Buncrana 4.9 miles.
Resting in the countryside village of Stranaclea, near the coastal town of Buncrana, is this detached cottage, Big Hill Cottage.
Set over a single storey and sleeping up to four guests, Big Hill Cottage is a rustic and romantic setting for your next County Donegal adventure, within easy reach of Londonderry and Letterkenny.
A long driveway invites you to the property with parking and lots of grass land surrounding the rustic white cottage, before you enter into the kitchen/diner where traditional beams remain in place and a woodburning stove offers a sense of comfort, so decided who the dedicated chef will be and gather round the dining room table to enjoy a home-cooked meal.
Continued to be charmed by the two character bedrooms, one double with an open fire and ample storage to unpack your belongings and one small double to escape to when the evening draws to a close, along with a revamped shower room.
Big Hill is the ideal hub for walking, with forest routes straight from the doorstep, as well as a short drive to Buncrana which is one of is one of Ireland’s most beautiful coastal destinations and it offers a wide variety of activities and attractions, and with a rich passion for the Arts it is renowned for its artistic heritage so there are many art studios and traditional craft workshops to visit where you can pick up a piece of local design and craftsmanship as a reminder of your Irish holiday, as well as shops, restaurants, pubs, bars, gardens and a golf course.
