The cottage is in a great location for exploring the area and has good walks directly from the doorstep. Strumble Head is less than half an hours drive and well worth a visit, a lovely walk along the coastal path. The sunroom is a great asset to the cottage, well built and a good size. Unfortunately, we had to return home after just a couple of dayRead mores due to illness so we didn't get to visit any of the local pubs. We did have lunch at the cafe in Trefin when we arrived - definitely recommended! Hide

A beautiful little cottage in an idyllic location. Exceptionally well equipped and well kept. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and, much to our dogs delight, made the most of the countryside public foot paths and coastal walks. If you are looking for peace and quiet in a rural retreat, then this cottage is perfect!
