Fodor's Review

Midway between Kinsale and Clonakilty on the scenic R600, this lovely creeper-clad Victorian house is excellent as a touring base or quiet retreat—many guests just nestle down and enjoy the sheltered sea estuary and good walks. Guy and Diana Scott have renovated the elegant manor (on a 300-acre farm) to the highest standards, combining family heirlooms with stylish contemporary touches: the grandfather clock in the hall sits opposite an abstract painting by Guy's distinguished uncle, the artist and architect Patrick Scott. The family spaniels are usually around to offer a friendly welcome in the sitting room, with an open fire (in season) and an honesty bar. Guest rooms are spacious and all have views across rolling country to the sea. Babysitting, cots, and children's "high tea" can be arranged, as can dinner from Monday to Wednesday, when local restaurants are closed.
