My husband and I were very fortunate to find this beautiful B & B while looking for accommodation in Ballydehob. We were greeted by Ann who made us feel at home from the moment we stepped inside the door of luxurious home. After only a few minutes, we were so relaxed that we felt we had known Ann all her life.
Our room was spacious with a very large comfortable bed and equally comfortable pillows which made for a great night’s sleep. The bed was covered with a beautiful crochet bedspread that I couldn’t help but admire and Ann explained that it was handmade. The bathroom was small but adequate and was spotlessly clean as was the rest of the house.
Before breakfast next morning, we went for a stroll to admire the lovely gardens which were filled with hydrangeas, red hot pokers and a variety of other flowers and trees. There was also a tennis court for anybody who indulged in the sport. Having enjoyed our stroll we made our way to the dining room to partake of a hearty breakfast. There was a great selection to choose from including cereals, yogurts and fresh orange juice which was followed by a full Irish breakfast, not forgetting Ann’s homemade jams, marmalade and brown bread.
Unfortunately, we had to leave after only one night but as we go to Ballydehob a couple of times each year, we will definitely be returning to Lynwood.
Thank you Ann and Brian for your warm hospitality and for making our stay such a pleasant one.
