The Stone House
About The Stone House
My heart skipped a beat when I saw Rossbrin Cove and castle for the first time. I was working as a TV producer in London and had travelled the world with work so this place felt world class in terms of the location, wildlife and people ! I am still fortunate enough to travel between London and Rossbrin Cove frequently which has allowed me to indulge my passions for walking, cooking, roaming around the various farmers markets here and most importantly spend quality time with friends and family. It is just wonderful to share this beautiful house with others so they can experience all of this for themselves with their loved ones.
Why The Stone House chose Ballydehob
So easy to get to either Ballydehob or Schull within 10 minutes in the car. So many good restaurants/ cafes/ pubs (some with great music) and of course the artisan farmers markets in Schull, Skibbereen and Bantry for organic and local produce. Wonderful walks all along the coast suitable for all abilities and ages.
What makes this Cottage unique
Peaceful location overlooking calm Rossbrin Cove with views to 14th century castle ruin and islands in Roaring Water bay. Heaven !

Beautiful location great views
The location is stunning. Nature from every window. Good sized house well suited to family living and well proportioned kitchen with all you need for a holiday. Nearby towns of schull, ballydehob and skibbereen lovely with all you need for your stay but other stunning sites easily accessible from here. Amazing ocean access from the gardens which allowed for nature watching and walking by scenes of outstanding beauty. It does get cold and windy due to its location so be prepared to run the fire to heat the house as its freezing otherwise but a fire is a grand thing in itself. It's a seasonal town it feels like so you wont get the vibe of other towns but everyone very welcoming. Do try the markets they are fab and go to paradise crepes in schull at least once you wont be disappointed. Or hungry.
Gardens are well landscaped and beautiful.
Water pressure downstairs hit and miss making showers difficult in some bathrooms but manageable overall especially when looking out on the views available.
Peace and quiet by the water
The Stone Cottage was a warm, cosy, and fully-equipped holiday home for our week away. Even as a storm blew in one day, we watched it from the absolute comfort of the living room, as we snuggled in front of the television. The beds were comfortable - our entire party commented on this - and there was plenty of space to relax individually. We went pony trekking with Derry and Angela just around the corner, and enjoyed all of the amazing restaurants in nearby towns, including The Chestnut in Ballydehob and Mews in Baltimore. I would thoroughly recommend this lovely cottage to anyone wanting a relaxing and peaceful nest away from it all.
The views from the house are stunning. Sunrise and sunset reflect off the water. It is well appointed with plenty of space indoor and out. We enjoyed meals at the outdoor table, even in September. It is so private and enjoyable to have horses as neighbours The walking right out of the house and in the surrounding area was a highlight. We will stay here again.
Thankyou Vicki ! I am delighted you all had such a good time. Come back anytime. Angela
What a wonderful place - we truly enjoyed it and the nice welcome bottle of wine! Magnificent sunsets on all but one evening. Very comfortable, tasteful, well equipped and classy home all throughout. One can tell that this is a much loved place. Lots of good information of surrounding areas and beyond. Made friends with the horses in the field next to us - probably because we shared our apples and pears... People are very friendly and helpful. Fabulous dinner at Budds - highly recommended. Great excursions from our wonderful home base. We definitely hope/plan on coming back!
Ps - If we ever were in the market of buying a home in Ireland we’d be looking for a place like this one.
Thankyou Uschi for your glowing review ! You are all so welcome back any time. Angela

Thank you, Angela, for your excellent communications and your for your warm hospitality. It was a relaxing week in lake very West Cork.
Thankyou Kathy and we hope you will all come back to Rossbrin again soon !
Very smart and well equipped, just what we were looking for.
As above, only criticism, was that sofas were not very comfortable and en suite shower kept slipping back to bath mode rather than shower mode.
