Retreat From Modern Day Life.

The pretty lakeside Elmhirst Resort is truly a retreat from the trials and tribulations of modern day life. If you're an outdoorsy type you'll love all the activities and facilities on offer - try everything from kayaking to horse riding. Accommodation is in the form of well equipped self catering cottages and each comes with it's own private outdoor patio for making the most of the great outdoors.

Home away from Home

Western Ireland, Ireland

I spent a very brief stay at this resort last week while on a business trip and I was completely overwhelmed by what it has to offer. The cottages which are really comfortable and homely sit on the most stunning lake and my first impression was that I wish my family could have been there to enjoy it with me and I will most definately be returning in a leisure capacity as soon as I can. This resort felt like a home away from home with complete tranquility and I can image having a week here would offer complete peace. There are wonderful facilities onsite from indoor and outdoor swimming pools, wine tasting, stunning walking trails and the amazing option to fly on their onsite seaplane to view the amazing area from the sky. I can honestly say for anybody who loves the outdoors and wants a cottage right on the waterfront this property will not disappoint. Peter, Anne and all the family whom run this resort are the most hospitable hosts I have ever experienced in my decade in travelling extensively with my job. I would reccommend to anybody looking to have a proper switch off holiday whom love nature.

Totally rejuvenated

Toronto, Canada

We went there as a substitute for our cancelled visit in San Diego, but it turned out that this visit helped to achieve the same goal of doing some soul searching and cleansing. Here's what has worked: being by the waterfront with our own dockyard, living in a 3 bedroom cottage and paying for the price of two persons simply because this is the smallest cottage they have, enjoying a panoramic view of the Rice Lake on top of one of the trails on campus, eating delicious healthy food like duck wrap within budget, getting top notch service from staff who would make suggestions about details to us before we even thought of them. Our only recommendation is that they provide better maintenance for the trails in the woods, and especially when the bushes on the majority of the trails are up to our knees.
