Overview

County Wicklow Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

A one-off comfortable period cottage right on the Irish Sea coast line

A unashamedly romantic secluded period farmhouse, “Park” has sea views from every room (from every bed if you want to be exact) and is set in a magical unspoiled coastal vista with an unrepeatable “get away from it all” atmosphere.”

A private holiday home and bolt-hole for the same family for more than fifty years, there is a calmness and a healing property that makes it perfect for honeymooners (not necessarily their first) and also idyllic for young children who might find they can explore the abundant natural beauty of the farmland and coastline with a nowadays unusual freedom.

The informal seaside style gardens feature ancient stone walls and extensive grassed areas and suggest the urgent need for a little more relaxation before indulging in anything as vigorous as a walk on the beach let alone a swim. There is a sheltered cove on the property and also rock pools and an amazing rock archway.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Spectacular week

  • 5 of 5
The Park is a wonderful experience, this being our second visit. A lovely cottage with modern facilities, well equipped kitchen, comfortable bedrooms and living areas. The gardens are beautiful and the beach amazing. The owner was a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend. We dined out only once at a restaurant in Arklow also call The Park, our reason for choosing, and again highly recommend. We had a week of amazing sun so even got to swim in the sea as well as sun bathe on our own beach. Even the variety of pebbles created an interest. Along with cows, birds and bumble bees; seals, hares and a hedgehog were seen.

History and your own beach

  • 5 of 5
For starters, the gardens have grown so beautifully and significantly since the website pictures were taken that what appears as a wonderful home and location is - if possible - even better than described. The grounds are spectacular.

Bear in mind...this is a beautiful home, but it's an old home!

For those appreciating history, the beach, privacy...this is your place. The drive in is enchanting. The local cows add a wonderful touch, but it's when you settle in and ramble over to the head of the beach walk that you truly understand this property. To have this rambling, historical house, the grounds, the beach, etc., it's just incredible.

We used Park as a home base for exploring, including Glendalough, Avoca and Bray/Greystone. The Wicklow Gap and other need-to-see places are easily accessible from the house.

Then, of course, it was nice to just search for stones and shells.

A Uniquely Enjoyable Experience.

  • 5 of 5
As civilization expands and becomes more hectic, fewer places offering total quiet and solitude are available for vacation experiences. Park is such a venue, given the incredible private beach (loved the cave) and separate courtyards surrounded by numerous varieties of plants/flowers. The house is cozy, not lavish, but offers all amenities needed for an enjoyable stay. Being antique lovers, we adored the period furniture and open (working) fireplaces in the living room and "old" kitchen. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and provided great directions to Park. It feels like such a remote location and that's why we rented it, but with Dublin an hour away, it makes a great spot to tour the eastern countryside from. We hope to be back to decompress again. Kudos to the owners for renting it...if I were them, I'd be there every day.

Beautiful out-of-the-way cottage

  • 4 of 5
The weather was unexpectedly kind and we had a lovely week, hardly leaving the house, gardens and beach. We hope to return; it's a beautiful location.

An Ideal Haven

  • 5 of 5
We felt that the place was just waiting for us. It is a true gem. The farmhouse is stunning inside and out and the gardens laced the sea views so beautifully. The house was so stylish and familiar in that the resonance from the antique furniture made it feel timeless yet comfortable. The kitchen was really well equipped and the cottage was clean and warm and the bedding was of a very good quality. Having a private beach was just amazing. It was a truly perfect haven.
Thank you to Colin for his attention to detail and for checking that all was well by phone when we arrived.

Wonderfully relaxing location!

  • 4 of 5
Our family had a great time during our stay at the Park. The outdoor space is spectacular - complete with "pirate cave" down on the beach for little boys to discover. Although the historic farmhouse is restored and in may ways very updated - kitchen was grand! Well stocked with plates, serving dishes and silverware. Our only problem came from not so updated electricity for all the Ipads, phones and computers that all of us travel with nowadays.
I would recommend the Park for families that want a "getaway". It is a very relaxing place to stay especially if you don't need to sightsee everyday.

'Park,' the name of the property, is situated on the coast about four miles south of the town of Arklow which is the nearest center for shopping and a good choice of pubs and restaurants. Although secluded, with a town so close it could not be described as remote. It is about one mile off the road system at the end of a lane way with two farm gates which need to be opened and closed.

It is close to the Wicklow Mountains and the delightful village of Avoca where the TV sitcom Ballykissangel was filmed. Day trips to Dublin, Wexford and the charming City of Kilkenny are manageable. Russborough, the stately home, and the gardens of Powerscourt, Kilruddery and Mount Usher are all easily reached. The highly scenic valley of Glendalough with its monastic ruins is easy and rewarding to visit. Newgrange, the 5,000 year old stone-age passage grave, is a bit further afield but should not be missed.

For those who don't like an empty beach, the popular Clogga & Kilgorman strands are close by.

Other Activities: Garden visiting

Golf: The magnificently set Woodenbridge Golf Club, a leading parkland course of some significance described by the legendary Joe Carr as “Ireland’s Augusta” and “The most scenic golf course in Ireland, a hidden gem,' it is within five miles. Arklow Golf Club, a tricky but satisfying classic links course is even nearer.

There are many other course within east reach including Coolatin and Courtown.

Notes:
Some of the house is 17th century and it has been restored and furnished in keeping with its age. The bathrooms are however completely modern. A cast iron bath, power shower and electric towel rail were added in a 2011 upgrade to the plumbing. The kitchen is also up to date with high specification appliances and specially designed cabinets of locally grown and crafted elm. In September 2010, the farmhouse became the only property of its kind to be added to the List of Protected Structures by Wicklow County Council. Much of the furniture is antique but the interior is generally simple and easy to keep as is traditional in seaside houses.
