Cecils Cottage, Ballynarry - Buncrana


Sea ViewsPets AllowedTraditional PropertyOpen Fire

On first seeing Cecils Cottages you could be forgiven for thinking that this wonderful traditional style building has been part of the local landscape for generations. Instead it is a new build which tastefully combines the best of old world charm with modern world comforts. It also combines an idyllic coastal setting with the convenience of a vibrant modern town on your doorstep.

The location of the cottage is idyllic. It is situated in a rural landscape just a  100 metres from a lovely sheltered beach on the shores of Lough Swilly and  less than 4km to the centre of Buncrana Town.

Flexible Accommodation :: Sleeps 8 -12

The construct of the holiday cottage actually provides flexible accommodations options. The main part of the building has 3 bedrooms which can accommodate 8 people. There is a ‘settled double bed in the Kitchen and dining area to sleep and extra 2. In addition there is separate Single End to the building which comprises living/kitchen/bedroom area and shower room . This can accommodate 2 people. Both residences will not be let to different clients at the same time – the Single end is just as an added extra for an extra cost to a larger group!

Modern Comforts Amis Old World Charm

On entering through the traditional half door of Cecils Cottage the visitor will find a room that has many of the good features of an old cottage but with added modern comforts. Use of fixtures and fittings like a butter churn, sewing machine, oil lamps and kitchen dresser give an authentic feel to the area. However unlike many older cottage parlours, this main room is bright and airy and well insulated.  A second living room in the cottage is more modern style, but with good reason.  This comfortable room has large conservatory style windows to take full advantage of the breathtaking views of Lough Swilly outside. These views can also be appreciated from the garden and from a raised decking area at the back of the cottage.

The cottage has private access through owner’s field and over a rough lane to Stragill Beach just over 100metres away.  Stragill and the neighbouring Porthaw Beach are lovely sandy beaches on the shores of Lough Swilly.  There is a scenic coastal pathway from Stragill all the way into into Buncrana Town. On the way you pass a local kayak centre (1.5km) and an old Napoleonic era fort at Neds Point

A Great Base to Explore Inishowen and Derry City

Buncrana Town itself has a full range of tourist amenities, as well as fine restaurants and lively bars. The town boasts a leisure centre and swimming pool, golf course, pitch and putt, play park, clean safe sandy beaches and many activities for children.

Cecils Cottage is an ideal base to explore the  Inishowen Peninsula.  The Inishowen 100 scenic drive is now part of Irelands Wild Atlantic Way . Following this route is a great way to see this beautiful part of Ireland. Cecils cottage is also an ideal for those who wish to explore historic Derry City from a more a tranquil base.
