“Charming and Relaxing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2011

We recently returned from two weeks in Ireland, staying at 6 different locations throughout the southern half of the country. As we had our two daughters with us, it was somewhat challenging to find B&B's with beds for 4 people in a room. We reserved the family cottage at Grove House, and upon arrival were pleasantly surprised by the accomodation. It is a charming well-appointed two bedroom unit with a central living area that includes a kitchenette and eating table. The country decor and special halogen lighting throughout made this our favorite stay of the entire trip.

The cottage is located on a small property that is surrounded by farms and small winding roads. At one time this was part of a larger estate which is located down the road. It is very quiet, scenic, and restful. There isn't much nearby, unless you drive 10 minutes into Skibbereen.

Unfortunately we were only planning to stay 1 night. As we departed, my daughters asked to stay longer, just to "hang out" in the cottage.

Complimentary champagne waiting in the room .... nice
Robes & slippers waiting on our beds .... nice
Breakfast served in our cottage .... nice

The only reason I wouldn't rate it a 5 is because the bed mattresses were too soft in the queen room and too hard in the kids room (which has 2 single beds on the floor and 1 single bed up in a loft... which my daughter enjoyed.)

Room Tip: Plan to spend some time just hanging out here

For sheer bliss, leave the kids at home, turn your mobile off and enjoy each other's company......what could be better than finishing off your day in a nice hot tub, in the privacy of your own balcony......try it and see!

You're out in the country but near enough to a town in case you have essentials to buy. Far from the madding crowd in the peace and tranquility of your own little self - contained cottage.

Room Tip: For sheer value try Cottage 1 with its own hot tub

I can only add to the previous comments in relation to cottages for couples. My partner and I stayed in Lassanroe Cottages and I can only say that it was fantastic. The cottage was amazing, not to mention the outdoor hot tube and bedroom Jacuzzi. The setting was serene, tranquil and very peaceful; a very relaxing break.

Prior to our initial booking, tragic circumstances occurred among our close circle of friends. We contacted Anna and Peter to inform them of the situation and to, with regret, cancel our booking. I cannot emphasise enough how accommodating and emphatic Anna and Peter were. I can only thank them for their understanding. We rescheduled our booking at a later date and must say that Lassanroe cottage is a credit to Anna and Peter. It is absolutely fabulous!

The facilities are second to none with sky tv, dvd player, cd player, Jacuzzi, hot tube, fully fitted kitchen with everything you need. In addition we were greeted with a bottle of bubbly and a dinner card which entitled the recipient to a free bottle of wine if you dined at one of the various restaurants recommended. However we preferred to enjoy our surroundings and ordered a takeaway which was delivered from one of the eatery’s listed in the information brochure.

We thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our only regret was that we did not book for a longer stay! But we will be definitely booking Cottages for Couples in the very foreseeable future. We have highly recommended the cottages for couples to all our family, friends and work colleagues and cannot speak highly enough of Anna and Peter’s Cottages for Couples.

For anybody considering Cottages for Cottages, you will most definitely not be disappointed.

My husband and I recently stayed in Cottage no. 2 at Grove House. If you are looking for a luxurious and relaxing break then this is the place! Peter and Anna, the lovely owners kindly left us a bottle of champagne which we happily drank in the jacuzzi just off from our bedroom. They also gave us a Diners Card which entitled us to a free bottle of wine in some of the restaurants in town. Its a great set up and Peter and Anna have done a great job creating a fabulous getaway. We will certainly be back again soon.
