We found accommodation at Caw Cottage by chance late in the evening and we were very lucky: we were welcomed by Jim in a very cosy and scented home. Jim and his wife Dee were very nice, helpful and friendly, always ready to have a chat, and were very kind to us, they even let us use internet on their... More

We have had very good luck using Trip Advisor and find that the reviews are fairly consistent with our experiences. Unfortunately this was not the case with Caw Cottage B&B. Caw Cottage was a series of hits and misses making it a very mediocre place to stay. We were very interested in seeing Derry and learning about the recent history... More

How can you write enough superlatives about this place? It's been said sooo many times already. Just got back, absolutely fantastic couple and B&B. It was so nice, clean and cozy with great breakfasts. My parnter doesn't eat pork - so what turns up gorgeous smoked slamon with scrambled egg. Nothing was too much trouble. I am already starting to... More

I had the most unbelievable stay at Caw Cottage earlier this summer. Jim and Dee were funny, accommodating, helpful, overall the best hosts that you could dream of. They are so friendly, but give you your space as well. Upon our arrival, we received cookie (homemade!) and tea and Jim offered us some Irish stew! Between the entertaining stories that... More

I stayed with my parents at Caw Cottage as we were visiting Derry for the night. Dymphna and Jim were friendly, knowledgable and very welcoming with a pot of tea on arrival and lots of advice on Derry for our stay. They recommended and booked a table for us at an excellent restaurant and showed us around town. The rooms... More

We found Jim and Dee our hosts were the most friendly people we had met on our trip and we had met loads of friendly people. Our room wasn't huge but it was very comfortable and cosy. We were made to feel like one of the family. The breakfast served was equal to a five star hotel. We would have... More
