“Stunning, relaxing home from home”
Reviewed July 8, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Owners very friendly and extremely helpful. Fabulous welcome pack on arrival. House perfect, full equipped with everything you need. High quality furnishings through out. Plenty to do rain or shine. Hot tub was great to relax in after a day of walking. House situated in an ideal occasion. Definitely should be rated 5 stars.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed July 1, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This little cottage has recently been totally refurbished. The standard of workmanship and finish are amongst the highest I have seen. Technology features througout the cottage with control of sound, vision and more by wifi or remote control. The cottage is provided with all you need and all you might wish for in the kitchen, whilst copious towels and a fluffy robe for every bedspace make the outdoor hot tub a must! I can't even begin to list the items that the owners have provided but suffice to say you should find that all you need to take is yourself and the family. A great cottage with very friendly owners.

“Extremely comfortable cottage”
Reviewed June 12, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The cottage is located in a totally quiet street about 2 minutes walk from small harbour. It has all the modern gizmo's you would want inside and the beds are so comfortable. Owners Wullie and Alison are so approachable and nothing is too much bother - even had a phone call from Wullie, who was offshore at the time, about TV controls. All in all a great place to stay.

“Exceptional”
Reviewed March 4, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

What an incredible house. We wanted a weekend away for 4 friends and had looked for a hot tub too. The location is beautiful and the house is stunning. Wonderfully decorated and everything you could want/need. The decor and facilities are impeccable and the welcome pack is unbelievable. Absolutely wonderful and I can wait to recommend it to friends. Thank you so much; we'll be back!

“Fandabidozi!!!”
Reviewed February 26, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Failte by name and definitely Failte by nature! Amazing cottage in the most gorgeous coastal area - we were a party of 3 adults and 3 teenagers and this cottage ticked everyone's boxes. The owners could not have been more friendly and welcoming, and their welcome pack was the best we have ever had (and we have stayed in many lovely cottages over the years.) The hot tub was a bonus and we would all definitely, absolutely stay again!
