FAIRY VALLEY, AN 80-acre holding tucked away in West Cork, contains multitudes.

It’s a farm of mature paddocked land. It’s a series of gardens rich with plants, shrubs and trees. It’s two stunning homes, one a thatched cottage and the other a three-bed stone sanctuary. It also has sea views, a studio, a hot tub and a forest.

Intrigued yet?

Even without the incredible landscapes, the two homes in Fairy Valley have masses of buyer appeal.

The cottage is the smaller of the two, but still makes room for a sunroom and hot tub, and boasts views of the nearby Dunmanus Bay. It’s a homely sanctuary with arty quirks throughout, located at the other end of the grounds from the main house.

The larger house is an impressive 277 sq m/2,982 sq ft, and rises dramatically from the grassland that surrounds it.

It’s sumptuously decorated, and counts a library room/study, spacious music room and enormous bedrooms with seemingly endless panoramic views among its charms.

In addition to the two cottages are numerous large sheds, a well-lit and cosy studio room and the holding’s very own magical ruin, in the form of a stone folly.

The surrounding grassland could easily be used for farming, with the sprawling 80 acres suiting grazing sheep or cows. A large forested area – a fairy forest, if you will – is perfect for long walks or mystical spirit journeys.

Fairy Valley offers a sanctuary to the new owners, a private world far away from the hustle of everyday life, as well as gardens to get lost in and lots of space for entertaining or farming.

You’re not totally removed from real life, either – Fairy Valley is 90 minutes from Cork city by car.
