Cosy authentic cottage
We had such a lovely stay here, two traditional turf fires which Thomas our super friendly host kept well stocked through the week. The cottage is situated just up the road from beleek and only a five minute drive from ballyshannon (great pubs/traditional music) and rossnowlagh which is a brilliant surf spot. Great space outside for bbq's and house has everything you'd need for a quite break away from it all. Will definitely be back! Cheers Thomas and Sadie

Cottage mit viel Flair und sehr netten Vermietern
Wir waren zu viert mit unserem Hund im Cottage und haben dort eine sehr schöne Zeit verbracht. Das Cottage strahlt ein sehr tranditionelles Flair aus, was insbesondere an der historisch angehauchten Kücheneinrichtung, den Öfen und der liebevollen Einrichtung lag. Hinter dem Haus befindet sich ein Garten und die Möglichkeit bei gutem Wetter zu essen. Unser Vermieter - Thomas - war sehr nett und hat uns mit zahlreichen Reisetipps zur Region versorgt und darüber hinaus viel über die Geschichte der Gegend berichtet. Schließlich gefiel uns die regionale Lage des Häuschens. Wir waren nur zwei Kilometer von Nordirland entfernt und konnten am wundervollen Lough Erne wandern gehen. Außerdem lagen wir im Süden von Donegal einem sehr schönen und untouristischen County und auch Sligo und Mayo waren nicht weit. Daher konnten wir gar nicht alle Ausflügsziele besuchen. An dieser Stelle noch einmal vielen Dank für den netten Aufenthalt. Viele Grüße senden Chris, Matthias, Peter, Karolin, Namora We visit the house with four persons and our dog and spended a very nice time there. The cottage exudes a very tranditional flair, which was especially due to the historically touched kitchen furniture, the ovens and the loving furnishings. Behind the house is a garden and the possibility to eat in good weather.Our landlord - Thomas - was very nice and provided us with numerous travel tips to the region and also a lot about the history of the area. Finally, we liked the regional location of the cottage. We were only two kilometers from Northern Ireland and could walk on the wonderful Lough Erne. We were also in the south of Donegal a very beautiful and untouristic county and also Sligo and Mayo were not far. Therefore we could not visit all the destinations. At this point again thank you for the nice stay. Many greetings send Chris, Matthias, Peter, Karolin, Namora

Belleek cottage with charm
We stayed for the long Easter weekend in cookies cottage with our dog Alfie. The cottage is well equipped and Thomas and Sadie were more than helpful. Thomas even arranged for a tv engineer to come out and fix the satellite tv that had gone off. Nice enclosed back garden. Minutes from belleek town and very close by car to the local beaches and tourist attractions. The only negative is that the cottage is set directly on a very busy main road which makes walking into town rather dangerous. All in all a great wee place and very well equipped. Keep up the good work Thomas and Sadie

Beautiful cottage in a great location!
A truly cosy traditional cottage with all the convenience of a modern holiday home. Hosts were excellent; very welcoming and helpful. The open fire and stove were set for our arrival and generous supplies of turf and logs were provided. We brought our two little dogs and there was tonnes of space for them outside, which was a real bonus! One of the key selling points for us was the location of the cottage as it is in close proximity to Belleek, Ballyshannon, Bundoran, Donegal town, Sligo, etc. and (best of all) Rossnowlagh beach! There are also several fantastic places to eat, such as The Forge in Belleek, which, for us, just made the holiday complete!

Gemütliches Cottage
Das Cottage ist mit Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet und die schöne Fassade mit dem üppigen Blumenschmuck fällt sofort ins Auge. Der Besitzer Thomas war sehr freundlich und hat uns bei unserer Ankunft gleich die beiden Kamine angefeuert, besonders schön ist der alte Küchenofen mit den traditionellen Utensilien. Auch der Wohnbereich ist sehr gemütlich und das Haus hat nach hinten einen großen abgeschlossenen Garten mit Gartenmöbeln, Grill, Wäscheleine und man kann auch das Auto hier parken. Für sechs (oder wie angegeben sieben Personen) ist das Haus zur Zeit leider nicht richtig geeignet, da das untere Bad unbedingt einer Sanierung bedarf, das Bad im Obergeschoss ist aber neu. Der Esstisch in der Küche ist nur für 4 Personen geeignet, deshalb haben wir uns den großen Gartentisch in die Küche geholt. Auch ist nicht genügend Geschirr und Besteck für 6 Personen vorhanden, da sollte mal wieder etwas angeschafft werden. Wir hatten dieses Cottage ausgesucht, weil es im Gegensatz zu den neuen Ferienhäusern Tradition und Charme ausstrahlt und so war es auch wirklich. Wenn noch einige Dinge verbessert werden (siehe oben), dann ist es wirklich ein Schmuckstück.

Very good for beach or lake locations
My Family have just come back from a week at this holliday home, the house was very clean. We were let in by sady. who was very helpful telling us about local thing the see and do. We were at Rosnowlagh beach most days because the family love to body board. Bleek Potery is just 5 min drive, so we spent a lovely couple of hours there. Donegal Town and Bundoran are also close by. Later in the week there was a porblem with one of the toilets, it was fixed the same day. Our two dogs loved the large back garden which is fenced and secure with gates and we also could park the car there too. as i am a weelchair user the house was a little small but it was accessable with help.

Wonderful Cottage with Top class Irish Hospitality.
This was a great place to stay. Beautiful cottage, great location to Surrounding areas such as Donegal, Enniskillen, Bundoran and being near the border is great for seeing the contrast of towns. The cottage oozes old class charm with all the modern convieniences. This building has been modernised to a high standard. Being new to the holiday market, i think it is a gem of a place to stay. The Owners Thomas and Sadie are two of the nicest people you are likely to meet. Welcoming, informative and really make you feel so at home and at ease. Some of the best hosts ive had the pleasure to meet. Always just a phone call away had we needed anything. This place is perfect for an intimate getaway or a small group excursion. Thomas welcomed us with two roaring fires, both stove and open fire, perfect for what was a typical Wet Irish day. The rooms are a good size and a good outdoor patio area for BBQs and fun. I will most definately will come back to this place and look forward to seeing Thomas and Sadie again. PS.Thomas, Keep up the great work folks. Your doing great!
