Just come back from a week in Croan Cottages. My wife and I had a great time and will definitely be back someday - most likely with some friends and their families.
Facilities are great - farm animals roaming about the place, all you need for a relaxing break.
In my opinion, some of the comments on the site are accurate. Wireless broadband availability was hit and miss (if expecting to work while on hols, this is probably something you should bear in mind). But who works on holiday??
We found Niamh and Francis to be very friendly, but not intrusive - guess they are mindful of encroaching on privacy and comfort of their guests. No problems finding them if we needed anything. While some might find the booklet to be rules oriented, we found it invaluable to guide us to the many amenities in the area (of these, Woodstock Gardens I would highly recommend).
All in all, a very positive experience that has converted me to self-catering holidays - not something I would have even considered before!
thanks to Niamh and Francis for the wonderful experience!
