“a real diamond”
Reviewed 15 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Pinewood cottage is a lovley and secluded cottage. For all who like to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life it is the ideal place to stay. There are plenty of opportunities around the cottage to go for a small walk or do a day hike. The ocean is just a short walk away, It is very beautiful. Especially when you have a sunny day you have a wonderfull view and can look for miles over the ocean.
The route to Kilcrohane alone is a drive worth as it is part of the wild atlantic coast way. The small village of Kilcrohane has its own small shop/post office where you can get most of the basic things you could need. For everythingelse, the town of Bantry is just a 20 Minute drive away. There is also a pub and place to fill up petrol.
I had everything i needed and a wonderfull time in Kilcrohane. I loved the little cottage, it was ideal for the two of us.
Thanks a lot John and Janet.

“Most beautiful little cottage”
Reviewed 6 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My husband and I spent the most wonderful vacation in the Pinewood Apartment. The location is very secluded and peaceful which is great if you just want to get away from it all. John and his wife, Janet, are the kindest people who would meet and great us even on a Sunday night at 9 when we could make it sooner. We would definitely come back in a heart beat.

“If you're OK with taking whatever random weather comes, this is an ideal place to get away to and slow down.”

A small but well appointed property, set on a hill with a great view out over the lough. Great welcome from the friendly and helpful owner. Lots of good walks in the area and easy cycling (how we like it) along the lough in either direction. Nearby village with shop that sells just about everything and pubs and restaurants (we recommend The Old Creamery) and friendly locals. Banter, Glengariff, Schull and Skibereen within easy driving distance. It rained on most days, but we've been to Ireland before and know the always sunny photos in the brochures are not an accurate reflection of the weather. So, if you're happy to go with whatever the weather happens to be, and just want to slow down for a week or two, this is the ideal get-away-from-it-all.
