We booked Slackgate for a family get together as it is located between where we live in England and family coming from up in Scotland.

The house is immaculately clean and presents really well. A great kitchen with all the mod-cons you would hope to have and a dining table for 6 adults. The rooms are all spacious and the 2 en suites are great. Good shower pressure and very hot so this is always a plus.

We had a baby with us and the high chair / baby cot was all set up for us which was great. The fire worked perfectly and the normal heating system kicked in when required. Never once felt cold thats for sure!

Big garden but given it was the end of September and a bit rainy outside we didnt make the most of it. I can see in summer it would be great to hang out in the fresh air having a BBQ.

Only minor issue is the 10am check out time on a Sunday which is a bit early. Not a showstopper but 11am would have been a more palatable time to leave. Some of the info within the cottage could be update to assist; for example the recycling centre is past the pub, past the new builds up on the right hand side of the road. The info pack says just past the school which is much further down the road. Again, not a major thing but just to make life a bit easier.

Would definitely recommend to friends and family.
