  • This bach was a fantastic place to stay

    This bach was a fantastic place to stay. It was a restful home, larger than we expected and with all you needed. Everything from the linen to the kitchen utensils were of high quality, and everything was super clean. The beds were comfortable and we all slept so well. My kids loved the fantastic range of board games (especially as it seemed to rain most of the time we were there!) We did manage to get in some mountain biking which was very accessible. I can't recommend this place enough.

  • Great spacious bach with everything you need

    Great spacious bach with everything you need. So much space for our 5 adults and 3 kids. We didn't need to use all the beds. One wing was super warm with two heat pumps, but the bedrooms on the other side were a little chilly. Overall, a great bach and would stay again.
