About this listing
Stable Cottage sits in a beautiful location within the mature Fort Royal estate. 2 cosy bedrooms on a gallery landing, open plan living & dining room, opening into a peaceful kitchen garden, this is the perfect country retreat to get away from it all
Fort Royal lies in an idyllic location on the shores of Lough Swilly in North Donegal, in the picturesque harbour village of Rathmullan.
Stable Cottage sits in a beautiful location within the mature grounds of Fort Royal Country House, formerly one of the county's most well-known hotels. Converted from the original stone stable block into a cosy 2 bedroom cottage, it offers an open plan living and dining area with cable TV and DVD player, and fully equipped kitchen. The gallery landing above leads to a double and a twin bedroom, and bathroom with bath/shower. French windows in the living area open into a sheltered, peaceful kitchen garden.
The real magic though lies in the beautiful grounds outside- you will step out of the door into 8 acres of wonderfully mature parkland and gardens, with direct, private access onto one of the best beaches in County Donegal, with 2 km of unbroken sand sloping gently down into Lough Swilly. Your private tennis court (shared between the four residences on site) has among the best views of any court in Ireland!
The shops, restaurants, pubs and amenities of the village are a few minutes' stroll along the beach or road, and the local area is an ideal holiday destination for walkers, cyclists, golfers and watersport fans alike- everything you need is on your doorstep. Alternatively, there can be no better place than Rathmullan to simply change down a few gears, kick back and relax...
