“Courtyard Cottage 2”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

Stayed in this cottage as a part of our honeymoon and it was amazing. It was very romantic with champagne on arrival and a gorgeous jacuzzi bath. We had a really relaxing time and we would definitely visit again.

Cottages for couples gave myself and my partner a most enjoyable and relaxing experience from beginning to end. They gave us excellent directions to the main house where we met Peter and he gave us a little map to our little barn and excellent information about the area and things to do. On arrival at river bank barn we were greeted by tranquil remote surroundings and the gorgeous renovated barn. The barn was clean and cozy. A bottle of champagne was waiting for us on entry. Rose petals on the bed. Robes neatly waiting to be lounged in. The attention to detail was exquisite. A TV with sky, a DVD player, a CD player, a fabulous power shower and a separate jacuzzi bath, not to mention the hot tub outside our door for us and us alone. Cant wait to go back. What was really fantastic was the info pack and "Diner Card" provided which outlined various hot spots to eat and drink locally, had taxi numbers and take away numbers and great deals. It was the ultimate romantic escape.

It was our first weekend away as a couple and we stay in the Courtyard Cottage 1 which was really cosy and romantic. The cottage was tidy and well looked after. A bottle of champagne waited for us as well as a little welcome note from the owners. We couldn't wait to get into our bathrobes and to try out the hot tub. It was very romantic and we really enjoyed having a bit of quality time together and getting away from our hectic lifes. The owners did up a nice info brochure of what to do in the area, where to eat and drink etc. We took some tips on board and had two great days out. We recommend the place to everyone who is looking for a relaxing and romantic break away. We loved the cottage and will definitely come back! Thanks to Anna & Peter and we hope to get down again soon. Christiane

Sadly these expectations were not validated.
Lonely and unloved - Untidy - Clearly the owners strength lies in marketing.
The Cottage scheme certainly has great potential and although there are no real 'attractions' in the immediate vicinity, the place does offer a certain calmness.
Our Cottage was very poorly maintained and quite basic, lots of things did not work, CD player, Toaster, Heating not controllable, no loo paper, lots of ants etc.
The place was neither finished nor maintained very well and I note the energy is being expended in expansion rather than maintenance
The HotTub is a lovely idea and we enjoyed it very much, however it reeked of Chlorine and the high concentration actually irritated our skin. Overall we left happy and relaxed but seriously underimpressed.

Room Tip: Try somewhere else

We stayed in the Lassanroe Barn which was exceptional. The barn itself was spotless & very well maintained.

From the minute we walked through the door we knew we made an excellent choice.

Would we go there again....yes, without any doubt whatsoever! If we could afford it, we would buy it! :-)

To Anna & Peter, thank you for making this available to us & we hope to get get down to you soon
