The cottage is surrounded by farmland in all directions, making it an extremely private location for a holiday. It is accessed from the main Letterkenny to Glenties road by a long laneway. The large garden to the rear is enclosed by pine trees, and is ideal for children to play safely.
The cottage was built approximately 150 years ago, and was recently refurbished in 2008 with the additon of a bright new kitchen overlooking the rear patio and garden. The front of cottage is south facing, with the west facing patio and gardens open to sun from morning to late evening.
The cottage is situated two miles from Glenties village, in a remote location just off the main Letterkenny to Glenties Road. It is suitable for walking, cycling, fishing, golfing, or just taking it easy. There is a beautiful cycle route from the cottage to Glenveagh National Park, which follows virtually traffic free roads, with views of mountains, lakes, and rivers (see write up on owners website). There is also a hill walk to the nearby lake situated on the hill top behind the cottage. Information on these routes are available from the owner. Cycle hire can be arranged on request (including tandems).
