“This is a house with a beautiful view across an ever-changing river to mountains in the distance.”

We loved this house and would stay there again:
it is warm, comfortable, well-provided for with seating, bedding, hot shower, cooking utensils, binoculars for watching birds from the windows, and all the stuff like pencil and paper that you have to hand at home, but don't necessarily expect to find in a holiday cottage.
it has a beautiful view across a tidal river which changes colour with the weather. We could see mountains in the distance and were happily surprised on day 5 of our stay to suddenly see Snaefellsjokull. It had been hiding in cloud until then.
The house sits at the foot of a majestic high rock face.
We arrived late, as it was half dark, half light, and it took 2 attempts to find the right road, despite the clear instructions from the owners. So don't arrive in complete darkness, would be my tip.
During our first night there, the tail end of a tropical hurricane hit, and the house trembled and creaked rather alarmingly for those of us with pessimistic tendencies used to living in a house of bricks, but it held firm and looked reassuringly very solid and well built in the morning light! Karl, the owner, was in touch by phone to check we were OK and happy with the house.
Before we left home, Karl had given helpful information about travel times and where to find provisions on the way there.
Our rented Berlingo did not cope with the gravel drive up to the house, so we parked 40m down the road - not a problem for us with plenty of teenagers to carry stuff.
It is 5 mins drive from Borganes - supermarket, coffee shop and bakery, good museum and more good views.
