Customer Reviews of Olafs Cottage,Garlieston, sleeps 6
1st comment: Great location, superb views over the bay. Lovely walk through the woods to the bay past the fairies in the tree. March 2012.
2nd comment: Quite an isolated property, which was what we wanted. Very cosy and welcoming. You need to take plenty of supplies with you though as shops are very far away. Nearest supermarket was 15 miles away. Sept 2011.
3rd comment: Isolated. Aug 2010.
4th comment: The tree swing in the garden was great for the children. The property was much larger than the pictures on the web-site. The log fire was easy to use and great after a long day. Aug 2010.
