“Excellent holiday home, lovely quiet area.”
Reviewed February 18, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I booked this cottage as I have a dog and was bringing my 2 grandchildren who needed wi-fi.
I must say that it fulfilled all my expectations. Lovely cottage.

“Great weekend ”
Reviewed February 14, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

There was 6 of us.
We all had a great time and are planning to book again.
The house has a great vibe and was spacious.
The bottom floor was very sociable with the open fire made very homely.
Would highly recommend.

“A home from home....”
Reviewed July 15, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

A spacious and obviously loved family home... all you need is provided. The house is immaculately maintained! Every detail is considered from deck chairs for the garden for warm weather, books and DVDS for grey days, to spare mattresses under beds in the children's bedroom for unexpected guests!!!

The house is a short walk from the village and beach and of Black Glen with its access to Downhill Demesne and Mussenden Temple. The historic temple balances on the cliff edge and over looks nearby Downhill beach...

My husband and two teenagers stayed here for.a couple of days. The house was perfect and had everything you could possibly want including free wi-fi which is very important for the teenagers.

Clean property in a quiet area. Perfect for exploring coast or even a trip to Donegal! Pet friendly and adequate space can park right atcfront of house. Would def recommend ...only complaint is im not a keen walker and house is right at the back end of the delevopment...its a pity it isn't a bit closer to the beach and shops... x

Thanks for the great review Lynn, I'm really glad you enjoyed your break. As you say, it is a very quiet & secure cul-de-sac but unfortunately that come with the price of being at the end of the line.
Hope to see you again. Regards, Keith.

“Homely, welcoming, quiet and relaxing place to stay”
Reviewed June 7, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Had a great week staying at Yellow Cottage - set in a lovely, quiet, road within five minutes walk of all the amenities that Castlerock has to offer.
The cottage had everything we needed (including free wifi) and Keith bent over backwards to make sure our stay was comfortable and relaxing.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Yellow Cottage - it's a grand place to stay.
