A perfect place to celebrate / relax with friends.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this house. We booked a Hen Party for a group of 20 and had the best time. The house was beautifully furnished, comfortable and spotless clean. Considering the size of the group we never felt cramped as the indoor and outdoor space sort of interconnected so couldn't have been more perfect.

The open plan kitchen/living diner was ideal for relaxing, cooking and serving drinks all at the same time!

The views from the patio were gorgeous and the location meant we could really let our hair down without upsetting any nearby neighbours.

Hen party

  • 4 of 5

A group of 16 girls stayed at this beautiful cottage. The cottage is stunning and was very very clean. I would highly recommend this to anybody. The photos doesn't do the cottage justice the furniture and the views are amazing.. I will be returning in the near future. We all had a great time especially in the hot tub 😃.

Beautiful property and a most perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Booked the house for a hen weekend and we had such a wonderful time. The property is absolutely beautiful and its secluded location meant that we knew we weren't going to be upsetting any neighbours. The house was spotless and there were lovely touches here and there to make it feel very homely. Such a good find!

What a find !

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house for a family birhday celebration and were more than happy with our choice .The house is huge and in a great location with gorgeous views and extensive outdoor space Being centrally located within the country it was very easy for all members of our group to get to

The house was stylish and comgortable and very clean with a huge open plan kitchen /diner which made a fabulouse space for us all to socialise .

The owners were at the property to show us round and were very friendly and helpful

They had clearly made a huge effort in order for us to enjoy our stay

I agree with the previous review ,the pictures dont do the house justice.We are hoping to visit again soon
