We are creating a place to stay, to relax, a place to have adventures and to learn. a place apart on the Wild Atlantic Way
We aim to create a small, beautifully formed, contemporary Eco Camp Site with 16 pitches with 6 pre-pitched furnished Bell Tents. For those wanting more space and privacy we will have 4 Luxury 6m Geodesic Dome tents sat on decking with outdoor kitchens that will blend into their cliff top settings on the edge of Goleen Harbour and Ballydevlin Bay. As an alternative we will have two West Cork made Shepard’s Huts one on wheels and one thatched static these will be sited in the Fastnet camping field. Our setting is a beautiful, unspoilt, historic, Organic Farm on the East side of the sheltered harbour at Goleen West Cork. The holding will be further enhanced by the planting of approximately 10 acres of Native Woodland along with artistically crafted sculptural structures, and flags.
All our buildings have been designed and specified with the environment in mind the house and Studio will aim to meet “Passive House” standards of energy efficiency. The camp site building has been designed to blend into it’s surroundings with am eating and socialising area covered by a curved metal profile barn roof that mimics many others in the area. The attached shower, toilet and utility block has timber clad walls and a turf roof. If you look closely in the centre of the Photo montage above you’ll spot the red barn roof, the shower block is attached left.
The camp site will be complimented by a range of environmentally friendly activities that this unique location can facilitate such as Geo Cache Treasure Hunting, Sea Kayaking, Field Archery, Archery Tag, Frisby Golf, Walking, Cycling and Fishing.
In addition we will have massage and beauty therapy treatments on site in our purpose built studio with sauna, (see below) that will also be used for Yoga and other “Wellness” activties. We are creating a loop walk that will pass through the Woodland area and on around the cliffs overlooking the harbour and back into Goleen village.
All these activities and therapies will be available to anyone staying in the area. It is one of our aims to give visitors more reasons to stay on the Mizen Peninsula.
Our farm will produce certified Organic fruit and vegetables, honey and eggs. We will be offering a Box Scheme to the holiday homes, residents and businesses in the area. We also plan to have a farm shop selling only West Cork produce in recognition of food tourism being a strong growth sector. Our Horticulturist will be offering gardening tips and visitors will have the opportunity to come and pick their own fruit and veg.
We will provide an “Outdoor Classroom” facility for school children and 3rd level students to come and study the flora and fauna in the part of the holding that is classified as a European Natura 2000 Special Area of Conservation (SAC).
All of our actions are guided by our 2 main objectives:
• To improve the biodiversity and the environment in which we are working.
• To create sustainable local employment and strengthen the local economy.
