Me and my partner just wanted a place we could relax and this was the perfect place. The owners Gary and Una were very pleasant and helpful, if there was anything we needed they were always about to help. The place offered privacy and a beautiful lake in front of the property, and the hot tub was relaxing and made the holiday perfect. The cabin had all the facilities you needed, will definitely be back soon.
Absolutely loved it! We stayed for 2 nights & it was the most relaxing weekend ever, Una and Gary are such lovely people. Can't fault it, it was perfect.
Having an interest in fishing this log cabin seemed ideal for a short break to celebrate my wife's birthday.
Took your wife fishing you may ask! She gave it a go and I had to drag her away from the lake to go for dinner, hooked!
Set approx 2K from the quaint little village of Ramelton it is off the beaten track but this only adds to the experience. On the site is the owners' main house, a larger log cabin sleeping 8 and our smaller cabin which was idea for all our needs. each cabin has it's own well maintained hot tub with full instructions given by Gary the Owner.
Remember your swimsuit (wink wink)
The cabin was clean, tidy and only metres from the private lake with the owners leaving us bread and milk to get us started. the lake is stocked with rainbow trout up to 3 or 4 lb weight and even bigger should you be lucky, only fly fishing is permitted with a eat what you catch or return. Gary kindly cleaned a trout for us, very tasty.
Although we could have cooked we checked out the Bridge Bar in Ramelton which serves food daily and the Guinness is great. The owners will even give you a lift into town should you wish for a glass of vino with a local taxi back.
Set in a beautiful location and with the next door cabin being just far enough away to offer a little privacy this is indeed one of the best self catering breaks we have enjoyed throughout Ireland.
Very well priced and proving popular so book well in advance!
Gary & Una were so hospitable even presenting my good lady with a birthday bottle to crack open in the hot tub. Better hosts you will have difficulty to find.
Ramelton has a bank machine and local shop for your needs, perhaps a couple of bars though our only visit was to the Bridge. The Lennon river which runs through Ramelton has a great name for fine game fishing.
Many many thanks to Gary & Una for all their help including patching me up following a tragic fishing hook incident.
Highly recommended, So good we have booked a return trip.

A great place to relax , Fishing in it's own private stocked lake or laying relaxing in its hot tub. Stayed in the smaller cabin , very clean and everything you need including wifi and sky tv. The owners Gary and Una are very nice people, Would love to go again soon
Amazing place to stay so relaxing and peaceful. Gary and Una were very welcoming, couldnt do enough for you. Came into cabin heat was on, candles lit, had bread, sugar, milk, tea, coffee, butter all waiting for us. Hot tubs a bonus looking on to the lake. Was just home an hour and already booked our next break away. Look forward to seeing use again.
