Excellent quiet place to escape
On arrival we were met by the very friendly Richard who gave us our keys and showed us around the house and also gave us some very useful advice on places to shop and eat and drink. This is a well equipped spacious property, which is well maintained and clean with plenty of space for two families and no shortage of bathrooms. Location is quiet and very rural with the lovely village of Bunclody nearby, where there are a few shops & restaurants. The views from the property are beautiful and it’s well worth a walk up Mount Leinster which can be seen from the house.
Excellent base for those taking Rosslare ferry
A great base for exploring Southern Ireland and enjoying peace and quiet with a beautiful view. The owner & our contact for keys could not of been more helpful.
Amazing place with most stunning views.
This house is amazing, with the most stunning views. Out in the country so a vehicle is a must.
The house itself, is spacious, clean and had everything you could want. Wooden floors throughout, but as another visitor said I agree it could do with some rugs purely to make a warmer feel and to possibly dull the noise down slightly especially on the stairs ( hence the 4 stars and not 5 but that’s personal opinion)
From the moment I booked on line Paul the owner ( who lives in Australia) was extremely helpful over e mail and couldn’t have done more for me with details of various recommendations locally.
When checking in Richard was lovely and again extremely helpful with local knowledge.
We had a problem with the TV whilst there and Richard popped straight round to see if he could sort it (he couldn’t but was through no fault of his own) because as you can see it’s quite an old system (New smart TV might be the way forward but then maybe I am being picky!) However the next day (Saturday) someone came out with Richard and it was sorted.
Gorgeous place which I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to friends and family (in fact I already have)
Oh and if a little tan coloured dog turns up at your door he lives in the first house on the left as you enter the lane. His name is coco and he often trotted in the house via the patio door if open! He is adorable and his owners said he’s run down the lane all summer. They couldn’t stop apologising and were lovely. However we didn’t mind in the slightest and were happy with our little visits every now and again.
Great place, get booking, you won’t regret it.
Thank you Elaine for taking the time to write such a wonderful review about your stay at our Holiday Home. We are so pleased that you and your friends enjoyed your stay . We very much appreciate your business and hope that you will return one day soon again..
We have seriously considered rugs on a few occasions but the issue of hygiene arose.
We get a lot of wonderful families with smaller kids and it would be impossible to keep them clean and in a hygienic condition. The wood floors are easy to keep clean and any particles of dirt show up easy.
Again many thanks.
