Lovely stay in MaugholdWe had a wonderful stay here for My wifes birthday. I drove To check the place out the week before our stay and Lara showed me around and let me know about the local area. She was extremely accommodating as I had family come up to surprise my wife and even made a birthday cake for her on arrival which was delicious. The place is lovely with many little gardens around the property. The shed pub is a delight with roof terrace to enjoy the sun for longer and even an outdoor sauna you can use. Lara and Adrian made you feel like they couldnt do enough for you throughout our stay. The area is lovely with an electric railway station a short walk up the road, and two beautiful beaches down the hill in this underrated part of the island.

Idyllic, relaxing staycation!Just back from a lovely relaxing weekend at Elgin Retreat. Lara & Adrian went out of their way to make our stay memorable, and we wanted for nothing. The cottage was equipped with everything we needed and the garden bar and sauna went down a treat! The grounds of the house are beautiful and the location is perfect with just a short walk down to the beach and a few minutes up to the tram stop. We have been missing our trips away this last year but this really felt like we were on holiday, and we've returned home feeling revived and refreshed. We highly recommend Elgin Retreat to any couple looking for a relaxing break, and we look forward to returning again soon!

Perfect accommodation for holiday or staycation - could not fault itWe booked Elgin for a short staycation and the details online did not do it justice. The accommodation was beautiful, spotless and catered for all your needs. Lara and Adrian were the perfect hosts, and made our stay even more special. We loved spending an evening in their little bar and the sauna the next day went down a treat. The location is idyllic and a short walk gets you down to the beach and onto the Raad ny Foillan coastal pathway. After the first day we had fallen in love with it and had booked a return stay in the new year. We were so desperate for a get away and it even felt like we had travelled off Island (without the hassle and cost of travelling) for a perfect mini holiday at Elgin. Would thoroughly recommend!
