Glenhowen is a beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. The cottage is decorated in a modern but sympathetic style and every little thing has been thought of. We would recommend it to anyoneMr A Pitwell - 25th July 2016
Glenhowen is a gem of cottage - making you feel at home in old but modernised surroundings at the heart of the village. Lynns art and that of her workshops groups adorn the walls giving a wonderful display of images to peruse should you find yourself in front of the fire on a less than clement day! Cosy and comfortable bedrooms and perfectly equipped kitchen.We had a superb stay and had the bonus of attending one of Lynns weekly art workshops! We recommend that too.Ms Helen Mundy - 1st June 2016
Lovely cosy cottageMrs C Monks - 18th May 2016
Fantastic cottage with everything you could need e.g. enough proper size mugs, plates and practical things like a clothes horse to dry clothes after using the washing machine (something missing from other cottages we have stayed in with washing machines).Mr Niklas Pettifor - 4th April 2016
