Super spot! Great for a group looking for a relaxing break. Very rural location but beautiful scenery right on the lake, quiet and peaceful. Plenty of room in the house with a big cosy sitting room, large kitchen and even a games room! Would highly recommend! And Marissa was so helpful, thanks!

“Idyllic scenic spot for peace and quiet”
Reviewed 8 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Long House. It is situated in an idyllic lakeside location with wonderful views and total peace and quiet.
The kitchen dining room and lounge are large and easily accommodate the numbers that the property sleeps (10).
The bedrooms are more than adequate with comfy beds and there are 4 bath or shower rooms. The games room is also useful although the weather was so amazing we didn't need it too often.
Where the property falls down (only a little) is in relation to the condition of the non-matching crockery, glassware, and cutlery with the bedding also being a little tired. However, this was a minor criticism. We would certainly visit again.

“Remote but Scenic Location and substantial Accomodation”

This large property is VERY remote, but in a really great location with lovely view of the lake. The weather was not great when we were there but in good weather this would be a fantastic location for a quite holiday. The accommodation is substantial, we were a mature party of 5 - we spent most of our time in the large kitchen 0 there was a lounge but we didn't use it. The Wifi was using an dongle and wasn't great. The kitchen Utensils were in a terrible condition and really should be replaced. We had a really enjoyable stay and would return if they promised they had sorted out the pots and pans.

Dear John,
Thank you for your review.
Yes, as you said our house is in a very remote location and because of this we have had problems with wifi connection in the past. We have started using a dongle because we believe it gives us better connection than a fixed line. I know its not 'perfect' but it's the best we can provide given our position by the lake.
We regularly update bits and pieces for the house, but due to the high volume of guests some items go missing or get damaged for one reason or another without us knowing.
Thank you for drawing attention to the pots and pans, I will ensure they are replaced.
best wishes
Marissa
