What people say about us

The perfect house!

 We celebrated our Ruby Wedding Anniversary here with our two sons and friends.  Bracken Howe was the perfect house and we feel very privileged that we have been able to share it.  Some good walks done by all.  Ages from 3 to 67!

The Brooks, Essex – May 2017

 The house lived up to all our expectations.

The setting was amazing and the house furniture and fittings top notch.  The hot tub was fab.  We would highly recommend this lovely home and hope to return again.

The McNulty family, County Mayo – June 2017

The accommodation was of a very high standard and the facilities were excellent.

The age range of the party was from 2 to 71 and there was plenty for everybody to do. The big attraction was that it was so close to the town centre but the outside play areas and the hot tub were also well enjoyed.

Mr G, May 2017

There is so much to do around the area for people of all ages.

We came here to celebrate my 70th birthday.  We have all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in this beautiful home, in such a wonderful setting.  We had fantastic weather but even if the weather had not been so kind to us there is so much to do around the area for people of all ages. Big hits – the hot tub, the children’s play area at the rear of the house, football field at the rear of the house, Go Ape.

The Gilmour family, Isle of Bute – April 2017

Thank you for a clean, excellently appointed and very sensibly arranged house.

 The furnishings and facilities are tasteful and of high quality which we all appreciated.  Thank you for the children’s toys and the large luxurious towels.  Very unusual to find a house of such quality that is arranged and equipped so sensibly!

The Roberts, California – June 2017

Our 3rd visit to Bracken Howe

We have thoroughly enjoyed our time away.  Plenty of laughs and giggles and as one of the ladies said, “it has been the perfect tonic!”  this was a much needed break for us all and we are all leaving feeling relaxed, refreshed and are already eagerly anticipating our next visit in 2018!  Thank you so much!

The Speechies – June 2017

Great attention to detail

Fabulous stay.  Well equipped house with great facilities.  Lovely handy location.  Much fun and happy times had by all in a beautiful setting.
