The Folly

Folly /ˈfɒlɪ/n ( pl -lies) A costly ornamental building in the form of a castle, temple, built to satisfy a fancy or conceit, often of an eccentric kind Etymology: 13th Century: from Old French folie madness.

Charm and good design combine to welcome you to a stay in our eccentric, very romantic little Folly. Why not re-charge your batteries and re-light that twinkle in your eye.

The bedroom has a large bed with both a bathroom and a separate shower room and a boat seat on the decking over the Barberry Water with otters and kingfishers as company. Above there is a stylish compact kitchen/dining area with windows to dream out of while you cook, and a balcony looking over the stream and the wilderness beyond. Then into a cosy sitting-room with a lovely wood-burning stove, a comfy sofa, a sleigh bed/sofa (should you wish to have an extra person to stay) and a balcony to sit out for the evening sun and enjoy an excellent view of the grass tennis court in action.

The Folly offers you a true break in a different time.

Guests are able to have breakfast in the Fingals main dining room if they pre-book.
