Brilliant!!! 5 Star Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Elaine was a wonderful host and the cottage was HUGE and absolutely beautiful. Our family of 5 stayed there for 2 nights and I wish it had been a week. Home baked cupcakes, views of rolling hills with cows and calves. Elaine went above and beyond to help us find a whale watching tour guide and give us any other info we were looking for. I would definitely go back and highly recommend. It's only a couple of minutes drive from the town centre but out of the way enough to be completely peaceful and surrounded by country views. Thanks!!

Country living with perks!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our first trip to Northern Ireland. We both wanted something remote but still close to Derry and the Northern Ireland sites! The Bredin's were great hosts, making sure we had what we needed and entertaining with great conversation. The cottage was well kept, great beds, spot on advice for activities, and a cozy fireplace. We loved our stay and will be back again!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay. A working dairy farm, Ii is situated in a beautiful valley with green fields and nature all around but within a 10 minute drive of Derry city center. Elaine and Robert were perfect hosts, going out of their way to help, even going so far as to take us to the bus when we were taking a trip and picking us up again. The cottage was beautifully kept and quiet. We will definitely stay there again when we return to Derry.

Fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

Without a doubt our favorite place to stay during our visit! Perfect for families! I have four kids (1,3,6, and 8) and they were SO accommodating with our specific needs. The fact that it is actual working diary farm is incredible! The house itself was very spacious, clean, and nicely decorated. It is very quiet. You definitely need a car, but it is worth the few minutes into town to have such beauty around. Would go back in a second!

Hervorragend

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren als Familie eine Woche im Cottage auf der Farm von Elaine und Ihrem Mann. Dass Cottage ist perfekt ausgestattet, es gibt alles, was ein Ferienhaus benötigt im Überfluss, auch für den Start reichlich Verbrauchsutensilien. Das Haus ist riesig, auch sechs Personen haben wirklich kein Platzproblem.

Das Haus war sehr sauber, gut sortiert auch von den technischen Geräten her völlig in Ordnung. Das Haus liegt ungefähr 6 Km von Derry entfernt in den Hügeln südlich, der nächste TESCO ist 4 Km weg.

Wir wurden schon bei der Ankunft von Elaine sehr herzlich begrüßt, mit Informationen über Trips in die Umgebung überschüttet, im Haus liegen dazu noch massenhaft Karten und Prospekte zur freien Verfügung. Zwischendurch haben wir uns immer wieder mit Ihr nett unterhalten - klasse Betreuung.

Wir haben das Haus als Standort für Trips in NI und Donegal genutzt, dafür liegt es strategisch gut. Einziger Nachteil - die nächsten Pubs sind 6 Km weg....

Wir bedanken uns ganz herzlich bei den Gastgebern, wir würden das Haus für solche Zwecke jedem empfehlen.
