Anniversary Surprise
Our daughters booked this for our 30th wedding anniversary. 6 of us in total including Stella (our Frenchie). It was a lovely surprise and we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the house. The house was huge, very well equipped and of a high standard. We had a lovely relaxing weekend and would highly recommend this to other families.

5/5 Excellent

Very accommodating
We flew in from United States and had been up over 24 hours. Yvonne was very accommodating and made sure to get the house ready for us carlier then what we were supposed to check in at. Bless her we just needed to lay our heads down for a bit. She does many nice little touches to make you feel at home and welcome. The house is about half an hour from Glasgow and 1 mile from the cute town of Strathaven were there are two grocery stores, butcher shops and places to eat. We live in the country, so to lis it was so nice to leave the rat race of the cities to relax at night. The beds are very comfortable and the house is cozy. We enjoyed our stay there very much,

5/5 Excellent

Lovely home
We had a great time only problem was unlocking the front door but finally did it. The house was beautiful and the beds a little hard, a great experience

5/5 Excellent

A beautiful, spacious home in which to relax
We booked the property for a family get-together to celebrate a special birthday and anniversary together and it provided the perfect place for the event. We felt welcomed from the moment we stepped into the house where a wee dram of excellent whiskey and tablet for each guest awaited us on the kitchen table along with a card from the owner welcoming our family. The property was clean, comfortable, warm and cosy which was appreciated due to the inclement weather experienced during our visit. The extra little touches like the beautiful flowers in the kitchen, the full fruit bowl and cupboard full of all those little things one often forgets to pack made for a very pleasant visit. Everything within the property was of a high standard giving a feeling of comfort and luxury. It was lovely to meet the owner too.

5/5 Excellent

Big and full of character
Highly recommend if you have kids or large party. Massive reception rooms and loads of outdoor space to explore
