"diamond in donegal"

Cottage is really convenient to donegal town and local attractions. Well signposted and easy to find. Great standard of accommodation, everything catered for, the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, and the cottage is spotless. There are plenty of activities within the local area to keep everyone happy. The cottage really is a home from home, this is the second time we have stayed here and we will certainly be back, wouldnt consider staying anywhere else as Rosswood meets all our expectations and more. Cant wait for our next trip.

Thank you so much Marina for your kind Words and I really am delighted you love the Cottage and indeed the Area as its so Scenic and beautiful..
With lovely local country walks on your Doorstep and of course Donegal Town been a short distance away. Look forward to meeting you next trip.

"A well-presented holiday home in a beautiful setting and a warm welcome."

The cottage was very well presented and had all the gadgets and gizmos to make a holiday stay feel more like being in your own home.
The owner Gareth was very accommodating and welcoming and was very happy to give suggestions and recommendations.
The location setting was peaceful and beautiful but not ideal if you want to be within walking distance of the town.
We loved the amazing views but missed wardrobes with hangers (!)
All in all a very enjoyable stay in a beautiful part of the world.

Thanks for the Positive Feedback .. Cottage is located 4km from Donegal Town as advertised. Not suitable for walking to Donegal Town. I now have installed a Wardrobe in the Utility Room with Coat Hangers. Thanks for the Feedback and delighted you enjoyed Rosswood Cottage..

"Fabulous stay!"

I stayed in Rossdale Cottage 14th June 2023 for 3 nights with my parents and my young baby. I can fault nothing with our stay from start to finish. Gareth is a most accommodating host who really goes out of his way to assist in any way he can. A very well equipped cottage, everything you could possibly need for a self catering stay. Spacious, comfortable rooms and a most peaceful, tranquil setting. We will return to this cottage without fail and will recommend to family and friends!
