We wanted to thank you for the wonderful weekend we spent at your cottage!
Hi Ann, we wanted to thank you for the wonderful weekend we spent at your cottage! In the house we found everything we needed and the view through the window is simply magnificent. We are definitely coming back in the winter. Was wonderful to discover Co. Donegal and know that we had a lovely place to come back to. Thanks.
M and H,
A constant reminder of our unforgettable time
Thank you so much. We had a wonderful stay. We found a very small kitten in the hedgerow a few hundred yards from the cottage which we are bringing home with us…… a constant reminder of our unforgettable time.

Thank you for the stay, it was wonderful with my girlfriend. The cottage is very nice inside, very cosy and the view is beautiful – I’m going to miss that large window. If we manage to get time off we will be back over the winter months. Thank you
