The Bothy House is a beautiful unique property in a lovely setting but in need of some TLC and attention to detail. The layout of the house works well and there is plenty of room for a family of four. However we discovered that the beds did not have mattress protectors on, there was a pillowcase missing in the master bedroom and the extractor fan (and main light) in the ensuite bathroom did not work. The kitchen is sparsely equipped and the microwave and oven were dirty inside. Also, we discovered that there is no WIFI - admittedly I did not check this when booking and made an assumption that there would be so just mentioning this in case it is important to future visitors. That said, we still had a lovely week as there is plenty to visit in the area and the property is well located with good access to main roads. Also we appreciated the thickness of the stone walls and the shade from the trees when the outside temperature was 35 degrees!

Excellent location for a quiet, private getaway. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We had a few minor issues when we arrived, but the owner was quick to rectify them. Beautiful getaway, but is starting to be a bit tired and maybe needs a bit of a spruce up. Overall a very good stay and lovely owners.
