I stayed here last year at the very end of the season with 25 teenagers from England. The welcome was warm, helpful, the place was spotless and so cosy. Its the best venue I have used for groups in over 20 years of youth work residentials. Absolutely first rate.

As soon as I can, i will be bring my family over and sampling the cottages.

I had the very spacious and spotlessly clean, well equipped cottage with lots of natural light.
Everything about the place is a credit to the owners. i arrived late - the heating is on and i check in the next morning; i am on my own and the rate is reduced; my suitcase doesnt arrive and i am offered clothes to wear! To cap it all I receive a set of cuff links I had left behind in the post. Beautiful location also. Please keep up the good work and I will be back.

Stayed here for one night after an event in Wilkinstown. The hostel was great, really clean, nice rooms, comfortable. Slept really well. There was a large group of us, so the games room was nice to hang out in.

Stayed there for just the one night. The facilities were clean and efficient, and the homely look certainly added to the night. Having just come from our Intervarsity competition, it was nice that we could split up into those who were going to bed, and those who would stay up longer. The rec room was quite effective for the latter party, though I was disappointed when it turned out the "Bop-It!" toy was broken. Please get a new one. Otherwise, five stars all round!

Stayed with a large group after a sporting event nearby. The rooms were large, clean and beautiful. The amenities were brilliant and very modern. Woke up to a fantastic view of the mountains covered in fresh snow. Great stay.

This was a darling little cottage we stayed at for several nights.

Pros:
-Amazing location! Very close to many really neat historical sights
-Kitchen with basic utensils
-Living room separate from bedroom in the cottage
-Easy to find and good parking
-Right on site of a farm so you saw and heard the moos from darling black & white cows
-Nice little living room furnace kept us cosy (the regular furnaces didn't work but this little one in the living room was nice)
-Charm on the whole from the outside with bright paint and names for the rooms

Cons:
-Kitchen utensils weren't really clean
-had a pet-friendly feel with dog hair all over the rugs and floors, same feeling for the beds
-No comfortable couch
-No WiFi in the room (at least for our iPhones)
-Shower was like that at a swimming pool where you have to keep pushing the button and not completely hot.

Overall good deal in a great location, but didn't feel clean and had no WiFi.
