“Perfect In Every Way”
Reviewed 18 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Cannot recommend this cottage enough. Location is beautiful. Teresa has provided everything you could possibly need, even very unexpected things like having peat by the fire ready to light when we arrived. She is a pleasure to deal with, her directions were perfect and she even took the time to call by to make sure everything was ok for us.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

“Wonderful cottage”
Reviewed 8 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We just finished spending 5 nights in the cottage about 4 km north of Ardara. Teresa is a fabulous host and provided everything we needed including turf for a fire (my first time with a turf fire...great!). The home is in a lovely setting on the side of a small hill overlooking a valley. The 5 room home was as advertised and included all we needed. The kitchen was well equipped including small coffee maker. All-in-all, we are very pleased and highly recommend it.

“Lovely house, lovely stay. ”
Reviewed 6 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Just had a lovely stay at Hawthorn House.
The cottage is in a good location between Ardara and Portnoo on R261 near beautiful beaches and the Wild Atlantic Way.
The cottage is clean with plenty of towels provided and extra bedding for cold nights. Teresa had set a fire ready for us to light which was a lovely touch.
The kitchen is fully equipped with new cooker, fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee machine and washing machine.
Good place to stay while you take in the sites of this part of Donegal.

“Simple cottage - country location”
Reviewed 27 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Hawthorne House is a clean, simply furnished cottage. It has everything you need & the bedding & towels are good quality. It is a couple of miles outside the village. The owner was very helpful & obliging.

“Nice cottage, beautiful scenary - shame about the oven”
Reviewed 4 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed for 6 nights. The cottage is located on R261 between Ardara and Portnoo Our bed was very comfortable. There is a very good new power shower in the bathroom and a new flat screen TV in the sitting room. There is a great view from the kitchen diner window and the dining table is a good size.

The oven in the kitchen is appalling with the bottom rusted out and corroded hot plates; one of them emits smoke when you turn it on. If you can make do with a toaster, a microwave and two of the oven hotplates then you will be OK.

If (when) the oven is replaced this will be a great place to stay.
