“A group of 16 of us stayed here for a long weekend away.”
We had a great time in the house (hardly left it the whole time!) and the facilities were great. The dining room was particularly appreciated, since we could all fit around the square table and see each other - much more sociable than a long table. The kitchen area is lovely and the cooking facilities were about right for 16 people. We used the pool room a lot and spent time chilling out in the back living room - good to have a TV in there to watch the rugby! The bedrooms are all really nice, some are smaller than others (as stated on the website), but there are plenty of bathrooms available for those rooms without an en suite. As expected from a very remote house, there was no sign of any phone signal or 3G, and while the house has wifi, it only works in some of the rooms. The housekeeper was very friendly and helpful, we were allowed to arrive earlier than the original check-in time, and she even brought us more toilet roll when we ran out! Perhaps it should be emphasised that guests should bring their own toilet roll and handwash etc. - some self catering holiday homes provide these things, so it would be best to clarify this before arriving. We were provided with some toilet roll but ran out after a few days, and the house is very remote, so we would have struggled to go to a shop to get more as it was snowing while we were there. Our only other comments would be that we feel that there should be a warning on the website about the hunting decor. While you can see some of this in the photos, it is quite prominent when you are in the house and definitely not to everyone's taste - we were quite shocked by a few of the photos. Other than that, we had a great time! Great place to come to get away from it all and spend time with friends and family.
