    Their bach was exceptional with most amenities you'll need and is picturesque, surrounded by animals and a well-tended garden. Perfect getaway from cities while still remaining close to civilization. Would recommend to all who are looking for some time off. :D

  • This accommodation was very cold

    This accommodation was very cold. No heat and no electric blanket. The blankets provided and the small heater in the unit were extremely inadequate for the space. In addition no thought was given to warming the unit before we arrived. Needless to say we froze and due to the cold did not sleep much. In addition, the bed was uncomfortable, the fridge noisy, and basic essentials such as hand soap, shampoo, hair dryer, and milk for coffee/tea were not provided.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Our first negative response and taken comments on board by getting electric blankets fitted, an extra duvet available and larger heater for size of room. If ""arrival time " is given we can preheat the room. Not sure with bed as not received any previous negative. Will look at noise proofing the fridge This is a bach and never supplied any toiletries but can supply milk on request as most people bring their own . A text of requirements, we would respond

  • Fantastic spot for a cosy cottage

    Fantastic spot for a cosy cottage. Great atmosphere - quiet, relaxing... And friendly alpacas. Very handy place to stay for the local surf beaches too.

  • The property was clean, well equipped and beautifully sited

    The property was clean, well equipped and beautifully sited. The location was amazing: superb views of the valley, very peaceful and tranquil. I loved the gorgeous alpacas (what characters!) and the friendly farm cats.
