Our cottages are welcoming and cosy, offering all the character of a traditional old cottage with all the modern convenience you expect from a luxury escape. We aim to provide not just self catering accommodation, but a country living experience that feels like home, where you can bring your dog and walk out your door into the countryside undisturbed by traffic and let time stand still.

Fabulous cottage, modern spacious, clean. Safe for the children, surrounded by nature. All you need & more supplied. 5 minute drive into Skibbereen, lovely little village, only 20 minutes walk, Castletownsend, was gorgeous with a beautiful pier. A tranquil setting, I would return in a heartbeat.
