“best holiday home ever”
Reviewed July 17, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

best holiday ever.
Catherine and Austin made our stay feel so relaxed and welcoming.
kids loved getting up every morning and going to the chicken house to collect the eggs and a bag of carrots for the donkeys too.
will be booking up again soon for next year.
only 3 min walk to the local bar (the oak tree) also a very family friendly place
the owner Larry also made us feel like we were locals
folksmills the best holiday in 3 years of going to wexford

I can't recommend Mill Farm cottages enough. We're just back from a week there and we booked again for next year. It is exceptionally clean, had everything we needed and it was a lovely little touch to be greeted with milk, tea bags and a box of chocolate biscuits on arrival after the drive down. The owners Catherine and Austin are lovely and were very helpful. We went to see lots of local attractions including Hook Lighthouse, Secret Valley Wildlife Park, JFK Arbortorum and Duncannon beach. Our kids played with the kids from the other cottage and loved the company. The garden is enclosed and has toys and a purpose built games/playroom. We had a fantastic time.

“A beautiful hidden treasure.”
Reviewed July 29, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a excellent stay at Mill farm. The cottage was like a home from home, everything we needed was there. We stayed with our two daughters aged 7 & 4 and a nine month old baby. All our requirements were met at the cottage. The location is quiet and beautiful, just what we were looking for. The girls enjoyed feeding the donkeys everyday and going up to the chicken coup to see if the hens had laid any eggs. The new playhouse was a hit also, they looked forward to going in there in the evening to play table tennis. They had the freedom to play in a safe environment without there parents watching over them all the time. Catherine & Austin are very welcoming and had good advice on places to go and see.
We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning next year.

Thank you very much for taking the time out and giving such a wonderful review of your holiday, it really is great to read that you enjoyed your holiday. We loved having you here to stay and would be delighted to see you all back again. Tell the girls that the hens are really busy now, laying eggs every day, Austin is kept really busy searching for the eggs among the bushes. Thank you again for choosing to come on holiday to Mill Farm. Best wishes always from Austin & Catherine

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at Mill Farm. We loved having you and your family come to stay and especially glad to hear that the cottage suited you all. "Mr Hoppity" is in great form with all the attention given him by the children - its holiday time for him when the season starts up again each year. Thank you again for your business.

“Highly recommended self-catering accommodation”
Reviewed July 15, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have been to stay in Mill Farm cottages twice - we stayed in Brook Cottage in 2012 and returned to stay in Fern Cottage this summer. On both occasions we have found the cottages to be without fault - exceptionally clean and well furnished with lots of attention to small details (right down to the right type of bed linen for the kids) which really makes you feel thought about and welcomed. The holiday home comes well-equipped upon arrival with a starter pack of milk, tea, toilet rolls and usually a lovely sweet treat. Catherine and Austin are excellent hosts and make you feel most welcome and are happy to help on any occasion. The children had a fabulous time playing in the courtyard with all the toys available to them and also the donkeys and the rabbit were great attractions. We look forward to visiting them again soon!

We were really delighted to have you and your family back to stay for a 2nd holiday - and hope that your return stay was as enjoyable if not more enjoyable than your first visit in 2012. It was great to meet you both and the children once again. Best wishes for the remainder of the summer - fingers crossed for lots of sunshine and fun for you all. Thank you so much for taking the time out to post the review, we really do appreciate it. Austin & Catherine.
