The property

A cosy detached cottage set in wonderful rolling countryside, close to the village of Freemount in County Cork. This lovely cottage is ideal for families and friends who wish to enjoy a peaceful time together in one of the most beautiful parts of the country. The cottage is set over two floors, and has a well-equipped compact kitchen leading through to an open plan sitting and dining area, which is a lovely sociable space to gather around the roaring stove or plan the following day’s activities. There is also a shower room on the ground floor of the cottage. Upstairs there is a double and a twin bedroom to choose from. Outside, the cottage is set in lovely lawned gardens with furniture, where you can relax with a good book whilst enjoying a refreshing drink. There are many walks from the doorstep and you aren’t far from the village of Freemount where you will find a pub and a shop, together with a historic church. Spend a lovely day walking or cycling throughout the Blackwater Valley, or have a day out at Mallow Racecourse. Alternatively you can discover the beauty of the Killarney National Park. The town of Newmarket is only five miles away in the north west of County Cork. The town is bordered by Kerry and Limerick, and the famous Blackwater river flowing close by is full of fabulous salmon. Close by are the towns of Millstreet, which has an equestrian centre and country park, and Kanturk where you will find an 18-hole golf course and a shopping area. Why not spend a day on Ireland’s south coast in the popular marina town of Kinsale, home to superb cuisine, unique shops and galleries? This charming cottage is a fantastic choice at any time of the year.
