About this listing
A lovely cottage with pine floor and pine vaulted ceiling, a solid fuel burning cast-iron stove, oil central heating and a fully equipped kitchen. There are two bedrooms and a cot room. We have an acre of land at the back with a small orchard!
Built in 1928, this traditional farm workers' cottage is set in an acre of ground, just 2 miles from the stunningly beautiful 'Redbarn' beach. The cottage comprises a simple dwelling with a combined living room and kitchen furnished with traditional hand made dresser and cupboards made by a local crafts man, Brian Coffee. The crockery is handmade from Stephen Pearce pottery. We have a patio for outside dining and an orchard for eating apples, plums, pears and mulberries yummmmm! we have a stereo system with an ipod dock and a small television. We love to cook, so the kitchen is well appointed with saucepans and cooking utensils. There is a small double bed room, a bedroom with twin beds and a single bedroom (which would be most suited to a child) that has to be walked through to go to the shower room. You will love sitting in our cosy living room with the cast-iron stove.

I had a great few days at the cottage. it was warm and comfy and I had everything I could possibly want. Thanks for letting me enjoy your lovely cottage.
We had a great time in Ireland. Our cottage was lovely. It was nice to have a place to cook breakfast & coffee before we set out on our adventures. It had everything we needed and was easy to find. We found plenty to do with not too far of a drive and had a fun week. Thanks for letting us stay.
We loved everything about the cottage ! It was cozy and comfortable. My daughter enjoyed the visits from the bunnies in the backyard. Unfortunately, we were not able to fully enjoy all that the cottage and surroundings had to offer but we are looking forward to a return visit !
