5/5 Excellent

Wonderful week
Incredibly quiet and isolated. Wouldn't have known we were next door to anyone. The hosts were super helpful and when the heating didn't work they got it sorted with an hour or so. Lovely folk, lovely place. Maybe a little less chlorine in the tub, a few of us were starting to get minor skin irritation.

4/5 Good

Excellent Break
The house is lovely and the location is stunning! We all had an excellent stay at Eckford House. The hot tub was a great way to relax after our day and having a log fire burning at night added to the experience. We knew there were neighbours attached to the house by reading other reviews but we didnt see them or hear from them so it still felt like we had our privacy. (We assumed they are the owners of Eckford House) We would recommend and definitely use again.!

5/5 Excellent

Lovely break
Had a brilliant stay. Chilling with family and friends. Long walks, cooking and relaxing in the hot tub. The accommodation was spotless and communication with Sandy & Roisin hassle free. Cannot wait to return and would not hesitate to recommend.

5/5 Excellent

Fabulous weekend
We booked eckford house for a family birthday, the house is rustic, quirky and beautifully restored, a real home from home, log fire and hot tub were a huge success, perfect getaway for the whole family

5/5 Excellent

Lovely house and perfect location
We had a really fabulous weekend at the house. It had everything we needed and really exceeded our expectations. I noticed someone had mentioned a lock on the jack and gill bathroom in a previous review and the lack of a lock did cause us a problem since we were sharing with my 20 year old daughter and her boyfriend! Maybe this could be something to sort out....other than that we really couldn't fault the house, the views, the weather and the hosts :-)
