What the Owners Say
“We have loved our time in Braco and The Byre. It is a lovely house with loads of character and it has been a great home for us. We love entertaining in the big living area downstairs and also just having cosy nights by the fire. The seating area outside is another brilliant spot and we’ve enjoyed eating outside lots in the summer. Braco itself is a great place with a real community. There is always a community event happening and the café is a great place to meet folk. We have made friends in the village that we will be sad to leave behind. We’ll also miss beautiful walks and cycles from our front door and swimming in the river that runs through the village in the summer! We have had our first child during our time here and it’s been a really special place to be a young family with many others in the village at the same stage. Although we’re sad to leave we’re looking forward to moving closer to our wider family. We really hope someone will love The Byre as much as we have done!”
