Fallow Cottage is one of just four stylish cottages at Pollaughan Farm, luxurious in space and comforts but not so swanky that you can't relax, just a real home from home.
Hidden away just inland from Portscatho and The Roseland's best beaches and peacefully set among 22 acres of rolling pastures and lakes you will discover a magical sense of peace and tranquillity, space to unwind and escape.
Ground Floor: Door to hallway with two en-suite bedrooms both with super comfy mid firm beds and antique pine furniture. One can either be made up as a 6 foot super king bed or twins and the other is a 6 foot super king. Both have slightly different bathrooms, one with a Whirlpool bath with over bath shower and the other is a very spacious wet room with rainfall shower but also has a separate bath.
First Floor: Open plan lounge / kitchen & dining area with long views over open countryside towards the sea.
Exterior: A private, south facing patio area with external garden furniture.

The cottage we stayed in (one of three on Pollaughan farm) was well appointed, warm and had excellent facilities. Wi-fi was excellent (we were able to stream Netflix to our laptop) as were the bedrooms (both had ensuite bathrooms with great water pressure and nice showers). The kitchen was nice and open with good appliances and the lounge is a good size with great views over the fields.
The farm where the cottage is situated is lovely - sheep, ducks and hens roam around and provide interest for children and there are two ponds and nice grounds to walk around. Options for longer walks from the farm are excellent - 20 minutes walk to several great beaches and the coast path.
Portscatho village has good shops, a nice pub and coffeeshop and is lovely and worth a visit in its own right. The beach is great and there are some fun art shops too.
All in all the cottage is highly recommended and we hope to return soon.
Had a fabulous time. Lots of lovely touches when we arrived, including the food basket and delicious cream tea. Owners were very friendly and lovely to watch the animals being fed in the morning. A great environment and topped off with the present of some very tasty home baking when Fleur had made a cake.
