"Great cottage, positioned perfectly in a special place."
This cottage has everything you need. Very well laid out. The decanter of whisky is a nice touch. The owner is great to deal with, even offering an extra night when there was a problem with the ferry's due to bad weather.
Many thanks for taking the time to review our cottage Phil. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at Nia Roo and our lovely island. It was a good choice for a last minute short break.

"Lovely cottage in a lovely area."
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay during the Islands festival week. The lovely cottage is light and airy and equipped to a high standard. The back garden is secure so it's good for any four legged visitors.
Being centrally located it has shops and restaurants within a few minutes walk, while also allowing easy access to the rest of the island.
We have already booked our next visit to the cottage.
Hi Richard & Gilly
