The cottage was a great location for us. The bed was so comfortable, and the wood burner very cosy. Claudia and James were lovely hosts. The only downside was the noise of the water pump every time the toilet flushed or the shower/ taps were in use. I would stay again though

We enjoyed 100% of our time at the cottage, which is located at a former manor farm on an estate near to river Barrow in Athy, county Kildare. The cottage is perfect in all perspectives: complete, cozy, modernly equipped furniture, king-size bed with good mattresses, beautiful rural kitchen and lots of privacy. The estate Barrowford is reached via a driveway surrounded by monumental trees. At the former farm, there are lots of friendly animals: a donkey, 3 lovely dogs, 3 sheep, 3 horses and many chickens. The quiet cottage is the perfect starting point for trips to Kildare (stud and Japanese Garden) and the medieval city of Kilkenny. Even Dublin can be easily visited via the motorway. It is the ideal place for the stressed townsman to recover and reload. The owners are Claudia and James, who are very hospitable, willing to help and gave us suggestions for nice trips. We felt welcome from the first moment, happily surprised by the nice welcome package including wine, the flowers in the bedroom etc.! This cottage is absolute recommendable for a long weekend, which will turn out to be too short. Better to spend a week at the fantastic cottage at Barrowford, we are sure you will enjoy it, just like we did in September 2021!

We had the most amazing holiday at Cosy Farm Cottage. From the moment we booked, we were already made welcome by a lovely email from Claudia. The postcode Claudia gave us took us straight to the Cottage where Claudia met us to explain how heating etc. worked, whilst keeping safe guidelines. The Cottage was immaculate, with beautiful personal touches, like fresh flowers, a basil plant which I used for my cooking and wood & kindling for the stove which was restocked without asking during our stay. A beautiful welcoming parcel of the most gorgeous home made bread ever! a bottle of wine, fresh free range eggs, milk, butter, crisps & chocolates for our kids. Everything that you could possibly need for your stay is in the cottage. We found that we had more than enough room and our boys aged 11 & 9 enjoyed sleeping in the loft (or their Den as they called it) looking at the stars through the skylight. The beds, pillows & sheets were so comfortable & clean and the master bedroom I found very spacious. Initially we booked the cottage as a base for day trips, but honestly we had our best days spent there. Claudia and James are the most welcoming, genuine hosts we have ever met. They gave us our privacy, but were always on hand if we needed anything, which we didn't. We had the whole farm to roam freely & the River Barrow on the property to fish and paddle in. We met petting sheep, hens, the family dogs (Lucy, Koda - friendliest dog ever & the newest addition Goose the puppy), not forgetting our morning visitor Don Quixote the donkey (talking to a donkey through the half door or window is an unreal experience). The animals are not intrusive and only interacted with us when we wanted. In fact, our boys were able to play football in the garden and the dogs didn't even go near them. Our boys were also given the use of a go-cart which they loved (James even pumped up the wheel for them when they flattened it) and they also used the swings in the family's garden too. The pretty town of Athy is only approx. 1 mile away, the nearest store for our groceries was Aldi but there is also a Lidl store further in the town. Claudia had left us info for a couple of local take-aways who delivered to the cottage and on our last night we treated to ourselves to a meal from "The Good Burger" which was so tasty & delivered straight to our door. We loved staying her so much that we are already looking forward to our next hol here. Thank you Claudia, James & your lovely family.

My daughter wants to move in! That says it all about our stay in the Pump House. I feel like we've discovered a well-kept secret and part of me wants to put people off track so that it's not booked out next time we want to visit, but really, I've nothing but good things to say about Claudia and her family and their cute little cottage and the hilarious donkey and all his lovely farmyard buddies. We love Athy and the river Barrow so this was a real treat of a weekend. We ate and drank and swam in the nearby river Barrow. We played cards and football and had picnics on the lawn. We went to the skate park and the car boot sale and Burton House and Gardens. And we made some great memories!

We will never forget this special, special place, where I proposed to my now fiancée! We could not have picked a more perfect place for this special occasion. The cottage is beautiful, warm and cosy, based on a pretty farm with very friendly horses, dogs, chickens and donkey! The hosts were so welcoming and friendly, and were genuinely kind people. Claudia and James provided some great tips on what to do nearby, gave us a lovely welcome package for our arrival, and when they found out about our engagement, they gave us a gorgeous bottle of champagne! They were the kindest hosts we could have ever hoped for! We will be singing their praises for a long time and will definitely be back. Thank you again! From G&H xx
