A beautiful house in a beautiful position. It was very well equipped with many extra items.
Mrs Dale

The whole thing as a package was fantastic, every detail was covered and the views were fantastic.
Mr Matthews

An absolutely fantastic property which was spotlessly clean with wonderful facilities. In a beautiful location with stunning scenery. Nothing could be faulted about the property or location - would love to return!
Mr Thomas

This house was amazing and perfect in every way for our family spending Christmas there. The owners have thought of everything which made it very comfortable for a week. The heating, hot water, water pressure, kitchen equipment and general extras were all perfect. Would highly recommend any one thinking of going to Elgol to stay in this house. Thank you.
