About this listing

Charming holiday home in the middle of nature, Drombrow, Bantry, West Cork. One Bedroom with double bed, in addition one sofa bed in the living room is available. A great area for walking, cycling, daytrips. Lake nearby, riding facilities on site.

The space

This property is an unusual type of house, built as an octagonal one room living space, it has recently been completely renovated and a big bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and a bathroom with toilet and power-shower have been added. The original house contains a large modern kitchen, a big bright eating area and a comfortable place where you can sit and relax on a couch in front of the fireplace. in the centre of the building is the chimney with a new stove that can warm up the whole place even in winter and lets you feel at home anytime. This place would be ideal for 2 - 3 adults, with one big double bed in the bedroom, and the couch (easy to be converted into a 4ft sofa bed). From the main door and the bedroom you have access to the outdoor sitting area and the garden. A warm sheltered place !

stayed for a quiet winter weekend break, house is unique very clean and absolutely lovely. open plan layout, well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed in separate room and only a short drive outside bantry. very easy to explore the area from here. sitting in front of the solid fuel stove at night watching a movie was great. Urs is really easy to deal with and prompt responding to questions. Would highly recommend.

We were late arriving as usual, got lost on our way across from New Ross. Urs was very understanding and met us with warmth both personally and with a fire burning. The cottage was everything we could have wished for, quiet, peaceful and really very close to all amenities. The fire was a boon and we loved sitting in front of it in the evening. Ding Dong, the dog, and the resident robin were equally as welcoming. We really wished we could have spent longer and would love to return if we have the chance. Many thanks to Rosie and Urs for sharing their delightful hideaway.

I don't think I can do justice to this special place. A beautiful cottage immersed in nature. We stayed here for 4 nights. The cottage is very comfortable, modern but full of charm qnd equipped with everything you could need. There are windows on all sides which allows you to really appreciate the position in the middle of the green landscape and to enjoy the lovely colourful garden. Whatever the weather the location is fantastic. And the view of the stars at night was breathtaking, withiut the lights of the city they just filled the sky! There is private access to the house so you can come and go as you please. Also a patio area at the back. When we arrived Urs showed us around the spotless cottage and he and Rosie could not have been more welcoming and helpful. They are very warm and thoughtful hosts who also give you your space. We loved meeting Ding Dong the dog, seeing the goats go past and our 10 month old daughter was captivated by an ever present robin. Overall we could not recommend Drombow Cottage more highly. It is full of small thoughful touches like a jug of colouring pencils and a visitors notebook, books, dvds and cds and maps and local information. The stove is very cosy and easy to use. We were able to easily visit sheeps head peninsula, the beara peninsula as well as surrounding towns such as baltimore and skibbereen. Overall it felt like it was our home for the few days. We would Iove to go back!
