A lovely cottage in a peaceful location

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Skiber Cottage. It's very well equipped; the excellent directions and warm welcome from the owners, and the thoughtful little touches all add to the ease of a self catering holiday. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and ideal for long walks with glorious views. We didn't spend much time at the property during the daytime but in high summer the garden would be great for relaxing in the sunshine. The cottage was just what we needed - a very comfortable base from which to explore the area.

A well situated property

Skiber Cottage is surrounded by National Trust Land enabling you to walk from the front door in beautiful countryside. It is also near to Carrick Roads, a fantastic waterway so great for boat owners. The cottage owners were friendly and we much appreciated the added touches of fresh flowers and a sponge cake to greet our arrival. We would definitely recommend this cottage.
