We explored the area, especially loved going to Cullen. The dogs loved the beach and we loved exploring the massive vintage and antiques shop. The grounds around the cottage are wonderful with lots of different walks to discover around lakes and woodland. We loved playing tennis at the tennis court and my husband loved going for countryside runs in the mornings. You could easily spend your holiday entirely within the woodland grounds. Thank you for a wonderful time.
