Thank you for all your wonderful entries for the 2015 Photo Competition. Eimhear Collins, had the very difficult task of judging the competition and selecting our winner.

Without further ado, we are delighted to announce our winner, Darren Darby with his photo “Sunrise on the beach”.

Together with our congratulations, Darren wins three nights luxury accommodation for four here at the Cottages. Well Done Darren!

Our 2016 competition will be open to entries early in the New Year, so keep those cameras snapping!

Here is Darren’s photo with a selection of other entries. Thanks again everyone and we look forward to seeing your photos next year.
