“Wonderful cottage - great location”

We have just stayed in Cecils cottage on the last week in August. This beautifully renovated cottage brings with it a wealth of old world charm and modern convenience. It is beautifully located with stunning views of Lough Swilly. We have great memories of swimming, bodyboarding and rock pool hunting on the beautiful beach. The coastal pathway which takes you into Buncrana ,starting just next to the cottage, ( approx 30 mins good pace walking)is also a lovely walk and provides a welcome activity in the midst of a chilled out holiday.
It is also easy to arrange taxis into Buncrana and sample the excellent restaurants / pubs which Buncrana has to offer. We discovered a few lovely strands with playparks close by as well as the beautiful Glen House tearooms and waterfall walk.
This beautifully located / appointed cottage provides a great location for a family holiday and we are intending to book again for next year.
As other reviewers have said the owners are extremely helpful and very welcoming. Would have no hesitation in recommending this to others .
