  • "First class accommodation, excellent stables conversion, however the kitchen was missing a few items that would have been useful i."

    E. bottle opener/corkscrew sieve. Wifi would have been useful too but it's absence didn't spoil our holiday.

  • "The setting/grounds are just beautiful and the property itself charming."

    I’d read an article in a the Scotsman and local newspaper about the properties when they were launched and the use of local producers to leave a welcome box and fresh flowers. There wasn’t so much a single toilet roll, carton of milk or a sachet of tea or coffee. The cobwebs, abundance of hair in the shower tray and lack of WiFi (which was said to be available) were disappointing. No sieve or bottle opener, no spray to clean the surfaces ...... all little things but cause inconvenience. However, we would go again and would recommend to friends (maybe wouldn’t mention the bath Matt that was the most over washed, hard threadbare item I’d seen in a property). Mr Belcher could do better I’m sure. A little more care and love for the property would be great. The grounds outstanding though.
