If you're a keen fisherman, then a week by the river may well be your dream holiday. These holiday homes have all been selected with fishing in mind - private lakes, unlimited fishing, boats, licences and angling tuition are among the attractions.
And if some of your party aren't that keen on fishing, then there's no need to worry. With beautiful countryside and beaches, thriving towns and plenty of home comforts, there's something to make everyone fall hook, line and sinker for these properties.

Unfortunately the first I heard from this guest was AFTER their booked departure date and hence they gave me no opportunity to resolve any of their problems or complaints.
Even so I offered to provide a refund in relation to relocation expenses. When they provided a receipt for a nearby cottage that had been booked months in advance I became very suspicious and declined to offer any refund retrospectively when I hadn't been notified at the time they choose to leave.
They even threatened a bad review if I didn't provide a refund and obviously this is now what they have written! So please read all our other 5 star reviews and make your own judgement.

Pleased you had a good holiday. Guests do book again and again as Garden City is so close to everything and although there is a car park to the rear of the complex - a car is not necessary unless planning of doing a lot of touring around.

I look forward to welcoming you back soon.

I must apologise for the heating thermostat in the cottage not working. Unfortunately we were not able to get an electrician over the Christmas period. Regarding updating, the washer/dryer, fridge freezer, cooking pans, cutlery and stair carpet are all new this year. In addition the downstairs bedroom was completely refurnished in quality solid oak. The twin room will be updated this year. Our cottage is assessed every year by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board and our 4 star grading was confirmed in August. Regarding the electric showers the temperature needs to be set before you get into the shower. Regarding the lack of contact,it was winter with short days. It was also Christmas and your family and my family were busy doing what one does at Christmas so we were both not there a lot. The cottage is close to our house and you will recall I did say when showing you around the cottage not to hesitate to call us if you needed anything. In our years of renting our cottage we have found that you have to be careful not to be intrusive of guests privacy so there is a fine line to walk. We try to get it right and hope we generally do. We hope you will stay with us again in the future
