A thoughtful card, bottle of wine and packet of biscuits from the housekeeper with her mobile contact as welcome on arrival at this beautifully clean and very practical cottage catering for all our needs. The directions to the cottage were easy to follow and Kevin kept regular contact too. The views from the windows were stunning with the ever changing light over the sea and seals! It was so wonderfully relaxing for our girlie escape that we extended our stay a few days. The neighbours were very friendly so you instantly felt part of the small community. Would definitely be a place to bring the whole family. Lovely wee garden for kids to play or to sit out in the summer and watch the sunset. The beaches around were just stunning. We loved the ones by the airport but our favourites were the ones around An Cruit where we had our first picnic of the season. The Burtonport railway walk was great sheltered walk on a windy day too. Dunglow is a great town (great scone and advice at tourist info centre where you can also use internet if WIFI not available. We shopped in Supervalu including the delicious brown bread!
Many thanks Kevin for sharing your beautiful cottage with us and to Emma for maintaining it so well.
Had an great stay at the cottage. It has everything you need. The photos don't do the place justice. Bedrooms were all a good size and beds were every comfortable. Set on the coast you get the full force of the weather, but it made it all the better when you get back inside with the fire lit. Had 5 kids with us, who loved it and all the local beaches. Would recommend and intend to book again.
Stunning cottage. Well equipped with everything needed... Loved watching the seals out in the bay. Was lovely to curl up on the comfy sofas by the fire and just relax as the wind howled outside.
The cottage was really cosy and very well equipped. It was spotlessly clean and as described. The view was stunning and area very attractive. Beds very comfortable. I will certainly plan to return and introduce the beauty of seal cottage to them.
Such a wonderfully cosy cottage to come home to after battling the gaelforce winds and pouring rain when we stayed in seal cottage in October! The cottages location , 3 miles from Dungloe is perfect and the setting overlooking the sea is lovely. The cottage is very well kitted out and the turf fire is adds something special to it . We will definitely return !
Booking went pretty smoothly although felt a bit odd not to have any 'human' contact.
Loved the cottage and the whole environment. A perfect place.
Cottage very well equipped and clean.
Would definitely stay again.
