A perfect holiday hideaway
Immaculate accommodation in a spectacular setting. Thoroughly recommendable.
Compact but beautiful in a remote idyllic area
The Studio is small but extremely tastefully decorated, with all modern appliances and cosy log burner, which we did need even though it was May. The pool is nice to look at but too cold for us!! Everything was clean and pretty new looking and the groceries on arrival was a welcoming touch. Booking and key collecting was easy and efficient. It was great for two adults but I think two more would be a squeeze and/or keeping an eye on small children with all the lovely knick-knacks around might be a problem too! However we would highly recommend it and the country side around is fantastic for a "get away from it all" experience.
Many thanks for your positive comments and we're so glad you enjoyed your stay.
I just wanted to clarify on the space The Studio has to offer and its suitability for famillies. The Studio is a converted stone hay loft comprising a compact kitchen/lounge area and adjacent sun room with en suite shower room on the ground floor. The sun room has a single day bed with an extra pull out to sleep up to 2 guests. There is a double bedroom with further en suite shower room upstairs.
We usually only recommend The Studio to couples and encourage families to book the Cottage next door as it has nearly twice the space, including 3 bedrooms (double, single and twin). The Studio is perfect for couples but also good for families with one or two children staying for the weekend or couples with a small child on longer stays. During school holidays and the peak summer season, the Studio is usually booked in conjunction with the Cottage by large family groups who appreciate the extra space and beds the Studio provides, the fact that it is self-contained with its own kitchen and lounge, as well as having 2 extra shower rooms.
Regarding the pool, this is located in the garden directly in front of the Studio and is heated by solar panels and does warm up nicely during spells of sunny weather. As we've had an unusually cool and wet spring this year (2012), the pool water has been a bit on the chilly side!
If you have any questions regarding the facilities and layout of the Studio or the Cottage, their suitability for your group/stay etc., please do get in touch. Many thanks.
Pleasure in Paradise: Sheeps Head
We had a fantastic time, relaxing and unwinding on what has to be one of Ireland’s most beautiful locations, The Sheep's Head. The Artists’ Studio where we stayed was beautifully and tastefully furnished, and went beyond the comforts and taste of the typical holiday rental. We just visited in September, and were lucky to have sensational weather every day, sunsets were enjoyed most nights overlooking the Mizen Head. The peninsula itself is easy to get around with lots of walks, hidden beaches and piers, and great pubs, in addition our new favourite restaurant ever close to the cottage 'The Good Things Café' (something no-one should miss, if you’re lucky enough to catch it in season!). We definitely will go back to the cottage; it’s nice to leave the bustle of London and revisit a part of Ireland that is relatively untouched, a simple, relaxing way of life, which we were privileged to enjoy for a week (and who knew that Cork now has a great airport, so it’s simple to catch a flight from London and be there in no time).
Wir haben eine Woche in diesem wundervollen Cottage verbracht und waren rundum zufrieden. Die Betreuung und Übergabe der Schlüssel hat hervorragend funktioniert und das Haus war mit allem ausgestattet was wir benötigten. Es ist sehr liebevoll ausgestattet und hat einen einzigartigen Charme. Die Lage ist sehr ruhig, genau was wir gesucht haben.
