A cosy getaway in the heart of the Irish countryside. Loads to see and do in the surrounding South East region. The cottage is full of charm and character, and the owners are a friendly family who live just across the garden.
The Studio Cottage is a comfortable, fully equipped traditional stone cabin on a picturesque Irish farm. A tranquil spot close to Waterford, Wexford and Kilkenny, so a great place for touring the South East of Ireland. There are 14 sandy beaches on the Hook penninsula, and Europe's oldest lighthouse to visit. Guests at Fruit Hill generally comment on the warmth of the welcome, the peace and quiet, and the unspoiled surrounding area. Dick and Susan have been in the holiday cottage business for 10 years and are on hand to advise or suggest the best places to see.
There's internet on site; plenty of car park space; a washing machine and dryer; everything you need for cooking at home but plenty of good restaurants and pubs nearby. A wood-burning stove in the 300 year old firelpace keeps the cottage cosy any time of year.
Guests will have access to a great big garden in a mature, historic setting.
Susan and Richard live just across the garden and are always available if needed. Guests are welcome to call in for a coffee and a chat.
Everyone comments on the peace and tranquility, and the slower pace of life here at Fruit Hill. It's not a lonely spot, but tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the world it is a good place to recharge the batteries.
Public transport is pretty pathetic, unfortunately. It is possible, but not convenient to get here and get around. If you are keen cyclists or walkers, or don't want to stray to far from the premises, please get in touch.
Please ask about long stay rates.
Susan and Dick are excellent hosts. They are nice, genuine, friendly people who went out of their way to make our stay easy and enjoyable. The cottage is cosy and comfortable - very relaxing and highly recommended.
I had a lovely stay, welcomed by lovely people.
This clean and cosy little cottage is the perfect spot to get around the country or just to relax in front of the fireplace.
The landlords will not only provide you fresh eggs from their hens or delicious and still warm scons and cakes, but will also give you precious advice and insider infos.
A must see!
We loved our stay at the farm cottage! We had booked this as a quiet retreat and it was perfect. From the cosy bed that you had to climb up stairs to get to, to the beautiful views and comfy living area with fireplace, it was great. You definitely need a car to stay here though, as there is nothing in walking distance. Susan and Richard were lovely hosts who provided us with ample privacy, yet were still willing to get to know us. Susan is a great baker and will give you some delicious treats! This is a great place to stay if you want to explore Hook lighthouse or some of the many arboretums and gardens nearby. Thanks Susan and Richard.
My girlfriend and I wanted to get away from the city for a few days and this was the perfect trip. We arrived to a lit fire and some delicious cake courtesy of Susan!
Susan and Rick were the perfect hosts, more than welcoming and helped us out in planning our days and telling us about all the best places to visit.
The cottage itself is great; very cosy and traditional, and the grounds around it are beautiful.
This is the perfect place for a relaxing get away, we couldn't have been happier!
This is a really lovely place with 5 acres of countryside to walk in. Really recomend it!
What an absolutely charming cottage and fantastic hosts. Susan and Richard are warm, helpful, and sweet. They made us feel like extended family. We would return here in a heartbeat and stay even longer next time.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
