“Excellent secret hideaway to get away from it”
Reviewed October 21, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

As my title says Collette's cottage is the perfect hideaway to get away from everything. No mobile signal, beautiful scenery, big log fire, endless books and no one to disturb you. Perfect.

And to help make things better the cottage is extremely well setup with large clean rooms and everything you would need to have a nice break.

Donegal is a fab spot and if you can get a nice location and weather, which we did, you will not be disappointed. Also it goes without saying that Collette is very helpful and just wants you to enjoy your stay which we did. And a big plus for being pet friendly as our dog enjoyed it more than us!!

Many thanks Collette.

“The place to be !”
Reviewed June 12, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We spent almost a week in this lovely cottage. 2 adults and 3 kids ! Each one of us was completely amazed by the place ! So beautiful !
This cottage is so pleasant to stay in ! The living room is warm and cosy, with its fireplace (we went there in may but we still appreciated it !), snug sofas ... with a good beer/cup of tea (up to you!), this is really the perfect home sweet home !
The kitchen is bright and clean, the rooms are large and very comfortable....
Colette thought about everything, very complete information about what to see and do in the neighbourhood, games for rainy days, balls for kids, eveything you might need in the kitchen... Everything in there makes you feel at home and definitely not in a rental house.
And this is so quiet and peaceful ! The only thing you can hear is the sound of the wind...
If you've never been to Donegal (which is definitely a major mistake !), you will be in the perfect place to visit the whole county. You can never forget about those gorgeous landscapes, beaches, cliffs overlooking the sea, a real "movie atmosphere" ... And the sheeps !
We could only recommend you, as far as possible, to arrive during the day time. The cottage may be hard to find at night.
