“Great place to relax”
Reviewed 18 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We visited for 11 nights at the start of September hoping for a relaxing break. We sure got what we wanted.

The accommodation was perfect for the two of us and we felt at home as soon as we arrived. It was so clean as well.

The owners are on site and are exceptionally nice people.

I wouldn't hesitate recommending this place to anyone who like us just needed a get away from it all break.

“Return to paradise”
Reviewed 30 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We have just arrived home from our second holiday to this magical place ( it will definately not be our last visit). Once again everything was perfect. The Mountain family are a joy to know and a pleasure to spend time with. They go out of their way to provide everything you may need during your stay. The cottage is a delight, spotlessly clean and with everything you may require whilst self catering. The area is fantastic for people who love the outdoors, with beautiful forest walks and lovely lakes and scenery. It is a very special unspoilt region with lots of things to do. The property itself is very tranquil, with a lovely lake and unspoilt forests to wander through. it is a place where you can totally relax. You are made to feel very welcome from the moment you arrive. We will definately be returning next year.

“The perfect getaway!”

A very beautiful place to stay. Nestled in delightful woodlands a charming cottage by the most spectacular waterfall and river. A perfect spot to stay for those wanting to look around and explore the area. The cottage was warm and cosy and decorated/presented in a lovely way. The family were on hand but not intrusive and were so lovely and helpful. We definitely will go back and recommend it to others.

“Magical cottage”
Reviewed 8 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed 3 nights in this serene and beautiful spot, on our search around the area. The whole place was like a scene from Hansel and Gretel (without the witch bit) - a truly magical forest with a stream and a lake - I'm not sure you can get much more idyllic! The cottage was spotlessly clean, with the most incredible views and the sound of the stream rushing past outside the window. Our host were very helpful and kind, taking the time to explain some of the local info we were after. The countryside is stunning, and you can't beat, waking up to the view from the bedroom window!
We will definitely be back!
