“The hosts couldn't have been nicer, nothing was too much trouble.”
The accommodation exceeded our expectations and it was great to be based at a working farm. My husband and I are both country reared and it was a joy to walk our Daschund around all the beautiful wee lanes. The weather was wall to wall sunshine and we spent a few days at Morriscastle Beach...again lovely. We went to Hook Lighthouse and Wells House and Garden, Kilmore Quay( where we had a fish meal in Kehoes pub/restaurant and it was beautiful...they even gave Denny a wee slice of roast beef and ...

We went to Hook Lighthouse and Wells House and Garden, Kilmore Quay( where we had a fish meal in Kehoes pub/restaurant and it was beautiful...they even gave Denny a wee slice of roast beef and a bowl of water)Wicklow,Wexford,Gorey,Enniscorthy and a lot of smaller villages in between. It is a very historical County and there is loads to do and see. It was one of the nicest holidays i have been on and my husband and I are talking about returning early next year all being well.- Mrs Polland, September 2020
“We had a wonderful time staying in Teach Beag.”
The cottage is lovely. It was comfortable and clean. The beds were great, in really good condition and the mattress and pillows were excellent and clean. The owners are lovely, friendly and helpful. We loved staying on a farm and seeing the animals. We were near gorgeous beaches and family activities like Wells House. Perfect place for a relaxed, comfortable, fun, family holiday.- Ms Murphy, August 2020
“The Cottage was in a nice location.”
However, it was not as clean as it should have been despite the fact that we couldn't chEck in until 5pm! This meant we lost out on a full day and we were asked to check out on the day of departure at 9am. We feel this was unreasonable, we paid for 7 days but we only got 6 days & when we booked the check-in time was 3pm & check out time was 10am! The cushions on the chairs were dirty, cups and dishes were cracked, the paint on the walls was soiled. There was no mop to wash the floor which was dirty and hadn't been disinfected. Overall the Cottage needs a good revamp! However, the beds were very comfortable and the location was very peaceful.- Mrs Lahert, August 2020

“Yes and I will share my video on facebook that I made of the lovely cottage we stayed at”- Mr Greer, May 2019
“Place was delightful the owners are extremely friendly”- Mr Greer, May 2019
“The landlady Mrs Heffernan was absolutely amazing, couldn’t have been nicer!”
We had the most wonderful stay on the farm. We had everything we needed and was asked multiple times if there was anything else that could be done. Will definitely be back! Thank you for a wonderful stay!- Miss O'loughlin, August 2018
“We were "upgraded" at the last moment as no-one else was staying at any of the cottages, so perhaps the one we occupied had not been cleaned as thoroughly as usual, but even for a farm was very dusty.”
Having said that, the people were very friendly and helpful and we certainly would be interested in returning in future. We had a lovely stay in a not too touristy area.- Mr Storey, June 2018
“Lovely cosy comfortable cottage.”
Working farm with animals to see behind cottage. Peaceful and relaxing stay in a beautiful part of Ireland. The main positive was the wonderful owners of the cottage, every consideration was met. We were asked daily if anything was needed to make our stay better. We have stayed in many cottages but never experienced such friendly, kind and caring people. I feel that we have made some true friends.- Mrs Cassidy, May 2018
“This cottage is very cosy, it has everything that you could want for a relaxing get away from it all!”
We really enjoyed our stay and the owner could not have been more friendly or helpful. We were able to bring our small dog and we went for long walks on the beach (15 mins drive away) and we visited Wells House nearby and had a lovely picnic in the grounds there. We have no hesitation in recommending Tober Beag.- Ms Keating, September 2016
“You need to update directions - all ferries go into Dublin now - local directions not specific enough from Ferns - there are 2 roads opposite the garage - heating and hot water from log burner - we are used to using a log burner but could have been a bit of a nuisance for anyone not wanting to light the fire - front door very drafty think I would think twice about booking it in colder weather - although a farm no animals visible which could be a disappointment for children - location perfect for us and we had a very good holiday.”- Mrs Bird, August 2016
“The cottage which was off the farm courtyard and was very comfortable and well equipped.”
The bedroom we used was very warm and cosy. The kitchen was well catered with everything you need. The lounge had a good size TV and you could cosy up next to the wood burner. The owner was very friendly and very helpful.- Mr Long, January 2016
“The owner is a lovely lady - very kind and helpful.”
As this is a working farm there are animals wandering around the yard.- Mrs Lane, May 2014
“The owner was an incredibly hospitable lady and we loved the cottage and would have happily stayed longer.”- Ms Truter, May 2014
“Have stayed before in this cottage and would certainly return a third time.”
Very welcoming, our host was extremely nice and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, especially as the weather was so good.- Mr Geraghty, July 2013
“Very friendly and considerate owner, went over and above usual requirements.”
Bread, butter, milk, tea and coffee awaiting us when we arrived.- Mrs Knight, April 2013
Ferns 5 miles. Situated around a pretty courtyard on the owner's working livestock farm, 1 mile from the village of Boolavogue, and 5 miles from the historic town of Ferns, these Ferns holiday cottages make a great base for family, friends and large groups to enjoy a rural getaway. Combining modern amenities with character and charm, these Ferns self-catering cottages boast exposed stone walls and open fires, providing cosy, comfortable accommodation for any guest. Tober Mor, the largest of the cottages, offers guests flexible sleeping arrangements in six bedrooms, as well as a very large sitting room with open fire, the ideal place to relax and spend time together. Tober Eile is the most recent addition to the group, and offers comfortable accommodation for up to 8, but also offers an adjoining first floor door to Tober Mor, for large groups or families that wish to holiday together, but retain that element of privacy. The door can also be locked, keeping the two largest Ferns cottages completely separate, for individual groups. Tober Beag is the smaller of the cottages and features two pretty bedrooms, a fantastic open plan living area with open fire, and a feature paddock door, great for families, or as a cosy, romantic retreat. The town of Ferns has an interesting history just waiting to be discovered, while the coastal resort of Courtown has something for everyone. With ten lovely, secluded beaches in the area, and lots to see and do, these Ferns cottages are fantastic, all year round.
A lovely cottage, the smaller of three on this site, situated around a pretty courtyard on the owner's working livestock farm, 1 mile from the village of Boolavogue, and only 5 miles from the small town of Ferns, in lovely County Wexford.
Cosy and quaint, Tober Beag has quirky, character features including the paddock door, open fire and the pretty circular window.
This Ferns cottage is wonderful for couples seeking a romantic getaway, with the country-style kitchen, light rooms and open plan living.
On warm mornings, open the top of the paddock door as you cook breakfast, looking out onto the shared courtyard at the front, before sitting down together to start the day with a hearty feast, and with so much to do in the area, you'll need all the energy you can get!
The coastal resort of Courtown is only a short drive away and has a record for the highest levels of sunshine in Ireland, so why not take a stroll along the harbour, watching the pretty boats as they bob about in the water, and hearing the seagulls swoop and dive, playing about with one another?
Or perhaps enjoy a picnic by the shores of the Owenavarro River, before heading back to your Ferns cottage to light a fire and enjoy a romantic evening together - wonderful!

About the location
FERNS, COUNTY WEXFORD
Enniscorthy 7.5 miles; Courtown 14 miles.
The small, historic town of Ferns in County Wexford lies 7.5 miles from Enniscorthy, the second largest town in the county, and is famous for its long religious past. Established in the 6th century, Ferns has had a profound influence on Irish history, and is home to numerous landmarks and historic and religious buildings, evidence of its illustrious past. Today, only half of 13th century Ferns Castle is still standing, however, its beauty remains evident as it stands tall in the heart of Ferns. Close by, the historic town of Enniscorthy, situated on the River Slaney, boasts lots for tourists to see and do including the ever-popular greyhound racing track, while the coastal resort of Courtown is only a short drive away. Take a stroll along Courtown Harbour and spend an afternoon on the beach, or alternatively, walk or cycle your way through Courtown Wood, and stop for a picnic by the beautiful Owenavarro River. Also other attractions nearby include Wells House and Gardens and Ballymore Historic Features. Within a short drive is the lovely beach at Morriscastle, and a little further lies the Blue Flag sandy beach at Curracloe, great for families. With lots to see and do, Ferns is a fantastic base for touring the area.
To allow for additional cleaning check out time is 9am and check in is at 5pm, thank you.
One well-behaved dog of Cocker Spaniel size or smaller welcome.
