Guests Comments :
“Thanks celia and richard for a great week in the cottage. We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was great, the rooms really big and the daily gifts of fresh bread and cakes were a great touch. The boys enjoyed snooker too on your full size table. Cycling was fantastic on very quiet lanes. Hope to see you again.”

“Lovely place and fabulous hosts! We arrived to a home make cake!! Definitely worth a stay!”
“Craigadam has its own charm we could not resist. We were staying as 2 couples with 2 kids under 2 and we had a wonderful time. Lodge is perfect size for 2-3 couples with kids and all bedrooms are a great size and on-suite bathrooms. Breakfast in the main house was amazing and we really enjoyed our stay. We had a really crap weather for a day but staying in the lodge was very enjoyable and the sheltered central courtyard was a nice option on a rainy day. There was even a sandpit available that our children enjoyed a lot. Hopefully next time we will be able to explore walks available straight from the lodge. Also, the location offers a lot of attractions within up to 20mins drive – especially for the little ones. We can’t wait to be back to see other things we missed out on this occasion.”
