Recently spent two nights at Windmill Cottages. Pierre, the French owner, is absolutely delightful and we very much enjoyed a delicious dinner with him on our first evening. Beautiful location and houses have been very tastefully restored, with a slightly quirky feel to them. The new extension which houses the breakfast room is great, making the most of the sun and the views over the water. Enjoyed a lovely walk a short drive away, recommended by Pierre. Great place, and just a short drive to Westport.
