“Fantastic cottage in idyllic setting”

We received a friendly, warm greeting from Shirley and John and then stepped into the cottage, and I could only say 'Wow"! With soft music playing in the background, we then discovered all the lovely little touches that made it extra special. From the generous welcome basket, to the teddy holding a good bottle of wine, it was like being on a treasure hunt of delights.
The cottage is cosy, bright and spotlessly clean. Very comfortably furnished, it had everything one could wish for and more. The gardens are spectacular with lots of 'rooms', each with its own surprises. We loved sitting in the tree house with a complimentary glass of wine and also, on a beautiful sunny day, sitting outside the summer house when the only sound to be heard was the birds singing.
There are lots of lovely walks from the cottage and we enjoyed the easy walk to the Curraughs where we were lucky enough to spot the wild wallabies, to our great excitement.
I cannot find the words to fully express how special we found the cottage and can honestly say it is the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in.

An amazing location in the peaceful countryside. The cottage was immaculately furnished with many homely features. A really memorable holiday.

Close Taggart made our stay on the Island a very memorable experience! We were made to feel very welcome and it was a home from home!
The gardens are a must to explore and there is something different around every corner! The tree house was a delight, as was the observation platform to veiw the stars! Orchards, ponds, wildlife, wonderfull walks all on the doorstep! We will visit Close Taggart again!
