Customer Reviews of Strone Cottage,Glen Fruin, sleeps 8
1st comment: Probably the best holiday cottage we have rented in the past twelve years; not only well-appointed, but with owners who we felt are genuinely friendly and welcoming hosts. March 2012.
2nd comment: Warm and comfortable. Oct 2010.
3rd comment: Lovely location, spotlessly clean, excellent facilities. Quite a lot of furniture in cottage - maybe slightly too much for some tastes! March 2010.
4th comment: Fantastic - The owners well the tops, nothing too much trouble. Sept 2009.
5th comment: Excellent accommodation that allows for all weather conditions. Plenty of space and easy to keep clean. The owners were incredibly helpful without being intrusive. Beautiful location excellent grounds, but peacocks could be a little intrusive! July 2009.
6th comment: The hot tub was great! We loved the little conservatory - nice to have a separate space from the main room if one of us wanted to read in peace. Secluded setting even though there was a house next door; felt very cosy, well equipped. July 2009.
7th comment: The long journey was well worth it, a perfect welcome from the owner, wonderful water, no stress and no phones - perfect. The setting was just so relaxing that we could move in tomorrow, it one of the few places that my children have not wanted to leave - says it all! Feb 2009.
