About this listing

A cosy getaway in the heart of the Irish countryside. There are NO EXTRAS on price, and lots to see and do in the South East region. The cottage is full of charm and character, and the owners are a friendly family who live just across the garden.
Please note that the gallery bedroom is tiny - although with a very comfortable big bed. The bedroom and stairs make this cottage unsuitable for anyone with limited mobility, but check the reviews! Most people love this place.

The space

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. Richard and Susan have been in the holiday cottage business for 13 years and are on hand to advise or suggest the best places to see.
There's internet access; plenty of car park space; a washing machine and dryer in a shared laundry; 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.

Guest access

Guests will have access to a great big garden in a mature, historic setting.

Interaction with guests

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.

If you are looking for a quiet country style place then this is the jackpot. The site is really nice and out of the way, the view from the cottage is great. Would recommend for a true Irish country immersion.

A lovely stone cottage with an interesting history,in a perfect location for exploring the area. A roaring fire and a plate of homemade scones were just what we needed on arrival. Tea, coffee and Milk were all provided plus other essentials. Susan, Dick and their children made us feel very welcome and I highly recommend staying here. Just a small tip, stop at the ALDI shop just before you turn towards Arthurstown to get some supplies for dinner, much easier than getting to the cottage and having to go back out again later.

That's a good tip, Sue. As well as Aldi, you'll find there several other supermarkets in New Ross - Tesco, Lidl and Supervalu are all en route (13 minutes average journey time). If you forget anything, Campile village has a couple of small supermarkets, and that's just a couple of minutes away. Thank you for the nice review, and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Susan

Quaint cottage in very quiet surroundings. Susan & Richard were always available for advice and help. Stairs up to the attic sleeping could pose a problem for those with some mobility issues. The welcome scones and jam was a lovely thought. If cold weather, you may need to buy extra heating bricks. Handy to key sites in the New Ross area.

Wonderful cottage in the countryside! Clean and cozy with lovely large windows that let in lots of light. Well stocked kitchen with all the essentials for cooking; large bathroom with a great shower; and bedroom was small but bed very comfortable.

I live in a big old house which was a ruin when we moved here in 1995 - with trees growing in it. We have a family of six, mostly teenagers, so we can cope with just about anything. It is lovely to share this place with people, and we have enjoyed meeting visitors from all over the world in our 12 years in the accommodation business. I look forward to meeting you. Susan
