A wonderful place - a real treasure. From finding and booking us a restaurant before our arrival, to a warm welcome with tea and cake and finding us an alternative restaurant after we arrived late, Seán and Corinna are wonderful hosts and I can't fault the two nights I stayed in the garden cottage in any way.
As well as the place being spotless, comfortable, quiet and in a beautiful location, the small touches were appreciated - bottles of mineral water in the fridge, toothpaste and various other consumables beyond the usual shampoo in the en-suite bathroom, wi-fi access and smart-phone charging dock and sound system and a good collection of books to dip into. Nothing felt skimped on and it felt like every effort was being made to make the stay as enjoyable as possible - the traditional full english breakfasts with excellent quality ingredients and home-made bread as well as the interesting conversations with very knowledgeable hosts.
A lovely family and a pleasure to stay there. Highly recommended.
