“Fun family house ”

10 of us stayed here over a week and we couldn't have picked a better place. The kids were straight into the garden which meant us lot could put our feet up whenever we were in. Plenty of things to do nearby and reasonably priced even for families.
Absolutely spotless and I'm a clean freak at home!!!
Both owners checked us in and even came to see if everything was ok the next morning. They both take real pride in the place and made us feel welcome.
We were charged separately for the oil and electricity which suited us as we were out most of the time and didn't want to pay a blanket fee as mentioned. Claire checked us out and was really friendly too, asking what we thought could be improved - nothing!
Perfect for families. Definitely booking again for next summer.
Thanks Adam and Lisa.

Stayed here with all the family a couple of weeks ago for a long weekend. The house accommodated everyone and all amenities were of a high standard. We also brought our two dogs who had plenty of secure space and garden area to play in. Would 100% recommend if you have a large group or family and want to stay in the same place. Close to all of the north coast including the Ports. Rhonda who checked us in was super friendly and couldn't have done more. Owners Lisa and Adam were available through phone and email at all times and all queries before our stay were answered super quick. Will definitely be back again, can imagine summer time will be highly sought after at this holiday home! Well done guys on a super holiday let.

“Fantastic weekend in a lovely house”
Reviewed 30 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We stayed at Forestside House for my Dad's birthday. It was brilliant to have enough rooms to easily fit all the family in together. The kitchen was very well equipped with all utensils we could need including a coffee grinder and plunger! Three huge bathrooms meant no queues in the morning! We had our little dog who was happy to have loads of enclosed space to play in the garden!

The owners are lovely and the lady who checked us in was very friendly and more than helpful! They were very accommodating to offer us have a late check out!

We are planning our return trip for next year as per person it worked out much cheaper and much better than any hotel could have accommodated us!

Thank you!

“made me feel young again”
Reviewed 19 November 2016 for a stay in May 2016

16 of us came to watch the North West 200 motorcyle race. We booked here for one night and all 16 of us had plenty of room. All our motorcycles were safely locked away and totally secure. We were going to get taxis to the town which is less than 2 mles away but we were having too good a time on the patio with our own company. Sitting looking out at one of the awesome mountains. Big kitchen with a 5 ring gas hob, micro and george formans sorted us all out in the morning. No rush or push to get us to leave. Manager sat in an adjacent patio area with his feet up having a cup of tea admiring the view with not a care in the world. Our only regret was not booking for a week. Per head it was cheaper than a hostel. Hopefully back in 2018

“Fantastic location for celebratory weekend with all the family!”
Reviewed 15 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We booked this place for my friends Engagement party, it was fantastic that we could have everyone stay under the one roof and not have to worry about taxis or trying to meet up at certain times for dinner/ breakfast. it is set on its own private grounds so we could have loud music without bothering anyone. The weather was great too so we were able to go and do the tourist sights which are very close by too. Great communication with the owners and they were very helpful with all my questions and sorted a late check out for us at no extra cost or hassle. Would highly recommend and the town is nearby too for pubs and restaurants. Thanks!!
