Salterbridge Gatelodge is a classically proportioned pavilion lodge located in the glorious Blackwater Valley. It dates from the mid-19th Century.
Built in 1849 by the Chearnley family, its function was to indicate to the passer-by the good standing and taste of the original owner, and to showcase some of the features of the architect’s work, reinterpreted from the big house.
Today, this enchanting gatelodge offers self-catering Waterford accommodation for two and is perfect for a romantic retreat.
The octagonal entrance hall, now known as the ‘Garden Room’ is among one of its most interesting features.The main bedroom is to the left off this hallway. The sitting room to the right has a log burning stove placed into the original large open hearth, which creates a comfortable and cosy atmosphere.
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.
