“Cottage envy....”
Reviewed March 15, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Very much straight out of the holiday magazine ... Beautiful well restored irish farmhouse property... as my title suggests don't stay here if you suffer from cottage envy ... you will want to wrap it up and take it with you.. This is the second time we have stayed at Avish ... a very relaxing break both times.

“Superb!”
Reviewed September 27, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I can't praise the Avish cottage highly enough. The thought that had been put into the renovation was brilliant. It has all you want in modern fittings, but also had lots of beautiful arty touches. You could tell this has been a work of love! Ann was lovely and helpful in her emails that she sent in the run up to our stay, but the welcome we got from her brother Robert was second to none. What a lovely man. It's not often you are welcomed with fresh salad, carrots etc straight off his farm, but we also were supplied with milk, cakes, home made jam and so much more. We had great weather during our stay, and although we were mainly there to see family, we got out and about every day. We love beaches and we were both amazed at the high quality of those nearby! A wee trip to Portrush, Portstewart, Castlerock etc highly recommended. Tons of things of interest to do and this cottage was a smashing base. Again, I can't recommend Ann and Robert's cottage and their welcome and kindness too highly.

Thanks so much for writing such a lovely review - we're really pleased you enjoyed staying at the Avish and that the weather was good enough for you to be able to get about and visit some of the sights on offer. It was a real challenge to restore the cottage the way we did, and it's just great that visitors appreciate it so much and feel at home there. A big thank-you as well for leaving the house so spotless!
