Also perfect for exploring to the...

We stayed in the studio as the cottage was booked. Beautifully set out and more than I expected. Owners just wonderful, friendly and welcoming. We had a big wooden made table and chairs overlooking the cliff top to the steeples rocks, so we had nibbles and bubbles there before heading to the Star Tavern, 3 mins walk? a must to...

We'd booked these cottages anticipating meeting up in time for the evening view but a diverted flight meant a late arrival. None the less, the hosts were very friendly and helpful and the cottage was a comfy rest for the night. In the morning the views of the Steeples Rocks out to sea from the garden were stunning. A great...

We stayed for 1 night in the studio in February. The views and the garden were stunningly beautiful. The accommodation was great; clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for our short stay. The breakfast provided was simple but as described and perfectly adequate. Pauline was an excellent host. She recommended we eat at the Star Tavern which was a...

Spent one night in the Steeples studio. The cliff-top setting is absolutely stunning and the grounds are gorgeous! The owners maintain a spectacular garden between the living quarters and the cliff with the beach and rock shoreline precipitously located below. Offshore and within view of the house, there are some impressive rocks jutting out of the sea with waves crashing...

Having travelled for 12 hours to arrive in Westport for the weekend, we found out when we arrived that we had to travel back for a family emergency. We found Pauline and Bruce not only incredibly friendly but also very understanding of our situation. It was lovely to arrive to the warm, well appointed cottage and although it was dark...
