  • "Just idyllic."

    A perfect peaceful setting. Catherine and Ciaran could not have been more welcoming, kind and helpful. Welcome pack of warm, fresh, homemade bread, marmalade, milk and dog treats. They had even lit the logburner! All very much appreciated after a long drive. Cottage is well appointed to an extremely high standard and spotlessly clean, wonderful attention to detail with lots of quirky features. Within easy reach of the interesting places to visit both inland and on the coast.

    Everything we needed. Even the dog was looked after!! The cottage was spotlessly clean. We were even given home made bread, butter, marmalade and eggs. It was a bit chilly at night so we lit the log burner which made it very cosy! We plan to return, hopefully in February!! A first class cottage!!

  • "This property has been converted to a very high and tasteful standard."

    It has been decorated beautifully which adds to the countryside experience. Every detail had been thought of by the hosts which made the stay extremely enjoyable. A lovely touch was to be welcomed by home baked bread and farm eggs. Dog bowls and dog treats included which was also unexpected and lovely touch. Idyllic location but close to M4 for getting around. Can’t wait to come back thank you to our hosts you were amazing!
