    “This is a perfect holiday venue; ...”

    This is a perfect holiday venue; both the simple but tastefully appointed house and the situation, with its views and proximity to even more spectacular scenery and wildlife. It isn't a cheap property but we would all have loved to stay for another week. The owners have created a comfortable, scandi-feeling house that was a pleasure to return to at the end of the day. Efficient wood burner, loads of hot water in a strong shower, big white towels and clean white bedding are right up our alley ...

    This is a perfect holiday venue; both the simple but tastefully appointed house and the situation, with its views and proximity to even more spectacular scenery and wildlife. It isn't a cheap property but we would all have loved to stay for another week. The owners have created a comfortable, scandi-feeling house that was a pleasure to return to at the end of the day. Efficient wood burner, loads of hot water in a strong shower, big white towels and clean white bedding are right up our alley! The couple of suggestions that I had -a lamp or two for ambience and late evening jigsaw-puzzling, and a non stick pan for scrambled eggs- I was told would be acted upon. (The quirky microwave was also an entertainment!) There is a delightful 'Coffee Bothy' plus photography gallery at the end of the road for general items and deliciously warm bread and croissants in the morning. Bliss. Fight to stay here...
