"A peaceful cosy retreat with breathtaking views - perfect for 2"
We wanted a romantic, a 'get away from it all' home from home type of property and the 'Guntles with a view' fitted the bill. The location is excellent as it's rural and yet only minutes away from the A3 motorway. The property is very spacious, spotless, comfortable, very quiet and unbelievable tranquillity with unrestricted views that appear to be boundary-less.
The owners are very friendly and know how to provide a wonderful guest experience by welcoming us with a decorated basket full of essential goodies and a nice bottle of wine and biscuits and making us immediately feel at home. They provided additional heating when the weather turned cold. We were allowed to stay late on departure day because we were enjoying the place so much that it became difficult to prepare for departure. Our deposit was returned without any fuss.
We had a great and memorable stay and would book the cottage again and definitely recommend it to any couple looking for a cosy retreat that is great for bonding.

"Lovely view, beautiful location, comfy bed and helpful owners!"
Nice and private flat with a wonderful view. Lovely and clean,pretty shower en suite and a neat little kitchen. Internet access and a up to date TV. Comfy bed, Bedroom furniture maybe a little dated, (perhaps a small thing to concern anyone) Artificial flowers not a good idea.
Owners were very kind and went the extra mile to be helpful. All things considered, we were very happy and enjoyed our stay would recommend it and would definitely stay there again!

"Peaceful and tranquil with a warm welcome."
I stayed in the apartment for 3 months and only left due to change of job. The rooms are kept immaculate. The family are warm and inviting. It was a pleasure coming home and opening up the doors to the sun and open fields. Marvellous!
