Our group rented at least 9 of Lyons cottages in prep for our daughters wedding in July, which was sched for Stanhope but switched to Brudenell due to conflicting scheds. My wife and I had The abby with our son and his family. Nothing was for want, right down to the coffee filters. The abby is a home away from home. And Ken and his staff went out of their way to ensure any and all needs were met including helping find other accom in Brudenell(50 min drive) if so desired. Our week in the abby was restful and comfortable. The one annoyance was satellite TV reception when raining and outside activities were cancelled for the kids.

I called up Lyons Cottages after the cabin a relative booked wasn't big enough and it didn't disappoint. Our weeklong stay really couldn't have been better. The cottage was spacious clean and well equipped. You couldn't ask for more right? Wrong!! This place was such a short walk to the beaches of the north shore, we went to a different beach every day and they are the nicest I've ever seen. Combined with a fresh fish market a 5 minute drive away and staff that were friendly and accomodating, I would recommend these cottages to anyone. I can't wait to go back!!!

This marks our 20th year at this location so there must be a reason to return! Actually, there are several. The Smallwood family is personable and accessible. Our cottage is ready on arrival. The sound of the surf at Ross Lane Beach is welcoming. The proximity of the National Park and its environs help make abbey Cottage the location ideal for walks on the beach or bicyling along the National Park bikeway.We're already plugged in for 2013. In short, a great place.
Ps - washer an dryer on site so no long rides to the laundromat leaving more time for the important things -vacation!
