Jane's bakery downstairs supplies croissants, Cornish pasties and much more. Lots of information available for things to do and places to visit, the beaches are wonderful. We had a lovely time, and will return.

This couple were very welcoming and explained how all the appliances worked very clearly. Everything in the house is spotless and beautifully arranged. The kitchen and laundry room are very well equipped as is the rest of the property. The living room has TV, radio and CD player and there are CDs of Irish music to set the right atmosphere. The evenings were cool during our stay and so we used the solid fuel (peat) stove heater in the living room. Tom was particularly helpful as he came around specially to show us how to light it and use it to heat the radiators and hot water. We appreciated the smell of the peat burning at night. Very cosy. For guests who are not peat fans, it is possible to use the oil heating. We stayed mostly within a radius of about 20 kilometres and there was plenty to visit. The scenery is absolutely magnificent and the view from the house is beautiful. We spent many moments just watching the changing light over the bay and mountains. Otherwise, there are plenty of walks nearby (Tom and Sheila had recommended some places to visit), and each time the views were splendid. This was certainly the best property we have ever rented and we would recommend it highly. If we decide to return to Waterville, this is where we would like to go.
