The Old Farmhouse


This is a Traditional West Cork farmhouse, on a working organic farm, the home of Brown Envelope Seeds. The house has three bedrooms, a kitchen, a bathroom and two living rooms and is half a mile from the sea with great sea views. It is on a quiet road in unspoiled rural countryside, 9 miles from Skibbereen. On the farm there are chickens, cattle and donkeys, as well as vegetables. The house even has its own herb garden.

This is a quiet peninsula, on one side we have the estuary of the River Ilen and on the other is Roaring Water Bay. Turk Head pier is a half mile walk down the road. From Cunnamore pier a few miles away you can take the ferry out to Heir Island. There are lots of nice walks around the farm and through our young woodland area. Minihan's Bar is about a mile and a half away; it has a friendly atmosphere and traditional music on Thursday nights, and cards on Wednesdays and sometimes Fridays. Skibbereen, Baltimore, Schull and Ballydehob are all 20-30 minutes away by car. All have nice places to eat and a variety of shops.
