Garden Cottage is a lovingly restored 18th century stone cottage sleeping 5, nestled in the southern tip of the famous 'Ring of Kerry' near Caherdaniel. Although set in the grounds of Westcove House (see separate listing) it is totally secluded and private with lovely views over Westcove harbour, the Kenmare estuary, and mountains beyond. This characterful cottage consists of a spacious living room open to the roof with a wood burning stove, a fully equipped kitchen and dining area with large patio doors that open south on to a stone terrace and small private garden overlooking the sea. The ground floor is tiled but has luxurious underfloor heating throughout and of course there is internet access - no password required. Just off the entrance hall there is a double bedroom with a king-s...Garden Cottage is a lovingly restored 18th century stone cottage sleeping 5, nestled in the southern tip of the famous 'Ring of Kerry' near Caherdaniel.

Just off the entrance hall there is a double bedroom with a king-size bed and a small single bedroom. A shower room is adjacent to both bedrooms. There is also a utility room with sink, washing machine and tumble drier. The stairs lead up to a twin bedroom with its own shower room – both are small but comfortable and full of character. PLEASE NOTE: Garden Cottage is sometimes not available on its own between May and September unless we are sure it not needed as an annex to Westcove House (1213179) and/or The Stables (1213182) for large group bookings -See Listing 439174. Garden Cottage is also perfect for shorter weekend breaks, especially in the winter. These are usually not bookable more than one month in advance. Please contact the owner for more details. Owner's cancellation policy:- Any deposit paid on booking is non-refundable - except when the client rebooks at the time of cancellation the same property within the following 12 months, in which case the deposit can be carried over less a 10% admin fee. If the owner is able to re-let the property/properties for the full period of the booking, the deposit will be returned less a 10% administration charge. If the booking is cancelled after the full balance has been paid, i.e. six/eight weeks prior to the commencement date, the full sum shall be forfeited. However, as a concession, if the owner is able to re-let the property/properties for the full period of the booking the sum paid for the rental will be returned less a 10% administration charge. Any cancellation made by the client for whatever reason must be confirmed by email. IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT CLIENTS ARRANGE HOLIDAY CANCELLATION INSURANCE COVER. More
