Things to Do


Rated 1 out of 5 by from Warego The information on the Stayz site is misleading. The property was certainly not 'recently renovated'. No drinkable tap water. Bathroom not functional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely and cosy, a nice taste of country life A lovely little cottage, nice and homely and a nice taste of what country life is like. To wake up to the sounds of the cows mooing, and look out the window to see the horses grazing on the grass, so relaxing and peaceful. Sitting on the verandah, very therapeutic just watching the country life and the sun set of the mountains. Well set up for a nice break away from real life, with lots of books and magazines to browse through while you sit on the verandah having a nice cup of tea and biscuits supplied for us on arrival. Was also nice to have a descent bottle of milk in the fridge too on arrival so that we didn't have to rush out to the shops for supplies. My husband, son and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would recommend this holiday property to anyone wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of real life and take a break away to sit back and relax. The local pub at O'Connell was a definite hit too, with amazing food which we had dinner at most nights of our stay. Nice and close to the cottage which was great. Thank you for providing a lovely place to get away. A++++

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful winter getaway! Another wonderful stay at Warego Cottage - thank you once again Pennie & David for making the cottage so homely & comfortable. We really appreciated all the little extras like having the fire going for us on arrival, keeping the wood stocked up, and of course the lovely fresh flowers, milk in the fridge, etc. The cottage is perfect for a relaxing break, and we never tire of watching the beautiful sunsets from the verandah!
