four adults) stayed here for four nights in early September during a period of remarkably warm weather."

    The house is spacious and comfortable, and the setting is quiet and secluded. The owners were very helpful with questions we had, e.g., about heating and hot water. The property is well maintained, appliances are new, and the kitchen is well equipped - even the knives were sharp! The house has a separate laundry room with a washer and drier which I think would be useful to mention more in the write up - it's really good to be able to close the door on all that. As we travelled from overseas, the need to bring oven mitts, buy toilet paper, etc. was not that convenient. I would rather pay a little more and have more supplies, like extra towels, provided but I understand that isn't for everyone. The one thing that I would have found helpful (and again this may be personal preference) would be manuals for some of the appliances, e.g., specifics on how to override the hot water setting on the wall unit. We worked out how to use the induction stove, but could not work out how to empty the condenser on the tumble drier (it was the last day so I didn't ask). I know we can all look things like that up online but on vacation I don't really want to look for the model number on the drier etc. These may all be obvious to the modern British family! But this did not mar our enjoyment of the property - it was top notch and I would stay there again.

  • "First of all I want to say that this property is in a fantastic location."

    We had a great time as a family and the owners were always on hand, especially when we got lost. The only issues were the internet, which went down quite a few times, the house was not particularly clean when we arrived, we had to go and buy cleaning products and do ourselves. Also, the listing never mentioned that, although Mullingar does not accept dogs, the cabin in the garden does, and whenever we left the doors open we had a dog which was staying in the cabin, come into our property, which is not great especially when there were people in our party who are allergic to dogs, and a child who is scared of them. There is no separation from the cabin in the garden which was a disappointment really as they should each have separate gardens or just be listed as 1 home.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased you enjoyed the fantastic location and that you had a great time. The property is fitted with a high-spec mesh Wi-Fi system throughout. We did notice one of the routers was unplugged which may explain the temporary Wi-Fi issue you reported. We are sorry to hear the cleanliness did not meet your expectations; We have discussed this in detail with our cleaning team to reinforce our high expectations in this regard. The property has a garden shared with the other property Backstage as is described in the property listing. Re the dogs staying with guests at the other property, we recognise the point you raise and are currently reviewing the suitability of that property for dogs given the proximity to Mullingar. Thanks again for taking the time to get in touch. Property Owner

  • "This is a very high quality property."

    It is very spacious, very comfortable beds and sofas and the nicely presented. It is close to town , just a short walk down the hill. I would also recommend The Fern Cottage restaurant in Pitlochry, we had a fabulous meal, and very friendly staff.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are delighted you had an enjoyable stay and we look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed the spaciousness of the cottage, and the lovely setting, so peaceful."

    We had one or two issues within the kitchen area, but after contact with the owners, we hope these will be dealt with in a timely manner. Perfect for touring the surrounding areas, and so close to the centre of Pitlochry which was a bonus for us.

    Thank you for your feedback. Great to see you enjoyed your stay in this peaceful setting. Property Owner
