Perfect family holidayabsolutely, wonderful in everything. Each one is super comfortable, the location is wonderful, the view is fantastic. From the moment you arrive at the place, you already feel a sense of freedom in a paradise. Inside the house we found everything we needed. And outside, in addition to the stunning view, we were able to take long walks, and feel at peace and security. We will definitely return

Wonderful WeekendWe are a group of 6 middle aged women who were looking for a weekend away from the chaos of family life and Eary Cushlin did not disappoint. The location of the property is rural and the views are breathtaking, once you turn off the main road and start down the track you really do feel that you're heading off into the wilderness, it's a wonderful feeling. We had packed supplies on the basis that we would not be leaving the property, the closest shops are a 15-20 minute drive away. We arrived at the property and on entering the initial impression was wow - the place was spotless and this theme carried on as we explored further. Please do take time to read the information file there's everything in there. Kitchen The kitchen is very well equipped - there is everything you need. If you wanted to cook from scratch there are plenty of pans, casserole dishes, chopping boards, decent knives etc. The oven & hob are gas and very easy to use, there is a large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, toaster and microwave which are all of good quality. We would describe the kitchen as a one person but ideal as you don't have to move far, everything is to hand. This is not a criticism as the space has been used well. In the same room as the kitchen is a large breakfast bar with stools and great for everyone to sit around to chat. Dining Room Again well equipped with a large table, placemats and high chair. Living room The gas coal/log fire effect is very good and puts out some heat, again easy to use. There is a good TV and DVD player we had a movie night and it was very comfortable. WiFi Whilst as advised there is no phone signal the WiFi was perfect. We had 9 devices logged onto the network a combination of iPads and smart phones, the network supported all of them no problem. Bedrooms All the bedrooms are lovely, everyone commented on the bed linen (white & crisp). Bathrooms The bathroom upstairs is massive with an over the bath shower, double sinks and toilet, again all good quality. The towels provided we excellent. There is a toilet and shower room downstairs which again is excellent and more of a wet room please don't think that as it's downstairs it's a little under the stairs affair, it's not! With the exception of the downstairs toilet/shower room, bunkbed back bedroom & upstairs bathroom the remainder of the rooms all have a wonderful views. We did venture out for some walks which are all well signposted but you my have guessed this wasn't high on our agenda. If physical exercise is more your thing there are plenty of opportunities for running, cycling, walking etc. Our group was made up of women from different walks of life with different expectations and none of us were disappointed. We could see the property being idea for all different group types. We booked though Island Escapes and they proved to be a very profession organisation. Supported by prompt responses to email queries, when they say they will send you information it arrives as promised. Finally, if you haven't guessed by now we had an absolutely wonderful time and cannot recommend this property & Island Escapes highly enough.

No faults to be found!We had an amazing stay at Eary Cushlin to celebrate birthdays. The location was perfect, made even more so by the fantastic weather we had. Outdoor seating would be really beneficial on order to enjoy the weather more as we would have definitely sat at the front throughout that day and the evenings. I would thoroughly recommend this property to either a group or a couple of families.

Long weekend breakHad a lovely relaxing time with family including two young grandsons at this beautiful and very comfortable property with it's brilliant setting and views , great walks and lots to keep the kids happy , can't recommend the place and service highly enough , just one observation campervans that park up in the carpark tend to think the bins for the house are for their use and it annoyed the wife a bit after walking to them and finding they were aready full she recommends putting a lock on them.

Peace and quietLovely rural retreat with plenty of activities to do if not a fan of walking each day. There is a public pathway which is used regularly and goes right past the front of the house, we didn't mind this but some people may as it is such a secluded location you don't expect to see other people and is not cheap.

Summer StaycationEven though it was only 20 minutes from home, this still felt like a real break away. Beautiful location and very well equipped house. We will definitely be back for another visit.

Fabulous staycationWe had a fabulous time with our grandchildren and their parents. The house has had a fantastic makeover, since we first started visiting, 25 years ago. The house is fully equipped, warm and comfortable. We only had one suggestion and that is the towels need upsizing from bath towel to bath sheet. We would definitely return again, even though we only live 12 miles away.
