"A Slice of Heaven!"
Reviewed by Niki M, Brisbane, Australia on April 7, 2017 for a stay in May 2017
If I had a house in heaven, it would look and feel exactly like Glenloch Gatehouse. We stayed here for 3 nights in May last year, and from arrival to the day we departed, this is by far, the most wonderful place we have ever stayed.
This gorgeous and well appointed cottage has everything you could ever want for a memorable and romantic weekend escape. The cottage includes a cracking gas fireplace, a super comfy king bed, tucked beneath a window with stunning views of the garden, (there are also his & hers robes & slippers!) as well as a lux bathroom. Everything in the cottage from the layout, decor, furnishing, art, and amenities, just exudes classic sophisticated elegance, mixed with a cosy homely country feel that is altogether a recipe for perfection!
To top it off there is a hi tech private spa pool that looks out over a beautiful tranquil and immaculate english garden, (which we enjoyed wandering around in immensely!) Then the icing on the cake (yes it gets even better) is the extra, special touches added by the lovely, warm, welcoming and generous hosts (who made us feel very special), which is why I am able to review my stay here so easily, a year later!.
These added touches were the champagne on ice, awesome coffee machine, the home made brownies (which were DELISH!), fresh local produce including eggs, bread, jams, cheese & crackers, milk, butter etc, and the hosts even brought over extra kitchenware incase we needed them. There is no time for boredom, as the cosy lounge is packed with entertainment, DVDs, music, and books, or if you want to get out and about, there are interesting, artsy & craftsy shops, cafes and restaurants, & wine tasting all within walking distance or a 5 minute drive down the road. Otherwise just stay in the spa all day and say hello to the the very cute, and curious kookaburra’s, who are not shy to come up close and eat right out of your hand!
We highly recommend this property, especially to overseas mature travellers, mature couples needing to get away for a retreat or R&R, (even the royals would enjoy it here!) Although we do hope people will respect the hosts and take very good care of the cottage and everything in and around it. I would also not worry about the cost, as this place is worth every single cent!
Would I recommend this holiday rental to my best friend? Yes.
