Reviews from guests
“Beautiful setting and accommodation warm, comfortable, cosy and clean. Lots to do and lots to see in the area with some of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen. Made to feel very welcome by Fiona and Michael and hope to visit again some day soon. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to 'switch off' from the rat race!” Lesley B, March 2013
Downey Birch House can be found above the big stone barn first left as you travel into Arising from the highest turn off the A830. Just take the driveway next to the barn.
