We only spent one night here but wished it had been longer. We were greeted by Alison on our arrival with a pot of tea and beautiful home made shortbread. She showed us around the property and then to our room which was extremely comfortable with great views and had everything one could possibly want at hand.

We had pre booked dinner at the lodge and we were offered pre dinner drinks at 6.30 in the guest with Andre as host whilst Alison was merrily cooking our dinner in the adjoining kitchen. Dinner was beautiful and thoroughly enjoyed.

After dinner the lounge is a wonderful comfy room to relax in and look at the many books And magazines available.

Breakfast was lovely too and afterwards the little chat we had with Andre about our onward journey was very much appreciated.

This B&B is well worth a visit, thank you Alison and Andre for your hospitality and only wish we could have used the hot tub and also experienced a massage too, next time!

We stayed at the Bird's ferryman cottage for only one night, travel agent's shame, as it should be longer to enjoy the ambience of the place and hospitality of the hosts Alison and Andre. While the cottage was self contained with provisions, way beyond our needs, to prepare our own breakfast, we also enjoyed a delicious 3 course meal prepared by Alison and served at the lodge with lodge guests. Evening meal must be booked in advance!!! Breakfast supplies were all homemade or local produce. The garden was a joy to behold and pond ducks gave us many laughs as they begged to be fed. Cottage includes washing machine, dryer, dishwasher and microwave. Rooms spacious and well furnished, just drive in and enjoy the peace and solitude. We will be back if at all possible, thank you Alison and Andre

Room Tip: Didn't see the lodge rooms but suspect they as good as the cottage which has 2 bedrooms so would suit 2 couples or a family

We enjoyed our stay at Birds Ferry, particularly Allison's excellent cooking. Unfortunately rain kept us from seeing much of the property, but the views were beautiful. The room included a separate sitting area, which was very nice. Westport is a bit remote, but the area attractions make it worth the drive.

Bird's Ferry is a must when in Westport.
Allison and Andre are the perfect hosts. We were so sorry that we were only there for one night.
The most beautiful accommodations, delicious food, magnificent setting.
More than the comforts of home.
In the am Andre gave us wonderful places to stop at to hike as we moved down the coast.
A must place to stay!
