  • "A really unusual place sensitively restored."

    We really enjoyed our stay here in a very peaceful place. Very clean, easy key collection and Iain was very friendly and helpful regarding the property and surrounding area. We imagine it would be particularly nice in winter with the wood burner on but was a little too warm for us to light up. Would definitely stay again.

    Hi Alastair, thank you so much for the review I’m really glad you enjoyed and a pleasure to meet you. Thanks Iain Property Owner
