We'll be going back! Very well catered for by Paul and Chris, everything seems to have been thought of. The location is beautiful and a shame the weather turned cold because we enjoyed sitting and looking over the ponds. We did a few walks locally to see the red squirrels and birds. The cabin was very comfortable with a wood burner, large shower anRead mored plenty of electric heating. Lots of facilities too including smart TV, Alexa speaker and full kitchen. Thanks for a great mini break, John & Nat. Hide

We spent a week in this lovely little cabin by the water. Comfortable and cosy with everything you could possibly need, an excellent bed and the best shower we have ever had in a holiday home! Warm welcome and thoughtful touches made our stay perfect. Easy to travel around the island and lots of walks on the doorstep. Highly recommend a stay here.

Great location, ideal for a chilled holiday. Very peaceful and relaxing. Accommodation was very well appointed, well equipped and comfortable. The owners appeared to have thought of everything, no small detail was left to chance. Great place to stay if you are a dog owner.

Lovely accommodation, very clean and peaceful location. Loved the ducks coming up to the patio door and knocking on the glass with their beaks to say hello! Plenty of local walks too. Would definitely stay again.

A beautiful lodge in a stunning setting. You won't be disappointed if you book here. The location is well placed for a lot of the main tourist attractions as well as been far enough away to be in a quiet area. The hosts are welcoming and the lodge is spotless. The layout is well suited for dogs with a little lawn area for them to have space.
