We stayed as a family ( 7 adults and 4 kids) for my Dads 70th birthday and we had a lovely stay and family celebration. The house was perfect. It was warm and cosy and we all enjoyed gathering together in front of the open fire. The house is very comfortable and easy to make yourself at home as it so well equipped with everything you need. The beds were comfy and the house had lots of quirky features that the kids especially loved. (Particularly the gong that had to be rung for meals!! ) The owner was really helpful and very flexible which was much appreciated. Would definitely stay in this lovely house again.
If filled to capacity this is a great value stay, kids loved the house and we found it very cosy with both central heating and open fire!
The accommodation was perfect for a large family gathering. 6 adults, 4 children over 3 generations all were well catered for. We had not only multiple meals we also hosted a party there - lots of entertaining space - all with the back drop of the stunning views. Kids loved the putting green and their own separate lounge. The owner was really helpful with local advice and very flexible with arrangements. There is a great pub / restaurant 2 minutes walk away / a stunning waterfall walk on the door step / golf course within walking distance - Will definitely be back
We stayed at Helenslea over Hogmanay. We were a group of 12 adults and 4 dogs. We found Jackie to be hugely helpful through the booking process and very accommodating to take the dogs, many other places we made enquiries were not!
The house is the perfect location for walks along the beach or to the waterfalls. Big garden to let the dogs explore and lovely views.
The house might be slightly dated but is fully equipped for all your needs, the only downside was that if cooking for 12 the kitchen is a little small as is the dishwasher although had every piece of equipment you might need!
The huge lounge was perfect for us all to be together without feeling cramped.
Overall this house was the perfect place for a relaxing break with friends and absolutely fantastic value for money!!! Thank you!
We were a group of three families, and the accommodation at Helenslea suited well - two bedrooms/family. Views from upstairs bedrooms are spectacular. Gardens are beautiful and the location is perfect. Walk to Glenashdale falls right from house. Dogs were welcome, and house was warm and well equipped. We had a wonderful break here.
What a great place with plenty of space for all 12 of us in the party. Was like going from home to home with all you could need and more, a putting green and play station to name a few! The owner was very efficient and friendly from the start. Fantastic value for money. We'll be back for sure.
We a party of 8 had the best time ever. We loved the house. It was what we called shabby chic. We had a fun filled time. The weather was amazing for September so used the garden a lot. The layout of the house upstairs was a tad confusing at first. But it was great, the space amazing and the three bathrooms were much needed, well there were 8 women! The house was clean. Our only gripe was the cooker, we felt it wasn't big enough to cook for large parties of people. But other than that the house is packed full of everything you need. We will definitely be back. Thank you Jackie. We loved your house.
