I restored this cottage from 2003 with love and every ounce of my soul has been poured into bringing it to a cosy retreat perfect for two or a small family or 4 close friends. Take time to Hike, Bike, Read, Write, Draw, Think, Play, Live &make Love. There is a large extension which is another house which can be rented separately or together if you have a larger group. Thick stone walls means there is excellent sound proofing. You would not notice the guests next door unless you meet them.
“Two of us stayed at Sheila's place for three nights. We had a real great time. The house waa perfect for us, cozy and warm with a fireplace and lovely kitchen. We didn't even feel the storm Brendan while hiding behind thick walls of this house. The location is amazing, so much to do nearby. We had lovely chats with Sheila and got lots of tips for the best ways to explore the beautiful Sheeps head and nearby area. Definitely will be back!”
Unique, private and charming self-catering cottage with secluded garden with own parking. Spectacular views of the sea. Outside the door is the wonderful walk along the famous Hungry Hill trail with it's majestic views of mountains and sea. Due to our fabulous location a car is essential.
“This was my third stay at Laraine’s place and I had another brilliant 10 days there. The cottage is beautifully located and inside it has been prepared with great care and thought to ensure a completely relaxing, comfortable and very enjoyable stay. The walks from the cottage up to the hills or down to the sea are great and views ever changing and unforgettable. And so much to do in the area - Laraine provides all the information you will need to explore in full. I will find it hard to stay away in future!”
