Practically Perfect!

We just returned from five weeks in Europe, staying mostly in vacation rentals. Drumcorn Farm Cottage was by far our best accommodation.

Elaine is a great hostess! We arrived late in the evening, but she was there to greet us. The cottage was warm, and she had kindly supplied breakfast items (bacon, eggs, bread, milk, butter and jam). She showed us around the lovely cottage, then left us to ourselves.

The cottage was bigger than we needed, but we did appreciate the two bathrooms (no sharing!). Everything was comfortable, neat and clean. Though set close to their working farm, the views from the windows were all beautiful (see photos). Note that there are the smells (and some flies) that accompany a dairy farm.

Elaine gave us helpful tips for shopping and checked often to see if we needed kindling or anything else. We also had fun with the family dog, Oscar.

I would not hesitate to return to Drumcorn cottage.

You do need a car to stay here, as it's 3 miles up a country road outside Derry, and you do have to accept the sounds and smells of a working dairy farm! Having said that, this cottage was perfect for us, with a garden and parking area outside, and a huge amount of comfortable space inside, stocked with absolutely everything we could need for our short stay. The owners were welcoming and very friendly, and even offered to pick us up from Derry one night if we didn't want to drive! There's a 24-hour supermarket and large out-of-town shopping centre on the road into Derry, and it's easy to drive into Donegal or to Northern Ireland's wonderful Atlantic beaches on the north coast. I heartily recommend it to anyone [except perhaps those dedicated 'townies' who prefer always to have a pub and a corner shop within easy walking distance!]
