DescriptionSeodin is a luxury holiday rental with a truly breathtaking location near the village of Dunlewey in County Donegal. The cottage nestles between the foothills of the majestic Mount Errigal and the shores of Dunlewey Lake and it overlooks both the lake and the hauntingly beautiful Poisoned Glen.
The holiday home has been carefully designed to make maximum use of natural sunlight - and to enable the visitor to enjoy the stunning vistas outside. All 5 bedrooms together with the dining area and the living room enjoy breathtaking views of either glen, lake or mountain. A large raised decking area is an ideal place to enjoy this stunning setting.
The holiday home is beautifully furnished and decorated. Paintings by local artists adorn the walls and elegant staircase handrails are by the renowned craftsman Jonathan Ball. There is top class accommodation for 10 people in 5 spacious double bedrooms – with the possibility of an extra 2 being accommodated in a double sofa bed. There is underfloor geothermal heating with constant hot water and marble tiled floors throughout the cottage.
The holiday home is on a 1.5 acre site that slopes down to the shores of Dunlewey Lake – the fencing is designed to keep the Glenveagh Estate deer from enjoying the landscaped grounds! A nice feature of the garden is the patio area with sculpted granite furniture.
