I would also like to say a big thank you to you and the owners for giving us, and a number of our friends and their young families, a wonderful long weekend at Arthog Hall Farm. We had friends travel from Ireland, Wales and England with young families (and dogs!!) and the house delivered, accommodating us all and our needs.Chris - 29th October 2018
This was a lovely property in a brilliant location. The house was big enough for 6 adults to be comfortable. Hiking and cycling right from the front door, and sea swimming just down the road. We had a wonderful time.Dr Rhiannon Turner - 25th June 2018
An amazing place in a lovely location, full of character and beautiful views. The house felt very spacious, with lots of rooms, and plenty of communal and private space for everyone. 2 bedrooms with en-suite facilities, 1 bathroom, and a separate toilet meant that we had one bathroom per family. Everything we could have possibly needed was there (things like kitchen scales, bottle opener, games, cafetiere, etc) and there were a couple of surprise welcome touches here and there.Tanya Podinovskaia - 9th May 2018
This is an excellent property for renting, providing very spacious, welcoming, well decorated, clean, warm and cosy accommodation. We could not find any faults and hope to return. The whole family including two dogs had a great holiday.Mrs Carole Puckey - 1st November 2017
An excellent well equipped house in a great locationMr Alan Pedlar - 29th August 2017
Overall, what we expected which was very good. The kitchen was very well equipped, and the range cooker was more than adequate for catering for a group of 9. We did have a really good stay with the family.Mr Graham Shingleton - 24th April 2017
We had an amazing time in the house, plenty of room for all of us.Miss G Jones - 28th February 2017
It was charming and each room had character. The views from the front rooms (up and down) were just the best and all the bedrooms and bathrooms lovely. A fantastic welcome from the hosts and they answered all our questions before hand with no trouble. Having 2 dining tables in separate rooms was really nice and having 2 lounges also a luxury. The larder was very useful for storage and nice and cool. We loved the house and location and will definitely return. Just fantastic. Absolutely recommend.Ms J Brain - 29th January 2017
A charming, spacious, clean property with a fabulous view and lovely neighbours. George III pub couple of miles down the road is a good place to eat.Mrs Forshaw - 1st November 2016
Very good for young children and toddlers, has a games room and garden. Good value for money. Lots of things to do. Travel cot provided came with sheet blanket and quiltMrs Canavan - 23rd August 2016
Lovely property, perfect for large groups due the separate living areas downstairs.Miss Mullarkey - 8th August 2016
A fantastic stay in a wonderful house and location.Mr Steer - 7th May 2016
A beautiful property and hugely responsive owners.Ms Collinson - 4th April 2016
A beautiful house for two families and very lovely owners who looked after us when we had a couple of 'winter' issues. The house has everything we could have ever wished for and so many lovely touches. It felt like a complete home from home. We have already booked to come back. Thank you for having us.The Wards and the Prices - 3rd January 2016
Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful farmhouse. We enjoyed having lots of space and seeing the weather changing from the wonderfully large windows! This is a lovely place in autumn, with beautiful sunsets and the log fire. The pool table and swing were a hit with our 6 & 8 year old girls and the recliners were a hit for us as tired parents!Guiver Family - 29th October 2015
Beautiful views, great house, the makings of a perfect stay for a group of friends on a countryside break. Thank you.Bianca and crew - 31st August 2015
The house is beautiful. We all had a great time. There was enough space for all 12 of us. The wifi was also great, and the games room always had the children busy. A special thanks for the cake and cot. We all would love to visit again and again. Thank you.Khurana Family - 28th August 2015
Fabulous house. Plenty of space. Housed 7 adults and 2 children with room to spare. Warm and cosy with beautiful views. Great location, close to beaches, mountain walks, steam trains, castles and mines. A great time was had by all. We loved the little touches - homemade cakes, Rayburn to dry the clothes, wifi. Will definitely recommend to others. Many thanks.Ing and Daly families - 22nd August 2015
Good property in a great location. We had an excellent holiday.Mr Gaskill - 17th August 2015
Beautiful location! Fantastic facilities, especially the wifi. Kept the teenagers busy all week when the weather wasn't good. Great house with nice small touches such as cake. Will definitely return.The Thomas/Nolan Clan - 15th August 2015
Lovely house, well equipped, very clean, lots of space, fab welcome pack - especially the cakes! Thanks.Diane and families - 1st August 2015
The property was well equipped and very clean. The owner was quite helpful too.Mrs Mendis - 27th May 2015
We thought it was a lovely house. We had a great time here. The views were incredible. The log fire in the front room was a real bonus. Everything was so clean and the owners were really kind and friendly. I think we'll come back again.Mrs Chrimes - 11th April 2015
