Very High Quality- Exceeds expectations!
My wife booked this large cottage for our Christmas holiday 22 to 29 Dec 17, with our extended family and grandchildren. Son and daughters and respective spouses/partners came from North and South (We live near Aberdeen). I spent a good time looking through the excellent website to make sure we understood the facilities and location. It all was clearly described and looked ideal. When we arrived it was a real delight to find that the house and facilites were even better than described. There was one of the best welcome packs we have ever arrived to, and there were fresh red roses on the table. The heating system was available on demand at all times and there was a big box outside the kitchen with a very good supply of dry logs for the woodburning stove. Much appreciated! It was really heart-warming to arrive in the evening after a 6 hour drive in the dark and find that the owners had switched on a beautiful array of Christmas lights around the cottage. My 2 y/o grandchildren when they arrived were wide-eyed! I think we may do the same thing again next Christmas if I can get a booking.

This was a fantastic holiday home which was clean, well equipped and with loads of space. The owners could not be more helpful. We will definitely be back and would recommend to others.

We were delighted with the cottage and there was plenty of room for the 12 of us. We loved staying at Chimney Gill and hope to return soon.

Very comfortable and enjoyable stay
Everything was excellent. The house and furnishings were comfortable, coordinated and spotless and the welcome was exceptional. The central heating was so good we didn't bother with the fire. welcome pack was very generous and everything else one could need was available. The wifi was as good as I am used to in London despite the house being relatively isolated. Staying at lambing time was perfect and every was very helpful in telling us how the farm worked.

Great place for family event
We stayed here for a birthday and Mother's Day. The layout of the ground floor (a big L shape) is perfect for social family life. Nice sized bedrooms with massive beds, with 2/3 rooms have good views. Kitchen is well equipped and real fire very welcome. The owner/farmer let us in to see the young lambs and was friendly throughout. No complaints and an excellent stay.
