“Beautiful location”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Had a lovely stay here. Very peaceful location and nice touch by the owners to have a fire ready to light to keep us cosy. Unfortunately didn't see the seal, but would recommend this cottage to anyone seeking a quiet relaxed holiday. We hope to return one day .

“A wonderful cottage by the bay”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The Boathouse is in an absolutely perfect location: directly by the water with it's own beach, sufficiently distant from the other houses so it doesn't feel crowded and it even has it's own gray heron in the morning :-)

There's a wonderful cast-iron bench for sitting outside, the only thing we missed was a table of some sort for having tea and scones in the afternoon.

“Well Exceeded Expectations - A Dream Vacation”
Reviewed 21 August 2015 for a stay in September 2013

Booking online can be daunting. Will the house be anything like the photographs.
In this case, we were awe struck at the beauty of the surroundings and the incredibly well appointed cottage. We can't wait to go back.

“Beautiful cottage in stunning location”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is the perfect location if you want peace, quiet and a relaxing holiday. We couldn't have wished for a better place to stay. The boys loved that they could fish from right outside our back door (not that they caught anything) and we spent many evenings just enjoying the view, no need to turn on the TV. The beds were all very comfortable so we all slept well and the Boathouse had everything my family of 4 needed. We would definitely stay here again.

“Fab location”
Reviewed 17 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015
3
people found this review helpful

We travelled with 2 kids aged 4 and 16 months.. We had a few adjustments to make when we arrived to make it child friendly but in all honesty any longer than a 2/3 night stay and it would have been hard to keep them safe due to step in kitchen and patio area. The place lacks a really good spring clean and facelift. Beds were very clean as was bathroom but just lacked the sparkle clean we usually get with rentals. The location makes this house! Your forget the cobwebs and dust when you look outside! Will return again for a short break but really wish they would invest a little tlc into what could be a real gem!
