“Fantastic romantic break away!!”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

Myself and my fiance stayed in cottage 1 in november it was such a lovely break away, the cottage was small but very cosy, warm and clean and had everything we needed including a lovely hottub. We loved our stay there so much we deciced to return again in february but decided to stay in another cottage. We stayed in lassanroe cottage and it wad absolutly fabulous, it was amazing there we had an outdoor hottub and jucuzzi in our bedroom. It was very well laid out, spacous and clean. Peter and anna were great, so friendly and had everything at hand for us, and anything we needed all we had to do was pick up the phone. If you want a lovely quiet romantic getaway this is the ideal location for you and I no we will definitly be back in the future.

My fiancé & I stayed in Courtyard Cottage No 2 over Valentines weekend. The cottage itself is fabulous, very quaint and suited our needs perfectly. There was a bottle of champagne & chocolates on the kitchen table when we arrived, which was a nice touch. We enjoyed visiting Skibbereen & its environs, though I would point out that "Skibb" is not within walking distance of the cottages and a car is definitely required.

We enjoyed our weekend, but I feel it's necessary to point out that the only negative that we had was the price - we spent >€450 for three nights and we didn't feel that we got fantastic value for money...

We are still on cloud 9 after our fabulous 2 night break at the Riverbank Barn (cottages for Couples) beyond our expectations, So warm and cosy, Champagne awaiting us , lights on, petals on the bed, jacuzzi in bedroom, and the highlight for us, the hot tub on deck, very private, robes and slippers provided, sitting in the tub sipping champagne looking at the stars, it doesn't get better.We have travelled to many places, stayed in numerous hotels, but this really tops it all, we had our lunches out and food delivered to the house, it was just to nice to leave, can't wait to go back, I would highly recommend for a special anniversery, it was my birthday suprise! The pictures don't lie, you must experience it . Jean M

Room Tip: Speak with Anna and Peter they will recommend which cottage would suit you.

It was a tremendous weekend, relaxing, quiet, beautiful scenery etc. the cottage was very well equipped with many luxuries including a private hot tub. It was very clean and tidy. A very enjoyable weekend and the location of these cottages makes all the difference.

I have just recently come back from a stay in Lassenroe Cottage, I have spoken about it non-stop to all my family and friends since I got back!! Lassenroe has to be seen to be believed its truly a beautiful place...I have recently returned from a world trip and stayed in some very nice places but very few have the charm that these cottages offer.! They have everything you could wish for and have something for everyone and would suit young and old and even families! The area is so private and peaceful we wish we stayed longer!!!! 100% recommended,Peter and Anna are lovely and truly professional! Check them out on facebook!!!

My boyfriend and I stayed in Courtyard Cottage 2 for two nights last week. Could not fault it at all! The champagne, chocolates (Valentine's present!!!), tea/coffee/milk/etc left in the cottage for our arrival was a fantastic touch and just so thoughful!! Also the bathrobes provided were lovely! The cottage itself was very warm (too warm even - had to figure out how to turn off heating!!), cosy and so comfortable! The information left in the cottage was so helpful and useful to us during our stay. Ordered a Chinese delivery the first night from one of the menus left and the second night we went to one of the restaurants Anna and Peter had recommended in their guide. The one thing I found to complain about was the early check out; normally 10.30am but we got a late check out of 11.... I understand the need for this as the cottage needs to be cleaned but still it's very early! And the best till last - the jacuzzi bath was amazing!! Dying to go back to Cottages for Couples and hopefully will be soon!! :)
