We decided that having a "home base" would be easier on our three kids than a hotel but were afraid a typical B&B might be too genteel for our active boys. We found the perfect solution in renting "Cooper's Cottage", a lovely self-catering cottage owned by Stella and Eamonn Long of Rathellen House B&B. The cottage is directly across the street from the B&B. The cottage was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The 2 full bathrooms were modern and the kitchen was well equipped. Stella made us feel very welcome with a basket of tea,coffee and homemade cookies. She even lent us a book with great suggestions on things to do with kids.
