A truly lovely house and hosts. We stayed with Charlotte and Jamie in their beautiful, characterful home, heading out into the hills during the day and returning to the cosiest and friendliest atmosphere you could imagine. Charlotte, Jamie and Molly are fantastic people, full of life and great conversation and we felt really welcomed. As for the accommodation, the room is cosy and warm and at the far end of the church so keeps its privacy. The bed is comfortable and spacious and we slept like logs. All in all an idyllic place. Good for the soul.
ARTISTIC FLAIR ABOUNDS
All we can really say is WOW! What an amazing place!! Honestly, I had high expectations when I first noticed the ad for St. Mary’s Space and to say I was beyond pleased when we arrived is a complete understatement.
We could not have been happier! On arrival, the owners, Jamie and Charlotte, welcomed us almost as if we had known them forever. The house is beyond “cool” you can see the love and attention that has been lavished on this Highland Gem as soon as you step inside. We couldn’t think of anywhere else we would want to be!
Thank you very much Jamie and Charlotte for your wonderful hospitality. We thoroughly enjoyed our Highland stay and will definetely be returning very soon.
