Customer Reviews of Garden Cottage, Fairlaw - Sleeps 6
1st comment: Quiet and yet the coast was very accessible. Owner nearby and very friendly. Sept 2010.
2nd comment: It’s an upside down house which is so pretty and the kitchen area is massive and beautiful, only problem I had was 2 of the cushions in the sitting area have feather cushions - didn’t discover this until the last day but knew i was allergic to something. Sept 2010.
3rd comment: Wanted to bring the kitchen/dining area and bed home...very comfortable and spacious. Sept 2010.
4th comment: Pleasant, quiet situation. Comfortable and well-equipped cottage. June 2010.
5th comment: Beautiful situation and views. The idea of an ’upside down’ house in this position was excellent. Lots of space and in every way, very comfortable. May 2010.
6th comment: I think that the description did not do it justice... fantastic big space to enable the whole family to relax in comfort, and nice extra touches, such as the large box of toys and games for the children, the books on the shelves and the freshly baked bread on arrival! Only very minor criticism was that a couple of light bulbs did not work and the battery in the kitchen clock needed replacing! Dec 2009.
7th comment: The picture’s do not do it justice that are on the website, loved the cottage, and would definitely go back. I have two small children, two and a half, and a three year old, this property was very much suited to our families needs. My mother was also so with us, and she was also impressed. p.s. the lady that own’s the property makes very nice sponge cakes. One very happy customer. Oct 2009.
8th comment: We really enjoyed our holiday at Garden Cottage, thank you. June 2007.
