Mike & Sylvia Tolhurst
Fuschia Cottage was built around 1840 as a typical Irish farmhouse of the period. Sylvia and Mike bought it in 1995 and renovated the old part then extended the property to provide 2 en-suite bedrooms for guests. Each year further work is undertaken to enhance the comfort and enjoyment of guests. In 2017 we plan to have an extended and more comfortable dining room with views over the garden. The house is set in approximately 1 acre of landscaped garden, creating a nature friendly environment. There are a number of seating areas to relax and watch the swallows and house martins perform their aerobatics, while enjoying a quiet drink among the shrubs and flower's.
Sylvia, looks after the interior decor and when not keeping the house in beautiful condition, spends most of her time in the garden. The greenhouses are her great joy in which she grows tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and also propagates seeds and cuttings for future use. Mike served his time as an electrician and undertook the renovation and installation of the electrical, plumbing, heating systems and also is responsible for the general maintenance. The external painting is a joint effort. Garden construction work and the vegetable raised beds are mostly Mike's department under the watchful eye of Sylvia.
Fuschia Cottage is situated on the rugged north side of the Sheep's Head peninsula (south side of Bantry Bay) along the Goat's Path in the 'town-land' of Gerahies. It is an ideal base to explore the 'Ring of Beara'. Sheep' Head:- whales and dolphins can sometimes be seen from the lighthouse at the end of the peninsula. Mizen peninsula:- Mizen Head lighthouse is worth a visit. A drive east along the south coast from Mizen Head stopping at Crookhaven and Schull to see the picturesque harbours and possibly enjoy the local hostelries. Bantry which is only 10km away is a vibrant market town. Take a stroll along the coastal walk where you can try out the exercise equipment before possibly, a visit to one of the many and varied eating establishments. There are a number of activities that are available locally, golf at the Bantry Bay golf course, walking the Sheep's Head Way, (guided walks can be arranged), cycle hire is available in Bantry. Visits to Bantry House and the Italian Gardens on Garnish Island at Glengarriff are popular and enjoyable experiences.
