Just returned from our fifth visit to Bosinver, this time staying in Hillside. Like the last reviewers, we wondered if we had outgrown the resort or would be bored, but how wrong we were. I think that this was our best trip ever. Hillside was smaller than the other properties we have stayed in, but was quiet, cozy, and expertly cleaned. It also has a wonderful conservatory overlooking the meadow of happy horses, bunnies, and chickens, which was the venue for many glasses of wine after the children had gone to bed. By the end of the week, we had decided that Hillside is our new favourite, although we always say that at the end of a Bosinver trip. But the cottage is just the tip of the iceberg. There is just so much to do on site at Bosinver that we were utterly exhausted by the end of each day while finding that we hadn't gone anywhere ... Animal feeding, pony riding, playbarn, playground, trampoline, zip wire, games room, wild kids club, forest and farm hunts, and to top it all off, the beautiful new indoor swimming pool. This was one of our best holidays ever, and it is so wonderful after all of these years to see how confident the children are on the farm and in the forest. Pat, Dave, Helen, and Elaine do such a wonderful job. We've already booked for next year.
