    "We loved the peace and tranquillity of this beautiful place at the end of a no-through road. From the front door you cannot see any lights at night and it is rare to hear a car during the day. The dawn chorus was loud and much more varied than we are used to in England. There is plenty of outside space for good weather. If the weather is bad, light the wood burner and the cottage is soon warm and cosy. There are nice drives nearby: the Horseshoe Road and Lough Melvin Drive, but it was tempting to just stay in the cottage, enjoy the peace and recharge our batteries. Our hosts were welcoming, efficient and helpful.
