    It is really spacious and very well equipped. The rooms are all extremely large and very comfortable. The house was absolutely spotless and despite the removal of some soft furnishings, this did not detract from overall comfort of the accommodation. The gardens were extensive and well maintained.

    Beds very comfortable and good dining and relaxing areas. Kitchen had lots of crockery and utensils but many mugs and glasses very old. BBQ was not clean and garden furniture old and dirty on arrival. Garden scruffy and in need of attention.

    There was lots of space and the beds were very comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped and very sociable for the cooks. There are loads of walks in the local area. We would love to come and stay again the future - it would be lovely in the winter. Just a few things that could be improved - The blue recycling bin was full upon our arrival so we had to bag our recycling for the week. A second blue bin would solve that issue. The garden furniture was looking a bit tired and the floor sweeper downstairs needed a new head. We had a great holiday, thank you so much!!

    The Glen hotel is easily walkable for a night cap and though the shop is further away it's a flat walk and very pleasant. Loads to do in the local area. We were 2 families with 2, 6 and 7 year old children and they had a ball. Feeding the reindeer was magical and Loch Morlich was so beautiful. On rainy days there are a couple of soft plays within easy driving distance but we were lucky so were outside most of the time. The Balavil hotel has a small indoor swimming pool which was great fun but it does get really busy so go early evening to avoid the hoards! The Highland Folk museum is huge and we went twice, and the Highland Wildlife park was a lovely jaunt too. The Landmark Centre in Carrbrige was a huge hit. Pricey to get in but it really is a whole day affair so that makes it worth the money. The house itself was tremendously well equipped; warm, cosy and really relaxing after a day out. The only downside was the downstairs twin bedroom was noisy if people moving about or having a shower upstairs.

    The main living room was lovely with massive luxurious couches and plenty of beans bags and things to get everyone sat down at the same time. There was good WiFi signal in the house and a good sized porch with plenty of room for our groups plethora of winter jackets and boots etc. The bedrooms were lovely, all of the adults commented on the quality and comfort of the mattresses on the beds. Another luxurious feature was the baths, they are enormous. The house was nice and warm despite the wintry conditions outside, the underfloor heating downstairs was great and the upstairs living room with the fire was nice and toasty in the evening. Overall it was probably one of the best self catering houses we have stayed at as a group over the years. Will recommend to friends and family.
