A Lovely Family Holiday Weekend by Mrs McKay, Carnoustie on September 23rd 2016
We all had a lovely family holiday weekend. The grandchildren (all 9 of them) had a great time in the house playing hide and seek and other such games - it was very spacious. As the weather was good, we had plenty of walks and the little ones loved to watch the sheep. One of my sons-in law looked after the fire and made the lounge very comfortable in the evenings. We explored the area and all in all a good time was had by all.
Perfect For A Large Party by Mrs Turnball, Wishaw, March 2015 on September 23rd 2016
What a lovely welcoming house, perfect for a large party. We had everything we needed with plenty of room for everyone. Had beautiful views. The owner and the farmer who looks after the house were most helpful. We had a wonderful weekend and we would highly recommend this property. We will definitely be back!
We Had A Great Time! by Mrs Oosterhof on September 23rd 2016
he views from the property were spectacular. The house was big enough to accommodate the 16 people comfortably. The open fire was great and there was enough fire wood to last our stay. The kitchen was very well kitted out and made cooking easy. We had a great time!
An Excellent Setting by Mr Anwar, Bonnyrigg, March 2016 on September 23rd 2016
Excellent settings and good facilities to enjoy a weekend away from the city. Plenty of local walks with the option of easily reachable activities.
Exactly What We Required by Mr Tierney, Ryton, July 2016 on September 23rd 2016
Riechip was very comfortable and exactly what we required, in a good location for all of the activities in the vicinity. The drying room was essential and well used, the kitchen was well stocked with utensils, cutlery & crockery. Beds were comfortable and most of the bedrooms were large. The living room was large with superb views over the valley.
