Management response:

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review. Just a point to note on the fitted fire alarm, it was disabled due to a fault in the wiring but it was replaced by a stand alone fire alarm that was in the kitchen on top of the fridge and the fitted one upstairs worked as normal. Unfortunately our...

Glenhaven was the perfect Irish place to stay...a beautiful old stone house w a modern interior, situated on a lovely farm half mile from the beach. Elaine was an excellent hostess and my kids loved the sheep in the yard and watching the training of the new sheepdog. Would go back in a heartbeat!

10 of us stayed here over a week and we couldn't have picked a better place. The kids were straight into the garden which meant us lot could put our feet up whenever we were in. Plenty of things to do nearby and reasonably priced even for families. Absolutely spotless and I'm a clean freak at home!!! Both owners checked...

Additional Rate and Availability Information
Due to the size of the house and to be energy efficient, electricity and oil are metered and charged for separately. This prevents us from putting an extra 'blanket' charge onto every booking to cover these charges, so smaller groups are not unfairly paying more than they would use. The charges are required to be paid for on departure. Towels can be provided for a small fee, these are hired and laundered from an outside company.
£150.00 security deposit will be required with all bookings, this deposit will be held by holiday lettings and refunded 1 week after departure provided no damages have occurred.

Forestside cottage will accommodate a further 6 guests if required, please request this when inquiring about Forestside House.

Please note! Bookings for Hen nights or stag nights are encouraged and must be declared as we will require a higher security deposit.

Pets will incur a charge of £6.00 per night if accepted. This is because we request a deep clean after pets have s...
