STROMA COTTAGE - self catering for up to 10 people


“We don’t want to leave! The cottage is so comfortable and a real pleasure to stay in, an oasis refreshing to mind and body. Inspires such creativity from both adults and children in the studio. We long to be back.”


A deceptively spacious 19th Century granite property two minutes walk from Gardenstown’s picturesque harbour, Stroma Cottage offers relaxed, comfortable accommodation with 4 generous bedrooms that sleep 9 plus a sofa bed, and a large open plan living/dining/kitchen area.

As an added bonus, the house includes a big complementary art studio for sole use of guests – a great escape for adults, the teenagers’ hangout, or a relaxed messy space for kids to make a masterpiece!

The cottage is decorated in muted earth tones and blues to reflect the landscape. Step outside the door to walks along the beach nestling below wonderful red sandstone cliffs, the wee harbour, friendly local pub, authentic village heritage centre and the sense of being in a special peaceful place framed by a huge sweep of sea and sky.
