Guest access

Guests have the cottage to themselves, and access to the cottage garden and that of the main house.

Interaction with guests

When we are at home, we meet guests in person when they arrive. Guests are welcome to come up to the house with any queries. Sometimes we might be away when guests arrive and we then make arrangements for them to be met by a friend of ours. If this is not possible we will leave the property accessible for them when they arrive.

Other things to note

Parents of young children should be aware of the safety of their children at all times especially as there are some ponds at the property.

The cabin is cute, remote and a little bit rustic. Short drive to Waterford and Kilkenny. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Elspeth is a kind hostess.

The place was great except the WiFi was a separate fee...not expensive just not convenient. Elspeth was kind and responded quickly to all of our questions

A really lovely place to stay! Very welcoming and location is great! We really appreciated the 'fresh from the garden' greens etc. Would recommend a stay here and also a meal at Mannions!
