                                                              I booked Yellowcraig House for my best friends hen do, after seeing such great reviews, and we were not disappointed! The house is outstanding, and Eric could not be more friendly and accommodating. He answered all my questions, and I had quite a lot! He recommend a local taxi firm, a spa, and a place to eat, all of which provided fantastic service. Thank you Eric for making a bride to be, and her 14 hens very happy!

                                                              Four and half years ago we had my hen here and now we have just had my sister's hen in this phenomenal house! 17 ladies- we all had an absolute ball! Before entry we all went to Fletcher's Spa which is outstanding and then we were warmly welcomed by Eric who showed us around. So much space for dining, wining and playing games. Bedrooms and bathrooms are high quality and downstairs living areas are fabulous. Stunning weather which meant we were able to use the gorgeous garden for yoga in the morning followed by a beach walk which is so close. Highly recommend this house and location to anyone. Only problem is...you won't want to leave! :-)

                                                              The perfect location for a golf trip to the area

                                                              We spent a week at the Yellowcraig loft with another couple on a golf vacation. The loft was in a perfect location with easy access to many of the best courses we have played. The loft was very comfortable for two couples and was very well appointed. Heather and Eric were very accommodating and provided many suggestions for restaurants, golf and local area attractions. We would definitely return.

                                                              I had my hen weekend at yellowcraig house and it was amazing. The location of the house is fantastic and Eric and Heather couldn't have made us feel more welcome. I would highly recommend this for anyone looking for a beautiful house to spend time with family and friends. We had a BBQ on the Saturday in the glorious garden and everyone said the setting had the wow factor. Many thanks, would love to come back again - Laura
