About this property

Spectacular cliff top 17th century seaside farmhouse with own beach

Family-friendly farm stay with water park and spa tub
An unashamedly romantic secluded period farmhouse, “Park” has sea views from every room (from every bed if you want to be exact) and is set in a magical unspoiled coastal vista with an unrepeatable “get away from it all” atmosphere.”
A private holiday home and bolt-hole for the same family for more than fifty years, there is a calmness and a healing property that makes it perfect for honeymooners (not necessarily their first) and also idyllic for young children who might find they can explore the abundant natural beauty of the farmland and coastline with a nowadays unusual freedom.
The informal seaside style gardens feature ancient stone walls and extensive grassed areas and suggest the urgent need for a little more relaxation before indulging in anything as vigorous as a walk on the beach let alone a swim. There is a sheltered cove on the property and also rock pools and an amazing rock archway and seating with sea views.
Guest accommodation at this farm stay offers fireplaces and DVD players. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and separate dining areas.

Bathrooms include a shower and hairdryers. This Arklow farm stay provides complimentary wireless Internet access. Additionally, rooms include coffee/tea makers and an iron/ironing board.

Recreational amenities at the farm stay include a water park and a spa tub.

Park - the highlight of our Ireland Trip
Park is a truly special place - charming house, fabulous location and setting and wonderful hosts. The character and beauty of the place is something you have to experience to understand. We are so grateful that Colin and Fleur share Park with others. There is honestly not a single thing that we would change or want to be different. We will return.

A hidden gem so good I hate to share it.
We stayed at this property in July for a week. Probably one of the best weeks I’ve ever had in Ireland although the weather helped greatly. The location is great. Only an hour or so from Dublin but it feels like you are far away. The house and gardens are as described. The gardens are really beautiful and very well manicured. The farmhouse is everything you would expect from a 17th century building. The decor is very much in keeping with the style. That said it makes it all the better. Don’t be worried however there are all mod cons available. My two girls 7 & 10 were very comfortable, able to watch TV when tired from the sun/ beaches or garden playing on the swings. Saving the best for last is the views. Phenomenal. The house and gardens are situated on a hill/cliff surrounded by farmland and over looking the sea and a beautiful large private beach/cove. We sat out every evening looking out at the sea. No tv needed! My kids had a ball. The private beach with the walkway down was great and there is also a fantastic beach 2 mins away ( Clogga beach). The kids loved it. For dinner or shopping there are loads of option in Arklow and Gorey which is just down the road. Finally the hosts were excellent. Friendly, fast and clear communication and were able to help us with anything we needed.

Beautiful cottage perfect location
This is a stunning old cottage with beautiful gardens. The location is remote but close to arklow and the busy town of Gorey We spent three weeks here and all the grand children loved it with private access to a stunning beach and we rarely saw anyone else on it and we spotted the sea lion most days The house is very well equipped with everything you would need without having to leave for anything except provisions It is spacious and comfortable in fact the pictures don’t do it justice. The owners were prompt and helpful in responding to our queries We all loved it and hope to return in the future Happy memories!!

Irish interlude
Our family, four adults and three children under ten, stayed here for one week this past September. Everything was as described in the VRBO site. The location was about an hour south of Dublin by car as well as by train. Locally the house is comfortably removed but not remote. It sits on a gentle cliff overlooking the Irish Sea. The property is extensive including the groomed lawn area. The beach, if not formally private, may as well be so. It spans a quarter mile with near one hundred feet depth. We utilized it way more than we expected. The house was very comfortable living/cooking/eating-wise and quiet as could be, other than soft wave sounds, at all times. Three bedrooms on the second floor one on the main. Both baths are across the hall from each other on the main adjacent to the bedroom. We seven shared easily. The kitchen accommodated three cooks and the dining room table expands to seat seven. Privacy and safety was never an issue. We were comfortable on and off the property including the beach. Arklow is nearby for groceries, fuel, train station and whatever. Gorey to the south is the more picturesque with shops, pubs and a great fruit seller as you approach Gorey from the north. We visited Trim Castle directly from the airport then focused on locations in the southeast. Everywhere we visited, including daily pub lunches, we were received with pleasantries and conversation. Not a bad word a say about any encounters in Ireland. However Aer Lingus needs a lot more legroom! Colin, our host, stayed in touch while we were there and was eager to insure our comfort and satisfaction. Enjoy.
