Mulroe Cove - House

'Mulroe House' sleeps 4 and has a comfortable and homely feel with its wooden floors and thick stonewalls. It has two bedrooms, one double and one twin bedroom, a separate bathroom with bath/shower facilities, a cosy kitchen with dining area and a living room with a beautiful old stone fireplace and an antique corner cupboard.
It is stylishly furnished with antique and modern furniture.

'Mulroe House' can also be combined with 'Mulroe Studio' to make one large unit that sleeps 6.

Mulroe Cove is a superb waterfront property and has a truly spectacular and uniquely private setting. It has its own private shingle beach which is only 5 metres from the house and spreads 0.5 km wide. It is a wonderful place to swim, kayak and fish or to stroll and relax on.

Due to its very sheltered position on the South side of the Dunmanus Bay, Mulroe is not only a superb seafront property, but is also set in 5 acres of mature gardens, which comprises a walled garden with Mediterranean and tropical plants as well as various areas of lawn with mature trees and a woodland with waterway. The woodland stretches over 0.5 miles from the house to the main road, thus lending the house a very private and tranquil setting.

At the far side of the beach the sea stretches into a beautiful wild marshland in which many different varieties of birds live and nest. This is a beautiful conservation area.

The house is a lovingly restored stone cottage set in the beautiful walled garden with wonderful sea views. It combines old with new, thus lending the house a timeless feel full of character.

The house consists of three separate rental units, the first, called 'The Artist's Studio' sleeps 2-4 people, the second, called 'Mulroe House' sleeps 4 and the third, "The Boathouse sleeps 4 .

'Mulroe Studio' sleeps two. It has a spacious double height living/dining room with a characterful mix of antique and modern furniture and a twin bedroom on a mezzanine floor. It has a charming kitchen with an old dresser, table and a free-standing modern gas-cooker with electric oven and a stylish, contemporary bathroom with bath/shower. The seaviews from the kitchen, living room and bedroom are stunning.

It is possible to sleep a third person on the bedsofa in the living room.

8/10 Good


Travelled with partner
It was a pity that the garden was so messy and neglected. Even the beech was littered with old fallen pine branches, an old wheel and a tyre. Too much debris lying around the garden.

An Idyllic Stay
We (2 adults; 2 children) had a wonderful week's stay in Mulroe House. The setting is incredible - beautiful gardens with tables and chairs dotted around for a relaxing read, coffee or al fresco dining and a private pebble beach perfect for exploring and a paddle. The house itself is spacious and well-appointed, with plenty of privacy from the other buildings. Stephanie was a very accomodating host and Buster the friendly pug a real hit with the children. Thank you! We hope to return some time.
