This was our second visit to Fools Haven and it was even better than our first. The changes that alison and Robbie have made both inside the cottage and in the garden are amazing – the bathroom is great and the stove in the lounge keeps the place lovely and cosy. The raised garden with ‘Puffin’s Perch’ was great for our three young children who enjoyed exploring all the nooks and crannies. It was difficult sometimes to get them back inside! We were given a handmade Fools Haven finger puppet puffin and our boys enjoyed taking him around as we visited lots of places, photographing him as we went. Alison met us on arrival and was more than willing to provide us with whatever we needed. Nothing is too much trouble. The welcome tray is great with a mixture of locally sourced produce – eggs, soda farls, cheese, chocolate. The cottage’s location means it is only a few minutes walk to the railway station which is handy for a car free trip to Belfast and beyond. Be sure to read the books in the cottage which give a history of the property since Robbie and alison opened, it makes fascinating reading. We are sure we will be back again to stay in the future.
Hi, thank you for your kind words. As there was a few years gap between your first and this visit it is great to be reminded of the changes and hopefully improvements to Fools Haven. So pleased you mentioned the new bathroom, we had fun sourcing and installing the ‘slipper bath’! Puffins Perch seems to be a hit with all the kids but I am sure the mention of dinner brings them back into the Cottage again. Looking forward to your next visit. Kindest regards, Alison & Robbie
