Atom Crow is an oasis of peace. Beautifully decorated, homely and very welcoming. Immiediately when we open the front door we relax and know we are on holiday. Seeing a red squirrel today before breakfast was the icing on the cake for another great visit – our fifth! 'Haste Ye Back' we will god willing.WD & Kes (Hertforshire & Ayr)
We had a lovely week and are sad to go home, lovely walks especially the Black Spout woods. The house is lovely & warm & had more equipment than we could ever use. The squirrels visited and nearly came in the house at one point. Lovely week!Ruth & George (Glasgow)
