Property Description

Sea View is a detached cottage which sits in a stunning position on the Sheep’s Head Peninsula near Bantry in West Cork. From its location on this tranquil stretch of the Wild Atlantic Way, there are spectacular views across Bantry Bay to the Beara Peninsula. The living room and kitchen/dining area open onto an enclosed patio where you can sit and enjoy an amazing sunset. Directly across the bay is Hungry Hill which was the background setting for Daphne du Maurier’s novel of that name. The lawned garden also has a babbling mountain stream running through it which has an enclosed patio alongside.

Some features of the high standard finish of the cottage include solid cherrywood floors, a vaulted ceiling in the living room and two spacious en-suites.

The beautiful Sheep’s Head Peninsula lies between Bantry and Dunmanus Bays and has the accolade of a European Destination of Excellence award.
