“A Hidden Gem” I'm so sorry it has taken me so long to get this review on the website but initially after my stay I'd put one directly on Trip advisor not realising that holiday cottages have to go through their booking agents. However I stayed at Kouloura in February this year and it was the most fabulous "getting away from it all" experience! It is not a busy place at that time of year but the cottage was just amazing. Sandy and ann have put a lot of thought into caring about the comforts of their visitors. Sandy was most helpful with showing me where to go walking with my dog and made sure that I was comfortable with plenty of heating and coal during the cold snap. The beach was within minutes of the cottage and my dog and I just loved twice daily walks either on the sandy beach to the left of the cottage or the really intersting shell beach with lots of rock pools to the right towards the light house and beyond! Wilma who owns the local pub was so welcoming and friendly which just added to the experience. Kouloura is a beautiful cottage, comfortable and homely with so many loving touches. Southerness is a little haven in the wintertime if you can appreciate the natural side of life. Certainly not for people who want to be entertained and have everything at their fingertip without going in search for it! I'll be back for sure!
“An absolutely fantastic time.” My daughter and I booked the cottage for a break over Christmas break for just the two of us (and our Westie!, after what had been a very difficult year. This was to be our first Christmas on our own. And a break it was. We had a fab time. The cottage is secluded, right on the beach and on the day we arrived, the tide was out, the sun was out and the sky was blue. Its the first time I have ever heard my daughter say "I could live here"! The only thing I would say is if anyone is going over the Christmas break, make sure you have enough provisions to save you travelling 20 miles to the nearest supermarket, as all the local stores are closed over the holiday period. But we managed and we had a fab time. Walking on the beach on Christmas Day was just lovely. The cottage is beautifully maintained and has all the appliances/gadets you could ever need. And even though it was December, we were never cold. Will certainly go back again.
