Customer Reviews of Glen View, by Cannick - Sleeps 7-8
1st comment: What a marvellous venue for strolling out your back gate into a lovely wooded area complete with meadering lake, little wooden "swing" bridges and freedom for the dogs to run. The house itself offered EVERY comfort we could think of (even providing poo bags for the dogs) and the owners have gone the extra mile to make it a comfortable stay. Highly recommended. April 2012.
2nd comment: A lovely location and very, very quiet. If you want peace. then this is the place. The Deer was seen but alas not the Pine Marten. Well equipped and comfortable. Sept 2011.
3rd comment: Excellent accommodation. Wonderful wild life. Good location for touring. June 2011.
4th comment: Beautiful House and gardens, well equipped, everything I needed was there. One of the best holiday homes I have rented. The birds were a delight, we had a cuckoo visit every day, and we saw a whole herd of deer in the field behind the house. June 2011.
