It would be nice to actually have larger bath towels. We did go out and buy kitchen weighing scales as we do all our cooking from scratch. Thankyou for he positive feedback and we are glad that you were extremely happy with Strathmill House. We did have a set of red digital kitchen scales at the Housed but these seem to have disappeared and will be replaced shortly. Property Owner Reviewed by Greg5.0★Sep 2023 "The property was very spacious, clean and in a quiet location." It’s in an ideal spot for visiting surrounding areas. We had a lovely week and we all felt very relaxed. We were a party of seven and the house was ideal size for us. There are two reception rooms with two large sofas in each, which was great, allowing us privacy if we wanted it. Overall it we had a fantastic week away and would highly recommend this property.

Kind Regards Keith and Lindsay Property Owner Reviewed by Diane4.7★Aug 2023 "Fantastic property, ideal for what we required." The property was clean and well presented with all amenities that you would require. Communication was great and instructions to get the the property were clear and concise. I would highly recommend this property. Derek, Thankyou for the feedback and recommendation, it's much appreciated. Glad you found the directions easy to follow, as you know Strathmill is within easy walking distance of the centre of Keith but feels like it is in remote countryside. Kind Regards Keith and Lindsay. Property Owner Reviewed by Derek5.0★Aug 2023 "We had a lovely week in N East Scotland, using Strathmill House as our base for an energetic week of orienteering." One of our group enjoyed using the bath, but the others all preferred the shower, which had a constant supply of hot water. We made good use of both lounges - one for reading and relaxing and the other for sport-watching on the TV! The kitchen was also very well-equipped for cooking all our evening meals. Hi Jonathan, Thankyou for spending some time at Strathmill and we are glad you enjoyed it. Keith is a central location to explore the North East and there always seems to be something going on, although I have to confess I hadn't realised what a big deal orienteering was in the area. I imagine that it's only modesty that stopped you saying how well you done in the event? Hope to see you back next year. Best Wishes Keith and Lindsay Property Owner Reviewed by Jonathan5.0★Jul 2023 "Hi - good break at strathmill - suggest more detail as only 2 wcs ." .upstairs arrangement not good for anyone with mobility issues and one tv ..given price charged and compared to other holiday houses .. slightly over priced - but the family had a good week and welcome pack much appreciated - tk you Hi Carol, The title of your review suggests that you had a good break but more details should be included in the Sykes listing. I was concerned when I read this and therefore re-read the listing. I found that the items you mentioned are addressed on the front page of the listing. You are correct in saying that there is only one 55” Smart TV at Strathmill, this allows the second reception room for reading, cards, chatting etc and overall this seems to have met with approval. I am pleased that you and the family enjoyed your time at Strathmill House.
