  • "Fantastic house in gorgeous surroundings ."

    Lots of space to be together or do your own thing . A few minor points let it down though these were minor . It would have been nice to have been informed at the time of booking that £300 bond was required not after final payment was made . The management need to get tthier act together regarding collection of bond ,one person introduced herself as the cleaner and asked for £400 the next lady asked for £300 after a long conversation with the owner , which we paid no receipt was issued . The oil and electric were to be paid by meter reading on the last day It would have been nice to have been informed what the opening readings were .Neither freezer was usable as they were so iced up .The range cooker only had the ovens usable as the rings were gas. No gas.?The recycling centre only takes cardboard plastic glass etc. Any other waste has to be taken to a local centre at a cost of €8 Don’t mind that but it again would have been nice to know on booking These again were minor points didn’t spoil our holiday in the least

  • "We had a wonderful holiday in Sanderling."

    The house is spacious and really well-equipped, with brilliant facilities for families in particular - our children were able to roam safely on the grounds, explore the playground area and enjoy all the toys and games in the house. With the other buildings on-site, it would also be a great venue for a large family gathering. Annabel and Brian were great hosts and so considerate. We would definitely go back.

  • "Sanderling Lodge is a really lovely place to stay."

    We stayed with my two sons and their young families and it worked wonderfully , one family with the big boys upstairs, little one in the cot with his mum and dad downstairs and us two in the annex, so, all close but with space and privacy. The wonderful full-length kitchen could have board games at one end, quiet reading at the other and bird watching in the middle. We had wonderful weather so we were out playing ball games in the big garden, or going round to the play area where the kids played on the slides and in the little house which was a big hit. Everything we could need was provided and we would love to stay again. All communication with the owner was straightforward and the caretaker dropped by to check we were all good. (We had a great meal at Mary Barry's, very child friendly with a great menu and play area, so we all reccommend going there.) Thank you for a great family stay, and we look forward to a return.

About the location


Wexford 9 miles.

The small village of Tacumshane in County Wexford has a pub and restaurant, The Millhouse, and is home to the Republic of Ireland's only surviving windmill. Built in 1846, the timber used is thought to be beach driftwood or wood from the shipwrecks that were all too common in this coastal region. The windmill is now designated a national monument. This part of County Wexford has plenty on offer - Tacumshane Lake is a favourite with anglers and birdwatchers, there are many golf courses, and the coastal walking path is easily reached. Kilmore Quay fishing village is a few miles down the road, and there are some lovely beaches, ideal for relaxing and playing on the sand. The county town of Wexford is under 10 miles away, and offers plenty of amenities including shops, bars and good restaurants.
