We very much enjoyed our stay at Willowfarmhouse. Very comfortable accommodation & good location for visiting beauty spots, beaches etc. Owners & their son very helpful & nothing was too much trouble for them.

"It felt like coming home."
We had a lovely, warm welcome from John and Dolores. The home-made bread was delicious and much appreciated on arrival. The turf fire in the sitting room was delightful and made things very cosy in the evenings. The turf was replenished regularly by the turf fairy. The farmhouse is very spacious and coped easily with our party of nine. The food in the local pub, The Travellers' Inn," was fantastic and great value for money, unfortunately they only served food at the weekend, as it was off season. The house is located close to the town but in a quiet and idyllic setting. All in all, a fantastic place to re-charge the batteries and we would all hope to return in the not too distant future. Thank you both for your hospitality.

"The house is a large, spacious, well kept property suitable for a large number of people."
We were welcomed by the owners and shown the property, We were reassured that should we need anything he was available. A beautiful touch was a large home made scone of bread and 12 farm fresh eggs left in the kitchen- it was really appreciated. We were also given a constant supply of turf for the open fire in the living room- a really homely touch. We were having a family wedding from the property and found it to be very suitable both for space on the morning of wedding and also for accommodating the guests whom we entertained after the reception.
The house is located a short distance outside of Milford and although private with beautiful views it is not isolated.
Really enjoyed our stay and the house was admired by the people who visited us.
