Accomodation was good, all the facilities you could want, and enough space. Equally not too 'out-of-place' modern so that we were nervous of the kids ruining something. A sprawling area of safe places to play, walk, investigate. Adventure walks, zip wire and tunnel, peaceful views, games room... so many things to do without leaving we are going back this year. highlight for the kids was collecting eggs and feeding animals with Farmer Dave - also pony rides on tuesday. Dave gives so much time every morning to the children staying that I don't know how they fit in running the place. It was surprising just how many families were hidden away on the site, as at no point did you feel over looked or squeezed in with other families. Nice layout and landscaping helped. My first thought was 'pricey' when my wife suggested going, but worth every penny - the extras are worth the additional £100 over some other properties we have stayed in down here. Solar heated swimming pool is lovely too, internet PC available near reception, and wireless signal over a short range if you have your laptop, also a local company can deliver frozen (very tasty) meals at a reasonable price. Can have them pre-ordered and in your freezer, or select from the reception freezer as and when.
Oh, I forgot that one of the barns is converted into a small soft play area and treadmills for adults for those wet days when you need 20mins for the kids to let off steam - most places would have turned this barn into a large 8 person accomodation to make extra cash - but not Bosinver. If you are visiting the area with family, this is your only choice of accomodation, and we've stayed in quite a few.
