Cottage
This is an artists cottage built around the 1900's set low on one and a half acres in Co. Sligo, just outside the village of Grange. It is a perfect place to really relax and feel cut away from the world. If you are looking for something more unusual and special then this is a place to consider. . There are the most amazing beaches within 10 minutes drive for swimming and surfing, There is stunning scenery with mountain walking and the local village of Grange has all that one needs, supermarket, laundrette and two lovely pubs all 15 minutes walking distance from the cottage. The downsides for those who need to be in touch, are erratic or extremely limited phone reception and no internet,, but that is balanced by calm..You can walk to the top of the lane and make those calls from there...This is an artists cottage built around the 1900's set low on one and a half acres in Co.

The two bedrooms at the back are really adjoining rooms separated by a wall and door, these are the rooms with the 2 single beds and the 2 sets of bunks, The other bedroom with the double bed is larger with its own fireplace and is off the main kitchen/dining area that you see in the photograph.

The Marsh Cottage was a gentle and comfortable stay. Rustic yes but not Spartan. Foremost in any lodging is the bed - large and comfortable. Waking up to the sunrise across the bay was lovely and an inspiration to lounge on the back deck but...More

About the neighbourhood
Grange where Marsh cottage lies, is for the sea lover, it is for the hill and beach walking lover. Although you have to drive 5 minutes to Streedagh beach to have your evening or early morning swim and jump back into the car for a shower and hot whiskey in marsh cottage , you can actually walk down to the shore which is the inlet and back side of Streedagh (see ordinance survey map) for a short walk and there is always something to catch the eye. Nearby 15 minutes drive is the magnificent 'horseshoe' which is the interior side of famous Benbulbin which is a wonderful mountain to climb. Mullaghmore is a super picaresque fishing village 15 minutes away where there is nught and day life. Day trips can be organised to the stunning island if Innismurray or indeed hired angling for thre day also...
