An excellent property well appointed with plenty of space for a large group [ we were a mixed age group of 12]. The plentiful supply of toilets and showers make bedtime and mornings so much easier. The owners who stay in the neighbouring cottage could not have been more helpful.

Fantastic Group MTB Honeymoon!
Left on 06/27/2013 for a stay in April 2013 | Stickwithus
We stayed at White Gables in end of april 2013 as part of a group of 12 Mountain Bikers. We were actually all on the honeymoon of two of the riders who had got married during the week!
We had such a fantastic stay, in fact it was no less than perfect! The welcome was fantastic by the owners who we felt couldn't do enough for us. The property itself is spacious, modern, clean and warm and the layout suited us down to the ground with the lounge and kitchen area perfect for communal living, seating large groups comfortably. There are plenty of lovely bathrooms for all which is ideal when you are mountain biking and the property is situated very close to the local pub which is perfect for a group of bikers. We also had a meal there which was fantastic.
So sorry for all the 'perfects' and 'fantastics' but I can't find any other words to describe our stay at White Gables. Book with confidence...we will be returning hopefully soon!
