Lovely cottage and location. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I were staying over from a Friday to the following Monday and the owner (Tracy) gave us a warm welcome and gave us all the info we needed about the cottage/grounds, surrounding areas and the best way to get to places. If you like animals this a good place to go as there are horses, a donkey and many dogs! The cottage was well looked after and very cosy, with no problems at all. We would definitely like to return in the future with it being so friendly and cosy. Thanks again Tracy!

memorable stay in The Shire

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks at Muirhall Cottages in The Shire. It is a nice, sweet, cosy and comfortable cottage. Tracy explained everything in such a friendly way (things to do and visit, how to get there). The farm was perfect for our holidays and we didn't want to go home. We want to come back again because everybody was so lovely and friendly and we loved the farm and cottage. Our daughters loved the horses and the donkey, they did horseback riding several times. They became very good friends with the dogs and especially with Tracy's daughters. Thank you for everything!!! We enjoyed our holidays immensely. Hope to come back again next year. Especially a big "Thank you" to Tracy and her daughters.
