We have stayed at Peacock's Rest cottage, Kionslieu, every year for the past 13 years, and have never yet failed to have a memorable holiday, in spite of occasional shortcomings of the weather.
The cottage, suitable for 2 people, is clean, modern and comfortably furnished, with central heating and all the facilities needed for a holiday stay in this most beautiful of islands. The block of five cottages, from the small to the very large, were built about 15 years ago from the stone of old farm buildings, and are set in a small farmyard with communal washing machines and a payphone contained in separate rooms. There are many animals for the children to pet - rabbits, goat, sheep and Poppy the dog, and in addition, a children's play area with swings, slide etc. and a tree house will keep the youngsters fully occupied. There is even a barbeque available for those who prefer to eat al fresco.
The cottages all come with radio, tv, video and dvd players, and there is ample parking space close to each cottage. The proprietors, Fiona and Tony Barker are two of the most charming and helpful people you could wish to meet, and I have no hesitation in putting Kionslieu right at the top of our self-catering accommodation list. Indeed, we would not dream of staying anywhere else.
