    The Byre exceeded all that we possibly could of asked for. It was a last minute break that was booked with less than 24hr notice. Nethertheless we arrived to a warm welcome and a snug spotlessly clean cottage. The cottage had everything you could possibly want and more. Jackie and Trevor (along with Eddy the dog) are wonderful hosts who go above and beyond to make your stay perfect. The Byre is set in an ideal location and you can be in various towns (and counties) all within 30mins. There are many beautiful walks right from the door step, and a warm and welcoming pub approx 5min drive away. We couldn't fault ANYTHING and hope to return in the future. Many thanks Jackie and Trevor for a wonderful holiday.
