Guest Comments

"Very rural setting, peaceful. Perhaps too rural for children but we went out to the beach each day…we were lucky to have great weather. Cottage was quaint and a quirky layout, but we settled in well. Everything we needed was there. We thoroughly enjoyed our break there"

Carol, July 2021

"Lovely comfortable cottage, spotlessly clean. Accidently left my denim jacket. It was in the post the following day. Loved the location, lovely walks to the river. Village handy for provisions needed."

Jean, July 2021

"A beautiful little cottage in a wonderful setting. If you want to unwind from the stresses of life. This is the place to be! Loved it. And so did our 2 labradors!"

George, May 2021

"A very last minute booking, but we were not disappointed. The cottage was loverly, clean and comfortable. There was everything we needed. The location was perfect, very peacful and surrounded by wildlife. We enjoyed exploring the area. The coast, hills, forests and moorland are all nearby."

"Lovely lovely cottage, a home away from home. Thank you."

"A great little cottage, on a quiet road near to a farm, plenty of cows and sheep to see out of the window. Very clean, warm and comfortable. Not a lot to do around the village but that's why we liked it, a walk on the beach every day kept the little one happy, a few forest walks around too but bring your wellies! Lots within driving distance if you want to go further afield though.A few things to look out for - the stairs are a little steep which is fine, but the double and twin rooms upstairs are separated by a few steps and a tiny landing at the top of the staircase, so we weren't really comfortable leaving our three year old who likes a nighttime wander in the twin room on his own, so he ended up in with us; and while the dining table was fine for us as a couple with one small child, if you're a bigger family, or three or more adults, you'll probably have to rearrange some of the furniture to get everyone round it. Still had a great time though. :)"

Paul, October 2020

"Very comfortable and comfy cottage just off a quiet lane, local amenities consist of a coop and pub - but as we took food and drink with us not a problem, not for you if you want nightlife! Kitchen was very well equipped, best I've stayed in. We loved the peace and in these crazy times we really enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again soon. Oh and lovely beach within 2 miles of the cottage."

Kelly, September 2020

"We very much enjoyed our time at Balnowlart Lodge. Such a wonderful tranquil location. We enjoyed sitting out on the terrace watching the local wildlife such as red deer, hares and the cows in the field adjacent to the cottage. We found the lodge to be very comfortable and well equipped. Hob was a bit tricky to work out, but luckily found the manual in one of the kitchen draws. Loved the open fire place and enjoyed several fires on cooler evenings. Ballentrae is approx 1.5 miles and is an absolute delight. Enjoyed the stunning beech and views. If you are looking for a peaceful break, then look no further you won't be disappointed"
