My partner and I wanted a quiet getaway and boy were we in for a treat when we booked The Bach. It's in the perfect location, both quiet and private, and close enough to town. It also has stunning views. The Bach is modern, impeccably clean, and cozy. We went during bad weather but that didn't damper our holiday given it had a heat pump and plenty of blankets. The bed was also super comfy and the bedding/pillows were luxurious. Delwyn and Lindsay were super hosts - we arrived to find freshly baked bread, homemade baking, and homemade jams. There were also fresh flowers and a lovely note wishing us a lovely holiday. This place is also absolutely equipped, there isn't something that isn't here. They have all the kitchenware and appliances you could possibly need, they've even got a little box in the bathroom with things you'd usually forget. Overall, this place is a 10/10. The house was amazing, the location was amazing, and the hosts were amazing. We'll 100% be back.
We had a great stay at The Bach it's location is perfect, you feel like you're in the relaxed atmosphere of the country but only minutes from the action. The Bach is set up perfectly with everything you need for your stay, beautifully clean and tidy, comfortable bed, spacious bathroom and well stocked kitchen. Delwyn is a wonderful host and adds all those fabulous touches to make sure your stay is perfect, home made bread and cookies, everything you need and want for your breakfast and more. We will be back!

Me and my partner stayed at the Bach for a weekend and we loved it! Delwyn was a great host and was easy to get in contact with. Fresh baking and everything you need for breakfast also provided including the great views! The Bach itself was really nice and spacious. We will definately be back again in the future!
