“Fabulous family cottage! Very relaxing!”
Reviewed 2 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed here over the long easter weekend with our 2 children 4 and 7. The cottage has everything you need. We loved the slept in bunk beds which they loved. We went for a meal at the local pub The Anchor which has a restaurant upstairs and can highly recommend. The food and staff were excellent. One thing there is no Wifi or phone signal however I found that a nice change! Would definitely return.

“Relaxing break”
Reviewed 2 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Cosy little cottage next to harbour. It had everything you needed for a home away from home. It was great to be able to take our dogs, as this is usually a problem when renting cottages. Beautiful little village, which is peaceful and ideal for getting away from it all. We would definitely go back. Hopefully weather will be better next time, so we can enjoy the garden also.

“Could be better !”

Overall a nice cottage but could be improved. Double bed is extremely uncomfortable due to the poor quality mattress and no mirror anywhere other than the bathroom making hair drying very difficult.
Microwave turntable does not work and the appliance wobbles all over the place !
Lovely fishing village and cottage is lovely but could be improved for little expense and this would make for a much better and more comfortable experience .
The Anchor pub in the village, less than a 5 minute walk from the cottage is to be highly recommended for its food.

Hello Christine, after your stay we had a long term tenant and changed the mattress, it should be more confortable now.

“Cosy little cottage in super fishing village”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a good time staying at this nice little cottage. We found the cottage to be well equipped and homely. Johnshaven has huge character and lovely coastal walks. The Anchor Pub, 1 min away, was especially good - highly recommended.
