GRANARY COTTAGE guest reviews 2022

"Fabulous stay at Granary Cottage, would love to visit here again. Our house is a reno and I can't tell you how lovely it was to be able to pad about in bare feet on carpet and cook in a stylish kitchen. An excellent base for exploring in both coast and Helmsley directions and rural location suited us perfectly. Ideal location for our elderly greyhound who can be unsettled in a strange place but he was very relaxed too. Owners very kindly saw that our grocery shop was put in the house when we were delayed by car trouble and couldn't let Sainsbury's know - much appreciated."

SMITHY reviews 2021

“Warm, homely space in a beautiful location! We were just pleased to find a place that was situated in the North York Moors and appreciated how remote it was. Christina was very helpful at providing all the information about the cottage. The cottage itself was warm, clean and wonderfully put together. Loved the original beams around! All in all, highly approved by human and dog!”

A.S. - The Smithy, near Scarborough, North Yorkshire - November 2021 (Airbnb)

 

"We had an amazing week away from everything in Troutsdale. The cottage is situated in the bottom of a beautiful valley. We visited during autumn and the colours were amazing. The cottage is much larger than the pictures show. We had everything we needed, including a great kitchen for cooking meals. The living area is really cosy and great for watching TV or reading. The bed was comfortable and the bedding was really warm, boosted by the under floor heating. We had a couple of messages with Christina who responded quickly. All in all it was a great week and I would highly recommend staying here."

A.C. - The Smithy, near Scarborough, North Yorkshire - October 2021

 

"A delightful return visit to this peaceful location in very comfortable surroundings., Thank you once again and we hope to return and will recommend your excellent company. Your standards in all direction are right at the top end"

H.T. - The Smithy, near Scarborough, North Yorkshire - September 2021

 

"Small but well designed accommodation that is very well equipped and clean. It is extremely remote and whilst places not far in terms of miles, due to the hilly, windy and narrow roads it does seem to take ages to get anywhere! Having said that if you are after complete peace and quiet and happy to do a bit of home cooking it is a lovely location, and whilst we were not so lucky with the sunshine the week we stayed, the 3 of us had a very restful break."

J. - The Smithy, near Scarborough, North Yorkshire - September 2021 (Airbnb)

 

"We loved the Smithy. Luxurious high thread count bedding and very comfy bed. Lovely well equipped kitchen and nice furnishings. Best of all peace and quiet. Nice view from patio with good walks. Great wildlife and lots of sheep. 40 minutes from Whitby (I have never seen so many fish and chip shops!), with Sandsend nice beach an extra 10 mins further for a less commercialised experience. Scarborough 30 minute drive. The place to shop and very commercialised but nearby Cayton bay a lovely beach and well worth a day spent. Stunning coastal views everywhere we drove. the Smithy makes a great retreat or a good base for a holiday."

K.P. - The Smithy, near Scarborough, North Yorkshire - August 2021 (Airbnb)

 

"We had our 2 week honeymoon at The Smithy cottage which was perfect, just what we wanted.quiet & secluded with only sheep & pheasants for neighbours in the field. having a car is a must as the nearest town is a good 20 mins drive.very clean,tidy cottage with all u need.we would not hesitate to stay here again if we visited Yorkshire in the future."

"Fabulous place and lovely location had a very relaxing stay"

N.P. - The Smithy, near Scarborough, North Yorkshire - July 2021 (Airbnb)

 

"The cottage and scenery are beautiful. The cottage had everything we needed especially given the covid restrictions. We were only 30 mins away from areas of interest such as Scarborough, Whitby and Dalby Forrest. Cottage was very homely and modern but with a cottage appeal. Plenty of space for 2-3 adults and dog friendly which was a big bonus."

J.M. - The Smithy, near Scarborough, North Yorkshire - July 2021

 

“Wonderful quiet location perfect for recharging batteries. The views around and walks from the cottage are lovely. Enjoyed a daily visit from a chaffinch and a pair of wagtails. Due to Covid there are no books/maps etc so be sure to bring your own as a map of the area is helpful and interesting.”

A.H. - The Smithy, near Scarborough, North Yorkshire - June 2021 (Airbnb)

 

"What a wonderful cottage! I have stayed in quite a few Airbnb’s around the world, and this is my favourite! Our own private retreat for a week, yet close to many places of interest. Everything provided that you could need (all of a good quality). We truly relaxed watching the lambs from the patio with a glass of wine!"

J.H. - The Smithy, near Scarborough, North Yorkshire - May 2021 (Airbnb)

 

"We only booked this cottage at the last minute, and we were so lucky to get it! Our host was wonderfully helpful and she gave us clear and very helpful instructions and we found our way our way to the Smithy with no problems. The place is beautiful, private and pristine throughout. My wife and I were both well pleased! The place has brilliant WiFi which was needed as the area suffers from poor cellphone reception. But we needn't have worried as our host Christina also has an inside pay phone for use in emergencies. The Smithy itself is beautiful and rustic, with thick solid stone walls and ceiling beams throughout. It has been very tastefully decorated with Laura Ashley curtains throughout. The bedrooms and bedding and towelling are immaculate and the bathroom is very modern with a beautiful corner shower. The living room is spacious and has double glass doors overlooking the valley, and two steps up is the tasteful modern kitchen which has built in cupboards with modern lighting and a fridge freezer, washing/ drying machine and dishwasher, oven and microwave. The Smithy has every modern accessory leaving us to only need to supply our own food! The property is also central heated and warm throughout. The patio at the rear and the hillside view are to die for. We give both our property and our host 5 stars."

P. - The Smithy, near Scarborough, North Yorkshire - May 2021 (Airbnb)

 

"Wonderful location in a beautiful and quiet valley. Perfect as a base for walks in the North York Moors National Park. It's wonderful to sit on the patio on a sunny day and listen to the birds singing. Very clean and the linen and towels had also been washed at a temperature of at least 60C, which meant they were properly clean and fresh. Nice to have mini guest soaps to use. Appreciate your friendly and professional communications. Thank you."

Lovely pub at Allersyon called Cayley Arms."

A.V.- Manor House Farm, near Scarborough, North Yorkshire - October 2021 (Airbnb)

The location is ideal if your looking for somewhere a tad more remote and quiet but within easy driving distance to places like; Flamborough Head, Robin Hoods Bay and Filey - couldn’t recommend enough."

TIGH BEAG reviews 2021

"Fantastic Airbnb, well worth the drive"

E. - Tigh Beag, Conaglen Estate, near Fort William - November 2021 (Airbnb)

 

"The house is super clean, spacious and very comfortable. The photos don’t do it justice - it is a beautiful space. The only thing to note is that the kitchen is not equipped with condiments such as milk and sugar or oil for cooking - it’s quite a drive to the nearest store, so make sure you bring those things with you. Overall an excellent stay in a beautiful location."

M. - Tigh Beag, Conaglen Estate, near Fort William - October 2021 (Airbnb)

 

"This house is in a truly beautiful location. The home itself was incredibly clean and quite home-y and comfortable. Well worth your money :) be sure to say hello to the sweet horses that life next door and get some good walks in."

"Wonderful location & beautiful house. Big size of bedrooms & very nice & clean toilets. Lounge & kitchen have great views towards the loch. Even on a wet day, mountains look magical in the mist & clouds. Good wildlife seen around including ospreys & deers, with Highland cows just behind the house. Need to come with food stock as shops are fair distant away. Kitchen is adequately stocked with utensils & cutlery, good size fridge freezer."

V. - Tigh Beag, Conaglen Estate, near Fort William - August 2021 (Airbnb)

 

"Such a lucky find! Myself, my husband, our 3 children (aged 9, 11 and 12) and our dog couldn’t have asked for a more perfect place to have stayed in for our first ever trip to Scotland. Beautifully kept, well furnished, spacious - yet with a cosy, homely feel - and the most picturesque of views; we were completely delighted with our house and location… we only wished that our 4 night stay was longer! Highly recommend."

SWALLOW COTTAGE reviews 2021

“We had a lovely stay at Swallow Cottage over the Christmas and New Year period. The cottage was very comfortable, clean and cosy, with beautiful views across the bay, especially at sunrise and sunset. Thank you very much.”

A.M. - Swallow Cottage, near Inverness, Scotland - December 2021

 

"As wonderful as ever."

G.T. - Swallow Cottage, Bay Farm, near Inverness - October 2021

 

"Wonderful location, comfortable beds, easily controlled heating. The cottage has a lovely ambience and a very peaceful setting."

J.G. - Swallow Cottage, Bay Farm, near Inverness - October 2021

 

"We love the peacefulness and beauty of the cottage and surroundings. We put bird food out on the nearby bird table and see a plethora of birds including the local woodpecker. We see the local seals, red kites and ospreys during the early summer months. We revel in the countryside and thank the estate for being able to rent the cottage on a regular basis which we will do for years to come."

C.B. - Swallow Cottage, Bay Farm, near Inverness - September 2021

 

"Always enjoy coming to Swallow… and that is over 20 years. The bay is beautiful and we love the tranquility away from the tourists!"

L.M. - Swallow Cottage, Bay Farm, near Inverness - August 2021

 

 "I have now stayed at Cottages from Country Cottages over the past 8 years. Everyone of them have been fantastic. These two cottages imparticular were amazing due to the outlook and location. Wake up in the morning to colonies of seals on the sand banks and Osprey fishing from Munlochy Bay. It is very secluded but I find that tremendous."

M.H. - Swallow Cottage, Bay Farm, near Inverness - July 2021

 

"Location, ambience, support. Christine and the home management crew are first class too."

C.B. - Swallow Cottage, Bay Farm, near Inverness - July 2021

R.M. - Swallow Cottage, Bay Farm, near Inverness - July 2021

 

"Beautiful location, lovely cottage, quiet and peaceful but only 10-15 minutes from main road (down farm tracks, with a few potholes, okay if you use caution). Would certainly visit again."

I.P. - Swallow Cottage, Bay Farm, near Inverness - June 2021

 

"This cottage is lovely and its in the most amazing location - If you want peace and quiet, this is the place for you. It's very spacious and well-equipped, the bed was comfortable and the shower had some power. The host was very helpful and responded to communications quickly and clearly. Avoch not too far away - perhaps 2.5 miles to walk on quiet roads and there were a few take-aways available and a pretty good little shop. One of the best things was watching the visiting seals when the tide went out in the bay and the resident Osprey. We would certainly return."

S. - Swallow Cottage, Bay Farm, near Inverness - June 2021 (Airbnb)

 

"Once again a wonderful stay in very well maintained accommodation. Views are amazing and abundant wildlife right in front of the window. If you have problem housekeeper is easily contacted. Hope to return next year."

ROEBUCK COTTAGE reviews 2021

"Roebuck cottage was simply a home from home. It was clean, spacious and literally had everything we needed for a family of 5 and a dog. The view is to die for. We would loved to stay again next time we visit Scotland. Thanks Christina "

K. - Roebuck Cottage, Bay Farm, near Inverness - December 2021 (Airbnb)

 

"The cottage was spacious, and cosy. The cottage is in an area that makes you feel at one with nature. Everyone was so helpful, everyone should be able to stay at a place like Roebuck, it has great healing properties, we feel rejuvenated and mended."

L.S. - Roebuck Cottage, Bay Farm, near Inverness - November 2021

 

"We have been here several times and every time we arrive we are again astonished about the location. The most beautiful spot on earth. The cottage feels as home, and the service is perfect."

S.B. - Roebuck Cottage, Bay Farm, near Inverness - October 2021

 

"We have had a lovely relaxing break at Roebuck Cottage as usual and enjoyed everything very much. Our one concern, now that we have an electric vehicle (EV) was, we had to plan days out very carefully. There are no public Charge Points (CP)within the Black Isle. Those shown on www.zapmap.com are at certain Hotels and for use by their own residents only, or in some cases by “Tesla” vehicle models only. We chose to plan our routes around the C P at Dingwall 10 miles from the cottage. We are very familiar with the area. A typical outing to Strathconon would be 10 miles to Dingwall (CP) + mileage to destination + return mileage to (CP) +10 miles to cottage ensuring enough power remains to begin again next day. The point being, that you would be unlikely to find a suitable CP in a remote glen. All this very unlike driving in the central belt of Scotland. This said, it worked for us. We found the Dingwall CP to be in good working order, not always the case with charge points, and also, we were lucky not having to queue. We were able to go for a walk, shop or have coffee or a meal while the car was charging. The good points were that our fuel costs were much lower and we helped the climate. Next time there may be more charge points available. I hope these observations are helpful to other EV drivers and that they enjoy their holiday in the Highlands."

C.S. - Roebuck Cottage, Bay Farm, near Inverness - October 2021

 

"Been coming to this cottage for the last 8 years, cant see us changing yet"

J.D. - Roebuck Cottage, Bay Farm, near Inverness - July 2021

 

"Great location, amazing view across the bay, just up from the beach with the sounds of the seals and the sea birds reaching up to you as you eat outside on the patio area. Pine martens, deer and red squirrels in the woods around the cottage and only a few miles away from Inverness and little coastal villages. The inside of the cottage is very large and has everything you need in it. Highly recommend it!"

P. - Roebuck Cottage, Bay Farm, near Inverness - July 2021 (Airbnb)

 

"Roebuck (and Swallow) are beautifully located with super views across a small sea loch and excellent sunsets. Large and small birds pass overhead regularly, many birds arrive to feed on the loch edges outside summer, whilst Harbour Seals haul out on the sandbanks over summer with their pups. There are many pleasant walks from the door and within a short drive. Local amenities are of good quality and there are many small sites of interest in the local area. Roebuck is very comfortable, well thought out in terms of equipment and always spotless upon arrival. Any requests for additional items are met with prompt resolutions as are concerns about technical problems."

G.T. - Roebuck Cottage, Bay Farm, near Inverness - June 2021

 

"As always, the location is what takes us back time and time again. True peace and quiet and within easy reach of the Highlands both east and west. Love it!"

We have booked another two holidays at Otter Lodge, so that probably speaks for itself. We really appreciate the extra work you all have to do because of the new Covid rules. We had one problem while we were there and it was very quickly sorted. Thank you so much. See you in the Autumn."

BOATHOUSE reviews 2021

"Can’t fault the boathouse! We had the most amazing week here! It’s so quiet and relaxing whilst also being a 15-20 minute drive to Inverness city centre.

PRIMROSE COTTAGE reviews 2021

"Compact, clean, modern and exceptionally well-equipped. Perfect for 2-4 people. Two minutes walk from the centre of town, with a great view over the fells to both front and back. Loads of walks right on the doorstep, from easy to challenging. The only downside not mentioned in the property description, which is otherwise scrupulously accurate, is that it is located on the main through traffic route, which might put some people off, though it did not bother us. In any case, there is little traffic after 10pm. We never had a problem finding on-street parking opposite or close to the property, though this might be different in summer. The nearest car park is two minutes walk away, and the hosts provide a free parking pass."

"Nice kitchen and furniture generally. However I think it should be mentioned in the details that this cottage has low ceilings. My husband and I are quite tall and we struggled especially in the shower. Good location for access to sedbergh facilities. Online booking and payment worked well Sheets and towels nice and clean"

"Fantastic location in a lovely little town - you can step out of the door and be up on the fells in a few minutes, but are also well-connected to reach the wider Dales or even the Lake District in a short time by car. Great place with a very well-appointed kitchen and great quality of all other facilities - only a single caveat: maybe not entirely suitable for very tall people, the ceilings are quite low upstairs, especially in the bathroom!"

"Beautiful cottage, really nicely furnished with a lovely kitchen and gas fire, very comfortable. The location was perfect for lots of good walking in the Howgills, and Sedbergh is a very nice town with some amazing shops. Country Cottages were brilliant at communicating everything, accommodating, and on hand to help at any time."
