About Kela Hodgins

Stephen and Kela moved from Dublin in late 2013 with their three children, a cat and dog to live the dream in the fabulous West Cork location.

What makes this cottage unique

This historic country house was originally built in 1770, with many of the outbuildings and features still in tact. Orchard Cottage is located in the walled garden of Dunowen House, surround by 16 ancient apple trees and a productive organic garden where we grown a lot of our own produce.

Orchard cottage is set within a walled orchard on the grounds of Dunowen House - former home to Noel Redding of the Jimi Hendrix experience for 30 years. The cottage has a separate access driveway and parking, with a wonderful sun drenched patio for relaxation.

For the more active, we can organize sea kayaking, surfing, fishing, horse riding, cycling or hiking adventures, all within five minutes of our doorstep.

The secluded Sands Cove at the end of the laneway is the perfect hideaway for a picnic, to be lulled by the rolling waves, while admiring the ever-changing skies and sea-life. Walk to nearby Red Strand, with majestic Galley Head Lighthouse a beacon on the horizon.

Stroll through the buzzing market town of nearby Clonakilty, sampling its gourmet treats and welcoming atmosphere. Nip into one of the many traditional pubs, where local and international musicians can be found in session on a nightly basis.
