Built (1966) by General Sir John Hackett , this house occupies a stunning location overlooking the Loughrous Point estuary. It accommodates up to 8 people and provides an ideal base for exploring south-west Donegal. Complete privacy and tranquility
The house is situated on a small hill overlooking Loughrous Point estuary, some 10 minutes from Ardara. Ardara is a bustling small town, typical of south-west Donegal and with a good choice of shops, small supermarkets, post office and bank. Nancy's pub with its renowned seafood menu is a great favourite with locals and tourists alike.
The house itself has outstanding views of the estuary and is totally private and secluded with a garden sloping down to the sea.
Accommodations is for up to eight people. There are three double bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom, and one with two single bunk beds.
Virtually no traffic on the lane outside gives guests complete tranquility and rest.
The remainder of the accommodation comprises a spacious and light kitchen fitted with an electric hob, oven, dishwasher, fridge, microwave and other smaller items such as a toaster and kettle. A small utility room and washing machine lie just off the kitchen. Clothes and laundry can be dried either outside on the line, or by using two extendable clothes drying racks and line in the garage. Opening the garage doors allows plenty of ventilation whilst keeping the washing out of the rain.
There is also one more bathroom for the remaining three bedrooms and an inside lobby and toilet just to the right of the back door.
The living room has a working fireplace, comfortable settees and and an astounding 90o view of the estuary. A door leading from the living room opens directly onto the front lawn garden
More mature trees and a section of wild garden lie to the rear of the property where there is good parking space. The entrance is via a small drive flanked by two iron gates.
All linen, fuel and heating are included in the rental; the house has a good, oil-fired central heating system.
Guets have access to the entire house. Any couples will naturally select just one bedroom and bathroom for their use.
