Golden circle, glacier and northern lights getaway
Fantastic property to stay in for our first visit to the land of fire and ice. We hired a car and stayed here as a family for 8 days and found it very comfortable, very warm all day/night long and spacious. We self catered most nights and had all the amenities we needed to hand. The views from the property were amazing. We had a cosy fire most nights with free logs supplied throughout our stay. We used the hot tub and spent hours chatting amongst the stars and were lucky enough to see the northern lights three times from this property (look north). Fantastic location if the northern lights is something you wish to see, this was one of our highlights of our stay. We did lots of excursions and visited glaciers and the golden circle, secret lagoon, hiked to a thermal river. We also visited South too but it is a bit of a drive so requires some planning ahead as we used to get about 6hours of daylight per day. The local shop is 15mins drive away, so not too far to stock up on food and supplies. Our hosts were available on the phone if we ever needed them. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property. Thank you kindly for an amazing trip to your beautiful country.

Stunning!
Beautiful cabin, very spacious! Warm and welcoming, everything you need for a family stay. Amazing hot tub! Super hot, couldn’t turn it down so we had to put snow in it, which added to the fun! No microwave or oven which we didn’t really mind. Definitely recommend this beautiful place!

4/5 Good

a very cosy cottage with plenty of room for the 8 of us.
the cottage is in a gorgeous rural non comercial area. we stayed during the height of winter so it was very snowy. we struggled finding the cottage but the owner was available on the phone to patiently guide us to the house. the house is a warm and cosy family home. the hot tube was either roasting or a bit too cool but that may have been our lack of experience in managing it. a real beautiful experience for us all, fire on every evening with plenty of fuel at the cottage.

Great location, with everything we needed
The cottage is up in the hills with a handful of neighbours. Great views, especially at night (if you like stars!). We went in October and there was some snow, so 4WD / winter tyres essential for getting up/down the lane. Well placed for the major attractions, although everywhere is a bit of a drive.
