The space

Tadpole Lodge is 7 minutes’ drive from Tramore and 12 minutes from Waterford City. This is a 2 bedroom rustic cottage retreat in the country side. The nearest shops, pubs and restaurants are in Tramore. There is a queen bed and 2 singles and an extra bed or cot can be arranged. There is one bathroom with shower and a kitchen with most mod cons. There’s an outdoor Gas BBQ. We supply a welcome pack of bread, milk, juice, cereals, tea, coffee, cheese and crackers and a bottle of Prosecco or wine. Bed linen and towels are supplied.

This cottage is gorgeous inside and out! So quaint and the perfect size. My husband, myself, two kids and dog enjoyed every moment. The kids loved the garden and adorable dogs!! It was our first trip with our dog and Kevin and Pamela were so welcoming, helpful and the provisions were a lovely added touch.. especially the Pinot Grigiot and daily fresh hens eggs ! It's a little haven and only a short drive to Tramore, I would definitely recommend this gorgeous cottage.

Lovely spot for exploring the copper coast, and the place is very toddler friendly! Also got to collect our own fresh eggs!

Great cottage in the countryside. Just a short distance from tramore- we cycled in. Great access to greenway for walking and cycling. Clean, cosy and lovely wood burner.

Perfectly lovely hosts and nice supplies left on arrival. However we can't say this space is entirely suitable for people who want to relax and enjoy the comforts of a home.

Response from Pamela:
Sorry to hear that our cottage did not match your expectations, but it is a 2 bedroom cottage and what it doesn't have in wide open spaces (well except for the garden) it makes up for in charm, and peacefulness. I believe the rest of our guests have loved it. We don't have a TV and Wifi as we find most of the people that come are happy to escape these things, and we won't be replacing the book shelves with a wide screen TV anytime soon!

We spent 3 nights in Tadpole Lodge in early August. It's a lovely cosy country cottage, great for children, our 3 year old was in his element playing in the garden and with the toys in the house. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a family stay near Tramore.

The cottage is in a beautiful, remote and peaceful setting. Kevin was a very welcoming and helpful host. We really appreciated the basics such as bread, cheese, milk etc that were left for us. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. Our toddler loved running after the chickens in the garden and playing with the toys in the sitting room. Overall a fantastic stay and I would recommend it to anyone.
