We rented Seaforth to celebrate, as a family, my husbands 70th birthday....it was perfect. Our jaws dropped as we entered the house; everything was perfect. Plenty of space for 7 adults, 2 children, I dog. The games room kept us entertained in the evenings; the walls are probably still ringing with laughter. The only downside was leaving.....but weRead more will be back!! Hide

The cottage was a joy to be in and all 6 adults were impressed with the whole set up, we wanted for nothing from the fully equipped kitchen and utility room down to the games room.
