This house is stunning! Such a great location. We took our 2 dogs with us and they had a ball too! It is out the way a bit (nearest pub 4km, shops 30 mins drive. There maybe a local shop open during the summer 10 mins walk) this wasn't an issue for us. There were so many lovely walks on the doorstep. We even walked the 4km there and back to the pub one evening and they allowed the dogs in. (Food nothing special at the pub but cheap and cheerful and staff lovely. We even went for a quick pint on the way home with only the card, which they dont except and they let us drop the money in the next day!)
The house itself was so nice. Kevin that met us when we arrived was very nice, said if we needed anything to ring him, which we didn't. The only thing I would mention is if you're not used to heat (like we arent) ask Kevin to turn off the heating as you can always put it on boost if you feel you need it. We were there end of October and the house was very warm. Fab insulation I'd say (this is not a complaint, we just aren't used to the heat!!).
Take a walk to Rabach Glen while you're there (info in the book at the house) it's a good 4/5 hour round walk from the house but you can also drive down to make it a 2/3 hour walk. You must put dogs on a lead as there are sheep there.
We will definitely go here again as we still have so much to explore! Thanks to Sinead (who owns the house) and Kevin (the host)
