“In a word... Fabulous!”
Reviewed June 26, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

A lovely, spacious, well equipped cottage with plenty of outside space enough for us all to eat outside (there were 6 adults and 2 children under 4) ...and absorb the wonderful views over the countryside to the sea.

We all had a lovely time - enough bathrooms for us all, without arguments, and space to move about comfortably. Quite literally absolutely everything you will need, and good quality at that!

The only criticism, and this is only very minor, is that the fridge (with only a small ice-box and no freezer) is really not big enough for the number of people staying in the cottage.

Thank you Lynn for looking after us so well.

Dear Paula and family
Thank you for choosing The Barn at Glenturk I am pleased you enjoyed your stay. There was a freezer in the drying/store room and I must remember to let guests know, in the future, that it is there for their use.
I hope you will consider us again if you are in this area.
Kindest regards
Lynn Allan

person found this review helpful

Our experience of Glenturk was excellent from booking to leaving. The owner was very friendly and easy to deal with. Lovely to be welcomed with fresh flowers, a bottle of wine and shortbread. The cottage was very well appointed and very clean throughout. Beautiful views too. The location was great with lots to see and do in the surrounding area. No complaints at all. We were blessed wi beautiful weather also.

“Lovely cottage with great views”
Reviewed August 26, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed here in August with my 3 children ages 17, 13, 10 plus my elderly father who is 85. Lovely cottage with amazing views. Plenty of space for us all and great to have 3 bathrooms. It is a working cattle farm, kids enjoyed wandering around seeing the cattle and the Bulls. They managed to spot some frogs and rabbits as well. Great location and close to many attractions, plus the scenery is amazing. We have been lucky with the weather so far, nice to wake up and sit out on the patio with a cuppa!! It is near to the main road but it isn't that busy so not too much of a distraction. The owners are lovely, very friendly and helpful. Left us a bottle of wine and flowers to welcome us which was a nice touch. Having a washing machine was great with such a large family. Would definitely consider staying here again.
