Customer Reviews of Craigencoon Cottage, nr Tynron, sleeps 8
1st comment: The cottage was surprisingly modern and extremely cosy- exactly what we needed at New Year. It was very well equipped, I can’t think of a single thing that we needed that wasn’t provided. The location is very quiet and remote- great to get away from it all. We also found the neighbours to be very friendly and helpful. Dec 2011.
2nd comment: Although there was’nt a visitors book handy we told the housekeeper how much we loved the cottage and how well she looks after it. It’s brilliant for two families because of the two wings to the house. Without a doubt we would visit again. We’ve booked many times with your company and have’nt been disappointed yet. Many thanks The Denham family. Dec 2011.
