“Excellent House”
Reviewed 29 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

A large group of family stayed for the weekend for a 50th Birthday.

The house is beautiful and very modern with lovely views of the countryside. Plenty of room for everyone and it had everything we needed. Beds really comfortable and bathrooms are high quality.

The owners are great and very friendly, letting us feed the and walk the Llamas. We also had a regular visitor to the house, Ogg, we all loved him.

A brilliant place and would stay here again!

Thank you for the lovely review. Og, in particular, appreciates it! It was a real pleasure for Alan, me, the llamas and Og to have you to stay in the Coach House and you are welcome back any time.

“Just the ideal family holiday house”
Reviewed 9 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We rented The coach House for our side of the family for my son's wedding nearby and it was absolutely top notch. We had our two little grandsons aged 3 and almost 7 with us and they had a ball - Juliet and Alan were so kind and generous and let them feed the llamas and they even had a trip in the side car of Alan's vintage motorbike. Nothing was a bother for Juliet and Alan and they made us feel so at home. The house is well kitted out and we had a lovely big family meal on the night before the wedding. It is simply gorgeous and we so enjoyed our time there. The views are spectacular and we even had a BBQ on the Sunday. Highly recommended.

“Perfect place for an extended family holiday - something for everyone”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We cannot recommend the Coach House highly enough for a large group (in our case 3 generations of family). As well as the accommodation being to the highest standard, the setting is beautiful and plenty of lovely beaches and amazing castles within striking distance. The owners were very welcoming and all of the kids (and adults) loved the opportunity to feed the llamas and take them for a walk and have a ride in a motorbike and sidecar. The large games room/cinema was fantastic too. Another bonus was having a table big enough to seat 16, meaning the whole family could sit down to eat together. We'll hopefully be back again in the future!

Thank you so much for the great review. It was a real pleasure to have such cheerful and appreciative guests staying in the Coach House and it is always a pleasure for me to introduce people to the llamas and for Alan to take people for a wee spin in the sidecar!

“An amazing Wedding!”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

A huge thank you to Juliet and Alan for being the perfect hosts. We have just had the first Wedding at The Coach House - an intimate, family ceremony in the stone horseshoe.
From our very first contact with Juliet, she has gone over and above to help us organise a beautiful Wedding. The Coach House itself is fabulous, luxury five star accommodation enjoyed by all our family. Juliet and Alan erected a superb Bedouin tent especially for us as a honeymoon suite as there were sixteen of us in total.
With Juliet's recommendation we had a fantastic photographer who captured our day beautifully with motorbike side cars and llamas - all with the help of Juliet and Alan.
The Coach House itself in it's stunning location was what we booked but we received so much more!
We cannot recommend The Coach House enough for a fantastic stay and a beautiful Wedding venue!
Many thanks again

Thank you for the extremely kind review, Mr and Mrs Harris! We were delighted that you wanted to have your wedding here and felt very honoured to be invited to the ceremony - it was truly brilliant, and we were relieved that the sun came out for you. We enjoyed meeting your families and doing gardening and stuff with the kids and pleased that you liked the canvas honeymoon suite. You are most welcome to come back for your anniversaries.
