A 6 bedroom house in Mallow, Ireland

Sleeps 11 people

Wheelchair-friendly

Our home is a large and comfortable house set in beautiful surroundings. It is adapted for our son who is a powerchair user. The rooms are spacious and easily accessible to anyone in a wheelchair.
While the house itself is lovely it is the outdoors which give the greatest pleasure. It is extremely peaceful and surrounded by nature. Birds, rabbits, squirrels and lots more have all been spotted roaming around our few acres. Next door to us is a stud so you get the fabulous sight and sounds of horses without any of the work.
There is no noise apart from that of the wildlife. It is not unusual to have to stop and wait for baby pheasants to cross the driveway during summer when coming home or heading out. Our children love to see who can count the most rabbits as we head out in the car. The house is about three hundred meters back from the road so the total can be quite high at times.
If you’re looking for a quiet restful holiday in charming surroundings you won’t go far wrong in our home. We love it here and hope that you will too.
I will upload pictures soon.
