Massage West Cork Luxury Break

A luxury Break

We understand how valuable it is to relax, unwind and take a pause from busy lives. To assist in this important goal and to create a true luxury break for our guests at The Hidden Haven, we aim to anticipate everything you might need, such as eco matches for lighting candles and ethically made silk eye masks to gorgeous Irish handmade shower products and sustainably made yoga mats.   We can make restaurant or activity reservations, assist with travel plans prior to your arrival or book you a Swedish massage in our farmhouse with a local therapist.  We offer a laundry service, a messaging concierge service and can arrange taxis, should you wish to dine out and enjoy a drink. Our aim is to make your break as restful as possible at this unique place to stay in West Cork.

Organic, farm grown & Local

Included as part of your luxury accommodation, is delivery of a breakfast hamper on your first morning, full of West Cork locally produced, organic, home grown and home made food. Enjoy home baked Irish soda bread made with West Cork stoneground flour, topped with award winning Glenstal Irish traditional butter and Derry Duff honey.  Savour the intense flavour of an organic Derry Duff berry compote with a healthy glass of Phyterberry aronia juice (using aronia berries grown at our farm). Accompany some famous West Cork Gubbeen smoked rashers with organic eggs laid fresh from our Derry Duff hens.  For later in the day, Derry Duff dexter steaks are available for purchase, to cook up on the egg-style BBQ, by the water’s edge.

savour the moments

Take time for your yourself and savour the moments at this unique place to stay and feel the calming effects of nature, gently ease away tension.  Wake up to the spectacle of dawn rising over the mountains, through panoramic bedroom windows. Linger over a coffee on the deck, with water lapping serenely underneath. Let us arrange for our therapist to give you a Swedish massage. Immerse yourself in a book in the swivel chair surrounded by mountain views or cosy up on the comfy sofa, by the wood burning stove and play games. Stretch out on a yoga mat on the deck, beside the swallows dipping in the water. Take a long seaweed soak in the large ‘tub with a view’ or in the wood fired hot tub, under the stars. A genuinely restful and romantic getaway!

Explore, learn & Roam

Take a stroll round the organic farm or hike further up the mountain to meet the Dexter cattle. Learn about regenerative farming techniques used to produce organic, nutritious food by taking a farm tour with Steve.  Take the plunge and jump into your own private lake, for a real wild swimming experience. Hire our electric bikes to explore Bantry,  Glengarriff and the stunning West Cork hills. Use the fold up chairs, rug and picnic accessories and find a spot for a picnic amongst the mountains, looking out for wild hares. Cook up some Derry Duff Dexter steaks on the BBQ and then light up the fire pit and gaze at the stars, before being lulled to sleep by silence in the comfy super king sized bed. An escape to a unique place to stay in West Cork!
