What a fabulous house and location! The house is beautiful and so coay.

5 of 5
The house is so welcoming, as soon as we arrived we lit the fire and felt immediately at home. It has everything that we needed and more. The views as we sat at the kitchen table out to the garden and the sea was beautiful. We enjoyed the welcome bottle of wine and were warm and cosy. We loved the nautical theme and the beautiful flowers that greater us in the garden and in the house. It was s fabulous weekend and we didn't want to leave! We will be back.

Beautiful barn in a beautiful location

5 of 5
I was so touched by the warm welcome I received on my late arrival. It is such a cosy, restful place in a truly stunning location. And the bed had the best mattress I've ever slept on! Wonderful place!

Excellent time!

4 of 5
We had an excellent time in Castletownshend. 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.
