Herdsman House was perfect for the two of us. The scenery from the front windows was breathtaking. The house was everything we could ask for, with all amenities explained for us. The house was comfortable and even the cows looked friendly. A fairy fort was a short walk away and a ruined stone home was at the end of the road on the curve of the bay. Desmond and Mary live nearby, so if anything was needed they were easily reached. Desmond even checked up on us a few times but was NEVER invasive. Ask for specific instructions on the clothes washer and there should be no issues to make this home a wonderful relaxed place to stay. If you are traveling with children, there is a game room (that includes billiards and air hockey) that we never used - but that was due to our schedule.
