About Robert Campbell-Lloyd
Carmen & Robert brought their family to the west coast in 1998 for a life after Australia, Germany and England. The name Branchfield House comes from the Townland name Branchfield in County Sligo. It's architecture has both Irish and English heritage... now lovingly restored. Our children are spread all over the world and so we welcome our guests to share in what the family has created. Carmen is a qualified masseuse specialising in stress-relief therapies and husband Robert is a Landscape Architect with an internet business WORLD smallest KITE. They each share a passion for cooking, rarely eat out, make exquisite tea and coffee, use exclusive organic ingredients with home grown seasonal herbs, veg, eggs and wine. The kitchen garden produces seasonal crops and a work in progress is daily attendance of a beautifully restored Victorian Orangery that provides salad veges and early morning sunshine. Our own Airbnb travels seek 3 basics - a cosy bed, excellent shower pressure and pure drinkable water and we think you will enjoy all three. Carmen's liking for making her guests feel at home can only be called luxurious and she recommends guests to bring their favourite cosy slippers as we encourage shoes off-at-the-door. The Guest House is set across a landscaped courtyard that catches the best of the sun and guests are welcome to bask in the many private nooks. The surrounding land is farmed with grazing cows and sheep and the courtyard has chickens, ducks and birds that sing the dawn chorus. Robert is usually found gardening or restoring the dry stone walls so there's normally someone on hand to assist with enquiries. Carmen has fluent German and Robert fluent Australian :-) If what you seek is privacy then we'll leave you to enjoy. We look forward to your visit.
Robert Campbell-Lloyd purchased this House in 1991
