The Thatch
We were met at cottage and made to feel very welcome. Cottage very clean and comfy. Also bits and pieces in cupboard and fridge to get us started appreciated. Madison really over the moon with her Pepa pig ice pops. No hesitation in recommending the Cottage to anyone. Enjoyed by all.

Fabulous
Excellent location, cottage was brilliant, it had every mod con available, very clean as everything was new, great view all round, fabulous beach and mountain walks from the front door. Adara village near by with great pubs and restaurants, taxi available at very keen prices if venturing into Adara for a few drinks. Owners very helpful, on hand if needed. Highly reccoment the location and thatch cottage, perfect for a family, couple or girls holiday away. Loads to see and do. I will be back.
