“Fantastic restful time, neat clean well-appointed flat with great views”
Reviewed August 28, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The title says it all, really. I did write a longer review and post some pictures, but it never seemed to make it - and that's really the only downside, which is that the internet connection and mobile data networks are not reliable. Of course, that may not be what you go on holiday for!

Liked least: Not the owner's fault, of course, but the internet bandwith was poor / dodgy.

This was such a good place to stay, really high quality accommodation. The owners were very helpful. Had beautiful views out to see, and we enjoyed kayaking on the lake!

“Amazing family run place where nothing is too much hassle”
Reviewed May 31, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This place was amazing. The cottage was clean and well presented with a stunning view across their own private lake and out to sea. The owners were so helpful, nothing was too much trouble. From borrowing a tupper-ware to letting us use their kayaks on the lake and offering to do a Falconry session with us. Even when we left, one member of the groups' car wouldn't start and they came out to help get it started.

A lovely family run business at a great price. I'm already planning when I can next book in to come and stay!

Thanks for everything.

“Absolutely fantastic, totally completely recommended - go and stay there!”
Reviewed May 30, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

The setting is STUNNING, the cottage is gorgeous, the view is wonderful, the peace is awesome but what really made this visit for me (and us) was the kindness and hospitality of the owners. They couldn't do enough for us, and clearly really enjoyed looking after people. They absolutely made the visit!

I stayed here as part of a Hen Do Weekend for my friend. The view from the house was stunning and. We we extremely well looked after. Extra outside chairs were brought out to us, we were told about the animals and we even given the chance to kayak on the lake! The house was well furnished and filled with plenty of kitchen equipment and entertainment options. Am definitely going to try and return for a weekend get away with my other half. With the beach down the road and numerous attractions nearby why would anyone want to go anywhere else!
