Five of us stayed at Highwood and found it very spacious and comfortable. The house is situated in a quiet area with wonderful views which can be enjoyed from the balcony and decking.

The rooms are nicely decorated and the house is very clean.

The kitchen was a dream to cook in and contained every type of gadget, plate and glass imagineable. A lot of thought has gone into making sure that the house contains everything you would need for a holiday break. There are toys and jigsaws in the bedroom, plenty of books including those on places to visit, buckets and spades in the garage, games, videos............the list goes on.

I would definitely recommend this house, it was a pleasure to stay in.

“Excellent accommodation, brilliant views & great location”
Reviewed August 7, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

With grandparents, a 12yr old and a 9 month old in tow, Highwood was an excellent choice of accommodation. The house is very well equipped for everyone, grandparents had the ensuite double upstairs and my husband & I shared the 3 bedrooms downstairs with the children. My 9mnth old daughter had a room to herself directly opposite our room and our 12yr old had a twin room to himself - perfect!! The kitchen was immaculate and had everything we needed. The living room upstairs had a great TV & DVD player with a selection of films - which came in handy as the week we went away was torrential rain. The views from the kitchen, living room and downstairs double bedroom were fantastic.
The house is on a steep hill and generally you do need a car to get anywhere - unless you don't mind the narrow lanes and no footpaths.
Despite the weather, we had a great week. Would definitely recommend.

“Lovely home away from home”
Reviewed July 17, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

Highwood is a very well equipped house. Not just lots of kitchen appliances but also a nice selection of books, maps, cd's and dvd's. The house is comfortable and cosy and feels more like a home than a vacation residence. There's a small beach within walking distance (steep path!). No internet acces but in our case that contributed to a wonderfully relaxing family week.
