comfort and style

this cottage exceeded our expectations in comfort warmth and value. we were travelling with elderly parents and were delighted to find their bedroom was en suite which i had not seen in the write up so a walk in shower was ideal. Baileborough was a lovely town with great take aways and shops so all in all a good choice THANKYOU to Leslie and Angela for making us so welcome

Excellent property with everything you need for a self catering stay

4 of 5
This was our second visit to Trinity and we had a lovely relaxing week, dispite a hiccup with the water supply thanks to storm Ophelia! The water problem was solved very quickly with little disruption to our holiday. I would certainly recommend a stay here, and hopefully we will visit again within the next year.
