The cottage was great, had all the basic requirements and was comfortable. The only downside was that there was no central heating, just electric heaters (you are charged for the electricity at the end of your visit) and a log burner that heated the pipes - there no logs. We had to forage for fire wood on our first evening just warm up the cottage by a few degrees. I would recommend this cottage to family and friends and would definitely come back.

I don't think I have ever been anywhere as beautiful as this little slice of heaven before! The cottage was immaculate and had every appliance we could need during our 5 day stay. Whilst the cottage itself is old, the appliances are certainly not. We were able to wash and dry clothes, enjoy hot showers and baths, and store all of our food in the fridge with no worries at all. The cottage is situated in the rural village/hamlet of Ahakista and the true beauty of this area is that it is totally unspoilt. There is no noise pollution, just the sounds of birds and animals. The scenery is spectacular and everything you could need is nearby - from woodland, seaside to shops and restaurants. The children spent 5 days running around outside away from technology and the lure of TV, forgetting about the worries and pressures of school. My friend and I managed to read, colour, walk and explore and enjoy every second of our children. Listening to them laugh and play, engaging with nature and reading together is something that cannot be compared to anything. No amount of iPads, TV's or phones can even begin to match this type of joy! The cottage was cosy and warm, we made use of the lovely fireplace and spent a lot of time searching for fairies in the garden! We woke up to rabbits on the grass and the friendly dogs belonging to the neighbours sitting by the benches. We took walks to see the donkeys and to the nearby pub for lunch, we took spectacular walks to see the stones on the hill (the name escapes me!) and we read stories with our tea and toast. We left the cottage rosy cheeked, healthy and wishing the 5 days could go on forever. Cottons Cottage is our new love and I recommend this break to anyone and everyone. Artists, authors, parents, children, couples, workaholics, hikers... no matter who you are or what you do then Cottons Cottage is an absolute must!

If you want to get away from it all; this is it. This is raw, natural beauty. Pictures simply can't do justice to the sublime, tranquil view of the bay that this property feels like it owns all to itself. We, a family of four, have rented both the house and cottage for the last 10 years in the Summer. We're well travelled, but nothing compares with this location. Either property is perfect with children, they are on the beach in 30 seconds. Our children love rock pooling, swimming, kayaking and clambering over the rocks; especially to the near offshore island at low tide. There is none of the hassle of getting mucky children into a car or finding a toilet, it's all on the doorstep. We take out our kayak daily to catch mackerel, which go straight onto the BBQ. Fish don't come fresher than that. This year, we were lucky enough to be joined by dolphins and seals swimming around our kayak near the cottage, even though they were also after the mackerel! The quiet lanes around the area are adorned with wild flowers, dairy farms and idyllic panoramas of the dramatic Atlantic coastline of W Cork. Both properties are cosy and comfortable and have everything you need. The smaller property is a beautiful Irish cottage with ample room for 4. The larger property is huge with its top and front gardens, stunning terrace and panoramic flat roof. The internet works fine but don't expect mod cons here like a massive flat screen TV. It's not that kind of place. The Irish weather inevitably has its occasional risks, but take jigsaws, board games and baking stuff for rainy days. The children love it. Take wet suits to enjoy swimming in the sea for long periods and aqua shoes for rocks. The water is crystal clear and well suited to snorkelling. It's near Skibereen, where you can stock up on fresh, local supplies. Also near local villages with good pubs . Excellent fishmonger at Union Hall. A car is absolutely necessary. Enjoy it, but don't let too many people know! Once you've found it, you'll want to keep it a secret.
