The Farm Cottages, Sand Cottage 4 Star Approved

Bungalow -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Castletownroche, County Cork
The Sand Cottage is decorated in ultra modern style, its brightly coloured walls and fabrics giving a vibrant feel. The living area of this cottage is open plan, with the open fire as the focal point in the winter, also full oil fired central heating. For our summer visitors the french doors to the gardens offer a panoramic view of the Nagle mountains and the lush Blackwater valley. The straight lines of the bedroom furniture give a sense of space. Two of the bedrooms have TV sockets if guests wish to bring along an extra set. The master bedroom has an air of spring with its daisy prints while the double room exudes sophistication. On arrival, as with all our cottages, you will receive a tea tray with home baking, and a starter supply of tea, coffee, sugar and milk.
