The location is beautiful.. From the rolling mist up the Estuary on an early morning to the clear Starry Skies at night.
Heathfield is a great base for travelling around the West of County Cork. From the towns of Skibbereen and Clonakilty to Mizen Head and back to the Beautiful beach at Barleycove. Schull is 1.8 miles from the house, well within walking distance. Schull a lively Village with ample parking at rear of Centra Shop. there is great food to be had, we dined at the Sea Haven restaurant which was so good, we visited three times; Oh, get there early as it gets very busy after 17:30. especially at the weekend.
The Grounds around the cottage are well tended and the is an array of beautiful flowers. With the addition of WIFI, my Minecraft mad playing boys were able to keep busy when they didn't fancy watching TV or a DVD. The mattress in the double room was a bit too soft for my liking, but it did for the duration.
A second toilet down stairs is handy, A tumble drier would be an Asset, as trying to dry beach towels for five people was difficult.
Overall, Heathfield is a Cottage where you can relax and enjoy the quietness and beauty of the scenery around you.
