We had the most perfect weeks holidays at Marsh Cottage. The house is just beautiful - it was a privilege to stay there, surrounded by the owner's beautiful artwork and furnishings. With no television or wifi, it was great to get away from screens for a week. Apart from horse riding lessons in Bundoran, the kids spent their time exploring the field (great excitement at finding an Irish hare hiding in the grass), climbing trees, finding fossils at Streedagh Beach and doing a bit of reading and crafts in the evenings.
The house was really warm and cosy and very comfortable, and the kids loved the bunk beds in their bedroom. We spent many a blissful moment sitting on the bench at the front of the house listening to the birds singing - pure relaxation. The house was perfect for exploring the region, with stunning views of Benbulben on the drive to the main road. Highly recommended if you need a break from busy, modern life. From initial booking to leaving, the owner was very helpful and welcoming.
The service I received from both tripadvisor and the owner were' second to none', in fact I was greeted on arrival by the lovely owners who showed me about the cottage and advised me on the things to do and see in the surrounding area. Although the cottage may not be to everyone's taste it certainly catered to mine. We spent days lying at the beach, nights around the barbecue and rounded this off with a few hot whiskies in front of the open fire. The cottage is quite central to beaches etc and a short drive to Grange will take you to shops, pubs, restaurants etc I loved the relaxed atmosphere about this little place and although some may not be able to live without their phone, I could. Loved it!!
I stayed with two of my friends in this lovely old cottage and we had a great time.
The Character of this old cottage is amazing, it brings you back into a different time with the low doors (ceiling is very high) the stone fire place and other character features. The views to the back are stunning, rolling hills and lovely countryside. The perfect place for a quiet and relaxed break, no noise, no direct neighbours, we just loved it.
Also it is just a stroll away from the water, where you have amazing views to Mullaghmore castle.
Strandhill is just a 25 min drive away and Bundoran even closer, about 15min drive, which is perfect for surfing.
Big Thanks to Catherine for everything.
