We cannot fault this whole experience, from the warm welcome at Carranross House, by Mary and her family, and not forgetting Roxy, and the breakfast that helped us through the day, to the warm comfortable room that was clean and bright, nice and big with a bathroom I would like in my own home! We definitely hope to visit again!

We were a group of 8 who had 2 twin rooms and a family room. Mary could not have been more accommodating. We had a late addition on our trip and she moved an extra twin bed into the family room which was still very roomy. We stayed for 2 nights in comfortable, CLEAN, rooms. The breakfasts were tasty. She... More
