we just love the whole area of fanad and carrs cottage is perfectly situated. it shares a lane with a farm but is remote and the ideal place to relax. …
Perfect house in a perfect location!! We had a fabulous time at this property, there was place of space for the kids to play and it really was a home from home!! It was a great base to visit the local area, Downings beach and Salt Lake are two of the many place that is a must see when visiting this area....perfect!! …
Shiphaven View, Glassan, Carrigart
Superb family holiday home!
We have just come to the end of a fantastic 2 week stay in Shiphaven View with our two children (8 and 10) and the grandparents. Michael was there to greet us on arrival at the house, showing us around. The house was immaculately clean and looked even better than the pictures. The bedrooms are all generous in size and the communal kitchen/living area was spacious and perfect for spending time together. The dining area allowed us to eat while watching some stunning sunsets. The outside area was great for the kids. They enjoyed the swing set and the garden is so big we managed to fly our kites there too. The location is a perfect base for exploring the surrounding area. We had some great days at the beautoful Downings beach. This beach is fanastic for children, lovely, soft sand, crystal clear water and shallow. We also enjoyed the beach at Marble Hill. The Centra Shop is just a few minutes drive away and has everything you need. They also do some freshly baked pastries every morning. There are plenty of good places to eat nearby. We used the chinese take away in Carrigart twice. Of you don't mind a short drive, we also really enjoyed meals at the Singing Pub (8 minute drive away)and also the Cove in Dunfanaghy (25 minute drive but well worth it-book in advance though!) I could go on and on listing the beautiful places we visited. Michael's house is in a great location and you will never be ahort of something to do or somewhere to go. Likewise though, it is such a peaceful setting, you could just as easy spend days at the house taking in the view with a good book. The house is exceptionally well equipped with everything you could need. The hot water system was very easy to use, as was the central heating-although we never really needed that as the house holds heat well. All in all, a wonderful family holiday making great memories. We would absolutely return here and will be recommending to friends and family. …
