Absolutely beautiful cottage! Everything is in the cottage that you would need as it would be at your own home! Lovely treats and wine left for us on arrival! Our dog cooper loved the cottage and it was great being able to bring him with us! He absolutely loved the sheep too! Very close to donegal town and other nice places to visit! Will definitely be back again! Thanks for an amazing holiday

What a great place to stay! We had a brilliant week in Donegal and the cottage was perfect for our needs. Beautifully decorated throughout and equipped with everything we needed. Great location for some fantastic beaches which our 2 dogs throughly enjoyed. Would definitely go back and could not recommend it more highly!

The owner was very friendly, met us when we arrived, left a welcome pack with a bottle of wine.. She assured us of her attention at all times should we need help with anything. The property was very clean and in good order. One of the toilets developed a slight problem with the cistern, and reported it to the owner. No problem what so ever. Highly recommended. The only problem we have now is finding time to return. Many thanks Sykes Cottages, for making it all so enjoyable.

Lovely cottage.. The owner was very helpful and accommodating. A very appreciated welcome pack awaited us upon our arrival and a cottage info booklet and operation manuals left to make living easy. Lovely quiet area and garden is enclosed for young children and dog. I look forward to planning another trip in the future and will definitely be interested in booking Summerhill Cottage again.

We loved the cottage and would go back.. The only thing missing was wifi, I brought a portable wifi with me to do banking etc but no signal to use it. We couldn't easily find checkout times on site so we were an hour late leaving the property and owners were knocking on the door, it was our fault for not checking beforehand

What a great place to stay it has everything you will need for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful setting minutes from the main road through Donegal but also far enough away from the same road for a peaceful relaxing holiday with beautiful walks through the countryside.. And only minutes from the sea. We arrived as was met by the owners who stayed just long enough to show us how everything worked and then they left leaving us their phone number just incase we needed anything. We then found that there was cakes, a bottle of wine and everything you need to make tea and coffee. We were so impressed by the cottage that we have booked again for 2020.

Fantastic holiday cottage.. A perfect home away from home. As soon as we drove up to it I knew we were in for a treat. Its a lovely little "old irish" cottage both inside and out with traditional features and a wood burning stove (unfortunately it was too warm in the house anyway to light so we will have to go back in winter). It has two well sized double bedrooms, one with an extra toilet and sink which we were not expecting. The kitchen living area is cosy and well laid out and the kitchen has everything you can think of - I challenge you to think of something it doesn't have....... To top that off is then a lovely sun room at the rear of the house with a dining table and lounge chairs looking onto a huge decked area and beautifully laid out garden. Perfect for a G'n'T of an evening! As if the stay couldn't be better, we were welcomed by Emily who had left us scones, fairy cakes and had even boiled the kettle! The cottage has an excellent selection of books, music and DVDs if you get time to use them as there are so many lovely walks and drives in the area. My favourite was to the pub which is about 5 min walk away - great Guinness. If you haven't stayed here then get it booked as you are missing out. This is a gem of a holiday cottage and we will be going back. Thank you Emily for your extremely warm hospitality.

Lovely cosy cottage in a gorgeous peaceful rural location.. Beautifully clean and well-equipped, the owners have thought of everything so you don’t need to. Emily welcomed us in person with delicious homemade scones and lemon cake and a freshly boiled kettle. The village is a great base from which to explore the stunning southern Donegal coast and its breathtaking mountain views and golden sandy beaches. Highly recommended - thank you for a wonderful holiday!

The cottage is lovely.. It's a good base for exploration of the area: Donegal town, Bundoran, Slieve League, Glenveagh National Park all easy to reach. The weather was great, so we had a barbecue, we spent time on Rossnowlagh beach, went up Slieve League, etc. We had good fun! Owners very friendly. We recommend Summerhill Cottage!

Summerhill cottage is beautiful.. I took my sister and a friend with our dogs Harley and Sasha. We were greeted by Emily who is lovely. The Cottage had everything we needed and more . It was well situated with a lovely beach only few minutes away. After Great Days Out we came home to a lovely wood burning stove it was so cosy. We are hoping to make a return visit

Mr & Mrs Stinton went above and beyond our expectations.. We left a bag behind and they kindly kept it and organised a suitable time to collect. Lovely baked scones and banana bread on arrival- absolutely fantastic hosts. We would recommend this lovely, cottage to others. I would be happy if my feedback was published under Julie, no surname attached to comment.

Fantastic hosts.. Superb cottage in lovely peaceful location. We arrived much later than expected and Emily and Sam very kindly waited patiently for us. The cottage had everything you could need and more and was very clean, tidy and comfortable. Not one negative thing to say about this little gem and lovely family that take great care of it. Thank you again Emily, Sam & Emma.

This was an absolutely beautiful cottage. We booked it for my parents for a weekend away. They totally loved it and wanted me to feedback how wonderful it was. The attention to detail second to none. They didn't want to leave. Please thank the hosts mum for making it such a wonderful stay for them.

I could not believe how tiny the cottage is. I heard a noise coming from the toilet and asked the keyholder to check it. She tried to dismiss my concerns and then finally admitted it was broken. The bedrooms are so tiny that you constantly hit your head and back when walking past the TV in the ensuite bedroom. (the room with the broken toilet) That bathroom also has no electrical outlet, and there is no place to do hair or makeup in the main part of the bedroom which was horribly small. There is no place to put your suitcase and still be able to walk around. The second bedroom has no TV. The washer and dryer are in a totally separate building full of bugs flying around. I emailed the keyholder shortly before we came to the cottage and was told there is a pub within walking distance. Not true. The pub is closed, and the keyholder knew it according to her husband who came the next day to temporarily patch the toilet. She also should have asked if we wanted a dining reservation in Mountcharles, because it was Saturday night, and tables at the only restaurant were booked. We got a tiny pub table by the door. There is a large room in the back of the house, but the way the house is built, it is inconvenient and looks like it was added on after the original structure. The furniture is strangely placed so the room just does not work. All of the furniture in the cottage is very uncomfortable including a small, plastic loveseat, although the beds were borderline. We left after four days, and we would not have made it a full week. Sad to report that this is an unacceptable rental at any price.

The cottage was really lovely, everything was provided at the cottage such as cooking utensils, towels etc. The cottage was convenient to Donegal town and a good spot for touring places of interest. Would recommend to family and friends.

The cottage was very well equipped and comfortable. In a quiet location convenient for Donegal town, and Mountcharles is good for shopping. The conservatory made a good sitting room.

It was very peaceful, no noise. 100 out of 100. Both my wife and I loved the log fire in the evenings, a great time to read. We enjoyed every moment.

We had a lovely time in the cottage - it was everything I hoped for and more. It was in a great setting - very homely and a great location to set off sightseeing from. The cottage was well stocked and we wanted for nothing. I have stayed in the area before and this cottage blew my previous accommodation out of the water!

It was home from home, everything we could have required was there, even had food in fridge/freezer and cupboards, and a plate of fresh home make scones and jam waiting for us on arrival. The location of the cottage was well well place for travelling the coast roads in either direction and only 6 miles from Donegal Town. We are already making plans to return again.

This lovely, comfortable, well appointed cottage is set in a peaceful rural location. it really is the ideal get away from it all destination. The cottage has a welcoming atmosphere, that allows you to immediately unwind. The location is ideal too, as it is only a short distance from shops and lends itself to the exploration of the magnificent coast and inland scenery. Our week flew by all too quickly, but we are planning to return as soon as possible. The welcome pack was exceptional, and the owner very friendly and helpful.

We stayed in Summerhill Cottage for a week in July 2014. I couldn't recommend it highly enough. We were greeted by Emily who was absolutely lovely and couldn't do enough for us! The scones, homemade cake, milk, butter & jam which are included in the welcome hamper certainly did not go unnoticed and were just what we needed after a long journey! There was even 2 bottles of wine chilling in the fridge for us! We had our 7 month old son with us and Emily kindly ensured that there was a travel cot, feeding chair and changing mat all ready and waiting for us. The cottage itself is in a great location and ideal if you wish to explore different parts of Donegal. It's fully equipped with everything you could possibly need to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The interior of the house is decorated in a traditional Irish cottage style with a woodburner in the kitchen. We were blessed with lovely warm weather so we didn't need to avail of the turf which was also provided. Umbeknown to us we'd left a pair of our son's socks behind after we'd checked out and Emily text us to let us know that she'd left them at a local shop for us to collect. Where else would you get that?? The only complaint I have is that we couldn't stay longer. We've stayed in loads of self catering accomodation before but it was the personal service and extra touches that set Summerhill Cottage apart from the rest. We hope to return as soon as we can! Thanks again.
