“luxury indeed”
Reviewed 23 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

First and foremost thank you Mary & Phil for letting us stay for a week in your lovely apartment. We had a very relaxed week so cosy and comfortable everything we need to make our stay stress free you had thought of right down to the box of needles and various coloured threads, disaster overrated.
the location was spot on we were only minutes away from all of the main tourist areas the Minister was only a 3 min walk.
Having somewhere to sit out and have a glass of vino was a bonus.
Overall we had a fantastic stay, the welcome sweet meats were a great wee treat thanks. We will be back.......thanks again.

“A truly, super apartment.”
Reviewed 29 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

County House Retreat is a truly, super apartment that oozes quality via its spaciousness, furniture, furnishings and equipment. We enjoyed a great sense of privacy and security. There are no draconian notes about what to do or not to do and the owners, Philip and Mary Nelson, made us feel as though the place really was ours for the week. They deserve a lot of credit for being so laid back, helpful and informative. Altogether, it was a great experience.

“Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed 16 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We had already had the pleasure of having already met super-hosts Mary and Phil, when we stayed in County House.

As with their other apartment we stayed in it was well appointed and spotlessly clean and very comfy. This place is a bit special - wonderful high ceilings, and flooded with sunlight during the day with a wonderful area to sit out and have a coffee. Fabulous location. Highly recommended!!
