“Little Gem in the heart of the village”
Reviewed 3 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Almost perfect holiday accommodation - characterful, clean and complete. Fiendly Allister was very helpful when at the last minute I realised that I had got my end date muddled and on arrival provided a welcome supply of tea bags coffee and milk. Double glazed and centrally heated it made for a comfortable stay - especially with the luxury of a spacious shower and excellent bed. The location near a number of foodie pubs and a good range of village shops was very convenient. Only the adjacent country road prevented this from being the absolute perfect location , though I would not hesitate to return in future.

“A PERFECT little home away from home”
Reviewed 19 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had a truly lovely stay in this beautifully restored and furnished little house. Everything was just perfect!
Starting from the little container of milk in the fridge, the complimentary biscuits and tea/coffe - TWO TVs in such a little house :0 (perfect!)
Beautiful bathroom,
Comfy beds
Tateful furnishings
More than lovely host
We will certainly return again :-)

“Home for a while”
Reviewed 30 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed at The Bothy on our return from the U.S. After eight years. My husband started a new job in the next village so location was perfect. Loved the village so much we have now rented a flat there to start our new life.

Beautiful bothy and welcoming host. We had everything we could have hoped for . An ideal site for touring the area and the local pubs/shops were excellent. We look forward to returning

“A hidden gem!”
Reviewed 23 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

We were looking for a place to rest while passing through the area and came across this charming little bothy quite by mistake.

It ticked all the boxes and provides everything you could wish for from a miniature holiday home. It really is an idyllic bijou little place and oozes historic charm from the beams to the fireplace.

In size, it was comfortable for 2 people with room to spare. The bedroom was large and airy and the bathroom spacious and well equipped.

We were pleased with the cleanliness and the décor. The owners provided every manner of amenities and the kitchen and bathroom was well stocked.

We had no issues with the TV/DVD or internet and made good use of all. We loved how the owners went out of their way to compile a local guide and information booklet that covered everything we could need to know and beyond. As visitors to the area, it is lovely to be acquainted with the local pub times and menu!

We would highly recommend this and can say without a doubt that we will be staying here again in the future.

Allister was very welcoming and helpful and understanding of our tailored use of the place. Wonderful communication at all times.

Thank you
