Fantastic property in beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my family, 5 adults, two children and two dogs (outdoor dogs who slept in utility area). It comfortably sleeps 10 people. We were very warmly welcomed by Marian the owner who had left home baked brown bread for us, milk, tea, coffee, butter, biscuits and marmalade, this was a lovely gesture and helped us settle in quickly. The house has plenty of room and a great garden for children and dogs, it's up a hill and well off the road so Its very safe. The house has a very well equipped kitchen which was great when we wished to cook family meals, breakfast etc, there was nothing more that we needed, it was very much a home away from home. We used the barbecue also which was provided, it was clean and worked with no difficulty. we also lit the open fire at night in the living room which was nice and cosy. The house was very clean, plenty of towels, toilet paper, hand wash, dishwasher tablets and washing powder. The area is beautiful and you are a short drive to many beautiful locations. Whilst it is outside the village it's only a short drive, I wouldn't recommend walking as the road into the village is quite narrow with little walking room, however there are local taxis to accommodate if you want to have a few drinks in the local bar. Highly recommend hillcrest and will do to all my family and friends! Would not hesitate to stay here again if we are back in the area!
