LAHARANDOTA - The Artists' Cottage & Studio

‘Laharandota’ - The Artists' Cottage & Studio – is an old stone farmhouse formerly owned by an American painter, Frank Russell, and now fully renovated to include slate floors, old beams and stone walls.

Located 4 miles west of local village Kilcrohane, and a scenic half-hour drive from the busy market town of Bantry with its great restaurants and pubs, it is set in an acre of land and adjoined by fields, offering extensive views over the sea and the Mizen Head peninsula.

An ideal base for touring and those looking for a relaxing holiday or weekend retreat, it has equal appeal for walkers or cyclists, couples or families. Just a stroll down the lane from Laharandota there’s direct access to the Sheep's Head Way, one of Ireland's 31 Waymarked Ways (marked trails). The peninsula's natural wild beauty makes its 55-mile trail stand out from others and offers an exciting challenge for all keen walkers. If, however, you're not a 'wild rover', there's always riding, sailing, kayaking, diving, golf, cookery classes...

Laharandota has been thoughtfully restored to retain its rustic rural charm and comprises a detached cottage, stone outbuilding with utilities, an old stone loft/barn (the Studio) and greenhouse, and enjoys spectacular views over Dunmanus Bay and the West Cork countryside. Many original features have been retained to create a unique and peaceful atmosphere which complements the surrounding land and sea.

The lovely stone Cottage and Studio are nestled on the hillside, surrounded by a large, private garden with wonderful sea views. The garden features a stream, pond and small outdoor swimming pool (solar panel heated), stone corral with barbeque and patio area equipped with garden furniture.

The Cottage has three bedrooms (a king, a twin and a single), downstairs loo, family bathroom with slipper bath and en suite shower room to the master bedroom. There is an open-plan kitchen/lounge area, a study with sofa bed and a sun room with sea views. The Cottage features a lounge with open fire and a PC for guest use, as well as wireless internet throughout. It is possible to hire the Cottage only or combine with rental of the separate Studio building.

The Studio is a self-contained unit close to the Cottage, which includes a small open-plan kitchen/lounge area and adjacent sun room, both with sea views. The sun room has a small dining area, its own en suite shower room and iron day bed with trundle (to form a king or twin beds). Upstairs comprises a king bedroom with sea views, en suite shower room and separate access to the back garden.
