Guest Reviews


    • “Lovely warm Cottage. Everything was perfect!”

    Mrs Gravestock, Wormley, October 2015

    • “The most appealing features of this cottage are its location and views. Sitting in the conservatory overlooking Bantry Bay is very relaxing. The house itself was warm and well equipped with a nicely appointed bathroom downstairs and shower upstairs. The kitchen has all that is necessary and the oil fired heating is very efficient, so good for a cooler weather break. The owner was very helpful and everything was appropriately laid back as you would hope to find in Ireland, even these days! A very happy week away, many thanks.”

    Mr Dossett, Bromyard, September 2015
