Airie Farmhouse Reviews
5 star reviewLovely property in an ideal location for our fishing trip. Views are stunning and the remote location provided the peace and quiet we were looking for. This wil be at least the fourth time we have stayed here.
Be warned that ideally you will need an SUV/ 4x4 for the access road along the old railway line
5 star reviewSecond visit to this amazing clean and comfortable secluded cottage. Everything you need for a relaxing away from the rat race. Peace and quiet with abundant wildlife everywhere. Amazing walks from the cottage. Two weeks wasn’t long enough we were sad to have to leave.
5 star reviewThe location of the property is ideal for us as we like to be "in the middle of nowhere" and surrounded by wildlife. The property itself is not too modernised, again something we love, and the fact that it is dog friendly meant that the Labrador could come too. A "child" gate at the bottom of the stairs would be a useful addition as it would mean we wouldn't have to keep her confined to the kitchen in order to stop her going upstairs as she's used to having the run of the house at home.
The only annoying thing we encountered was walkers not using the footpath round the property but cutting through the garden, leaving the gates open and letting their dogs run loose in the garden, even coming into the porch. Perhaps the odd sign pointing out that the garden is private property would help. The route of the footpath could do with proper signage.
