Orchard cottage is set within a walled orchard on the grounds of Dunowen House - former home to Noel Redding of the Jimi Hendrix experience for 30 years. The cottage has a separate access driveway and parking, with a wonderful sun drenched patio for relaxation.

For the more active, we can organize sea kayaking, surfing, fishing, horse riding, cycling or hiking adventures, all within five minutes of our doorstep.

The secluded Sands Cove at the end of the laneway is the perfect hideaway for a picnic, to be lulled by the rolling waves, while admiring the ever-changing skies and sea-life. Walk to nearby Red Strand, with majestic Galley Head Lighthouse a beacon on the horizon.

Stroll through the buzzing market town of nearby Clonakilty, sampling its gourmet treats and welcoming atmosphere. Nip into one of the many traditional pubs, where local and international musicians can be found in session on a nightly basis.
