A lovely cottage in a wonderful location with super helpful hosts. A fabulous family retreat! The kids absolutely loved the cottage, we struggled to get them out of their bedroom! The cottage was well equipped, clean and plenty big enough especially given its location so close to the front. We will definitely look to return, thank you

Gara Cottage is a fabulous place for a family holiday especially with young children. The facilities are of a high standard and the extras make the holiday really special.

Fantastic cottage - great location in the lovely village of Appledore. Our 2 year old loved the boat themed bedroom and the playhouse, we all had a really great time. It has all the equipment you need for travelling with a toddler (we just took a clip on side for the bed due to our daughter being new to a proper bed!) and lots of toys to explore.

The location of the cottage was perfect-right in the quaint village of appledore. It has everything you need for a great stay. The kitchen is fully kitted out to be able to make your own meals and within walking distance for restaurants and take out. The cottage is modern and clean and was a perfect size for us.

The cottage has everything you need and is really well appointed. The kitchen is spacious and the living area is really comfortable. Young children would love the upstairs attic room. Although there is no parking on site we had no difficulty parking in one of the two local car parks. Worth getting a weekly pass for these.

This cottage really made our holiday. Set in a quaint village we were so pleasantly suprised that our accomodation has just had a makeover. Everything was brand new. The attention to detail was excellent, great taste and not cheap.
