Salterbridge Gate Lodge

Salterbridge Gatelodge, located in the glorious Blackwater valley, dates from the mid 19th Century. Situated on the Salterbridge Estate, on the valley road a mile from the charming village of Cappoquin, the lodge is only 6 miles from the heritage town of Lismore, 10 miles from the sea at Youghal and Dungarvan, and at the foot of the majestic Knockmealdown Mountains. Salterbridge is a classically proportioned pavilion Gate Lodge, which was constructed in 1849 by the Chearnly family, who owned the estate from the mid 18th Century until the 1950s.  This enchanting and lovingly restored property accommodates two people in great comfort & romantic style. Among Salterbridge's interesting features is an Octagonal Garden Room from which the two main rooms, bedroom and sitting room lead. The kitchen and bathroom are to the rear of the house. A stay at Salterbridge guarantees seclusion, comfort, and romantic appeal in abundance.
