Ceol na Mara is a family run business. We are new to holiday letting but are very much enjoying our new venture. I (Marie ) enjoy corresponding with the guests meeting them when they arrive to take them through the house to ensure they are happy with everything and let them know that we are on hand if they need us for anything. We just want our guests to have an amazing, stress free holiday, and wanting to come back.
My husband Murdi built the house himself and because of work commitments, we moved to another part of the island but could not bear to part with the house and so we decided to go into the self catering business, and its been a privilege so far meeting people from all walks of life. Some of our guests like lots of advice and interaction, while others like to be left on their own to enjoy the peace and tranquilly that the cottage and location offer.
There are two cats, Oscar and Felix who refused to move with us, who sleep in the barn beside the property, and my mum pops to the barn to feed them daily. She also provides fresh eggs for the guests if they want them.
There is a large mature garden that gives it that cottage feel, but for me it's when you walk out of the back door and depending on the wind you can taste sea salt on your lips as the sea is so close to the house and also watching the sun setting in the evening is a must to see.
There is a registered walk beside the house "Cuairt Cromor
The slow pace, of life, peace, and being close to nature is great.
