Keskadale farm has wonderful views, and we had a lovely time there. BUT...after filling in a questionnaire about the place, I received a very rude response from the owner. I had mentioned the shower was very poor, and it would be a great addition if the property were to have a washing machine. There was also a dead sheep left near where we parked tbe car for several days. The rude response means I will definitely not be returning.
A wonderful hide away.
Left on 09/19/2011 for a stay in July 2011 | A wonderful hide away.
Make it clearer in the booking info how isolated this cottage is ie 4 miles up a single track road.
