Why Graham Shenton chose Castlehaven
We were staying with friends in Castletownshend and saw Traharta one wet Saturday morning. We walked down the steps from the car park to the rocks, looked at each other and said, 'We`ve not viewed the house yet, but we`re going to buy it'. We`ve never regretted it.
What makes this House unique
Location to die for. Difficult to appreciate until have been there, but just amazing at all times of the year. Very peaceful and relaxing.
