Hard to fault this really excellent B+B run by Catriona and Shane. Great welcome, smart, comfortable rooms, full breakfast with homemade relish and jams, view of the river and ducks marching up for breakfast, with the ponies and foal nearby, lovely location. Nothing too much trouble. Evening meal in pub in Rathdrum, 10 minutes away. Wish we could have stayed...

Ashton House is family owned and run by a lovely couple who will do everything they can to make your stay wonderful, starting with tea (or coffee) and homemade pastries. They carry your bags upstairs to beautifully decorated, and very private, rooms. The view from ours was one of two rivers that converge nearby. The showers have plenty of hot...

We stayed in the Ashton House as the first stay in our Ireland holiday trip. It was a very good choice. We were welcomed by a good cup of tea/coffee and delicious cake/discuits upon arrival. THe room was clean and well equipped. The breakfast was amazing and the surrounding was beautiful. It is a good value for money. Would love...

This b&b gives the customer all what a b&b is expected to give plus some more. A lot of more. It starts with the beautiful surroundings accompanied by a peaceful stream and neighborly ducks. It continues with afternoon tea and biscuits (homemade of course), it continues some more with the room and great breakfast, and on top of it all...

I can't thank Catriona & Shane for a most welcoming visit & stay. Catriona kindly arranged for her husband Shane to meet us before the normal check-in as well as reserving a restaurant for us, Shane was more than helpful with recommendations & providing coffee & delicious home-made cakes & biscuits. The B&B has been renovated to a high-standard: the...

This is really a home from home. Set in very beautiful surroundings, this is a perfect place to get away from it all. The room was warm and spacious with very comfortable beds, and there is also a lovely lounge downstairs with comfortable sofas and a fire. The breakfast surpassed expectations. Overall, a fantastic place to stay, which we have...
