Customer Reviews of Benvie Farmhouse, nr Dundee - Sleeps 12
1st comment: The house was perfect for the occasion. It was a family get together for my husband’s 40th. We were lucky with the weather however there was plenty to do if the weather was not great. The house was spacious and location was brilliant. Already recommended it to someone else. March 2012.
2nd comment: Fantastic. March 2012.
3rd comment: Beautiful old house, great for a weekend away with family or friends. Jan 2012.
4th comment: There was plenty to entertain two children aged 4 and 6 on site both indoors and out. This meant the adults were happy too. The open plan set-up of kitchen, eating area and sitting room was conducive to easy interaction. There was, however, a breakaway Monopoly game in the dining room! Jan 2012.
5th comment: The property was way above our expectations for the money we paid, we all enjoyed ourself and have tried to book again since our return but its not available. Would recommend as a great holiday place for relaxation and for the children, there is lots to do and lots of space for them to run around. Dec 2011.
6th comment: There were 9 of us that went on this holiday, 5 adults and 4 children. We all had a wonderful time and as the other reviews have said, the house is wonderful. Could not ask for any more, there was so much to do. Loads of bikes to use too, adults and children’s and there were helmets too. The description and photos do not do the house justice, it is much better. Cant praise this holiday enough. Oct 2011.
