About this property

Sligo 6.1 miles. Perched in an elevated position, just outside of the popular town of Sligo, County Sligo, is The Lake Cottage. Perfect for a couple or solo traveller this characterful cottage offers a welcoming space for a peaceful break, with local woodland walks, views of Lough Gill, and a toasty woodburning stove, this cottage is ideal all year round. Stone steps lead you up to the cottage, where exposed stone walls create a traditional appeal to an Irish home-from-home. Enter the kitchen/diner, fit with all the appliances you need for a self-catering stay, along with a corner dining table where you can catch up on the day's events over dinner. From here, the sitting room invites you to cosy up with your loved one in front of the woodburning stove while you flick through the channels on the TV. When sleep calls, venture off to the double bed and rest your head before a day of exploring your surroundings, and when you wake, the shower room offers a walk-in shower so you can freshen up. Outside, take advantage of the shared garden, home to a fire pit and barbecue, so you can dine al fresco and enjoy the picture-perfect views of Lough Gill and the mountains.

    Ideal for two people. Amazing views - especially for stargazing. Minor peeve - I am only 5'1" and the kitchen shelves and some switches (and kitchen seating) were probably sited for someone taller. Also a bedside lamp would have been useful. Apart from that, we had a brilliant time and will be back in the future.

    The facilities in the cottage were fine for our needs, although some things could be improved to make it even better. The bench seat in the kitchen/dining area was a bit high and left my wife's feet dangling off the floor unless she perched on the very edge, a couple of dining chairs would be nice. The storage jars for tea, coffee and sugar were on a shelf that was too high to reach, as was the fire blanket and extinguisher. I had to use a small, but sturdy, lamp table from the living room to climb up to reach and bring down the blanket and extinguisher to put them in a more accessible place where I hope they are left for future guests safety. In the bedroom a couple of bedside tables holding bedside lamps would be appreciated as the only lighting in the room is the overhead light. Personally I would change the large drawer chest for a single wardrobe to replace the open hanging rail and put a narrower set of drawers between the windows. Brian was wonderful and coped exceptionally well with the unexpected problem with the water supply, hope it's all ok soon. I hope these comments are taken in the spirit of constructive criticism that they are meant as the cottage is wonderful and just needs a few tweeks to exploit it's full potential. Thanks for making our stay memorable. Slàinte Peter and Cathie McMahon Kirkintilloch Scotland.

    The cottage was amazing, very clean and excellently presented and absolutely everything was provided, even milk in the fridge! We found the property to be way beyond our expectations and set in a wonderful scenic and quiet location. We were also blessed with wonderful weather for the whole of our 7 day stay which was a bonus. We have no hesitation in recommending this wonderful cottage to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing stay in beautiful surroundings.
