    “A lovely, well equipped cottage with splendid, ever-changing views across the lake and mountains.”

    Very comfortable. Owner very helpful and effected a quick repair when there was a problem with a shower. Handy for Waterville beach, shops and restaurants. My family and I had a wonderful week there. Hadn’t used Sykes before and was impressed with their efficiency and organisation. Would definitely recommend both Lakeview and Sykes.

The property

Surrounded by mountains and overlooking a peaceful lake in the village of Waterville, County Kerry, is this charming bungalow, Lake View.

Just a short distance away from an unspoilt beach and on the Wild Atlantic Way whilst enjoying fantastic views of the natural scenery, this three-bedroom holiday home is an ideal base for a family or six friends.

Be greeted by off-road parking and a dramatic landscape before making your way inside to discover an entrance hallway where you can leave your shoes and jackets.

Step into the open-plan living space, home to a roaring fire which you can rest up besides with a hot chocolate in hand.

Rustle up hearty meals in the kitchen, courtesy of the electric oven and hob; when dinner is dished settle down at the dining table to tuck-into a treat.

Soak in the setting from the large windows or unwind in the enclosed garden with a barbecue to toast marshmallows as the sun begins to set.

As the weather cools, retire inside and take your pick between a double, a family room with a double and a single, as well as a delightful twin bedroom.

Awaken tired eyes with a rinse in the shower room or indulge in a bubble bath in the family bathroom before rummaging round the garage to grab a bike or a bodyboard to test the waves.

Visit Waterville Beach for a blend of sand and stone, where you can enjoy a picnic as the waves crash before you, or pack your clubs with two superb golf courses to choose from.

The owners have also left fishing rods so why not explore the picturesque Kerry Way for a quiet fishing spot, or if that's not for you, hop aboard a boat for a trip to Skellig Rocks to enjoy exquisite views.

Whilst here also enjoy the Skellig experience which is where Star Wars was filmed.

Head to the historical town of Cahersiveen, here you can tour the ancient remains of The Old Abbey of the Holy Cross, enjoy a guided tour to sink in the town's past or taste delights at a wine bar.

For a majestic escape to County Kerry, choose Lake View.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
