  • The Gamekeepers house was absolutely amazing

    The Gamekeepers house was absolutely amazing... don't let the lack of photos on here fool you, this place is awesome. There is plenty of space and the whole place was tastefully decorated, clean and tidy. The log burner very quickly warmed the room up on the cold nights and the kitchen had absolutely everything we could have ever needed. We took a friend from the UK to surprise her with a mid-winter Xmas... was a pity that there wasn't any snow but didn't have to drive too far to find some.

    Amazing, beautiful views and an easy drive to great walks (and a great pub). Watch the sun hit the mountain peaks in the morning and then come streaming in through the windows. Really warm, cosy and comfortable property - even in the middle of winter. There is everything you could need - especially if you love to cook.
