I live with my wife Beatrice and our two daughters in London and split our holiday time between staying in Bayfield and going over to Rome where Beatrice is from. For us these are the two of the most Beautiful places in the world! Bayfield has been in the family for generations and I have been coming over with my parents, brothers and sisters since I was a child and have been playing in the fields around Bayfield and swimming from the Flaggy Shore since I can remember. When my mother took the house over from my Great Uncle Edward it was falling into disrepair and had cows using it as a shelter. The thatched roof had fallen in and all the doors and windows had rotted away. My mother with help from the rest of the family restored and extended the house to make it what it is now and we love it. We love the walks, the pubs, the food, the people and the weather whatever the season throws at us. As well as summer we often spend Christmas and New Year in Ireland and find it as lovely then as it is in the summer. On Christmas Day about 100 people from the area go for a morning swim and I have joined them for the last three years and plan to do many more. I am a keen sailor and have sailed and done many regattas on Galway Bay and from other coastal towns along the Wild Atlantic Way. Galway Bay in particular is one of the most beautiful places I have ever sailed - especially when taking part in the Galway to Aran Islands Race. Have a great time if you are staying at Bayfield. Read the tips on the "Read if staying" page on the maxxbayfield website, and be sure to let us know if you had a good time. Many thanks for choosing to stay! Max, Beatrice, Aurelia and Pancia
Max purchased this Farmhouse in 1860
Why Max chose New Quay
Bayfield was built by our Great Great Grandfather over a hundred and fifty years ago and has been in the family ever since. Originally a farmhouse it has now been lovingly and beautifully restored and we are lucky enough to be able to use it as a holiday home and offer it to others to enjoy as well. Our Great Uncle Edward Hynes, the renowned artist who drew for several American and European magazines lived at the house and what is now the main sitting room was his studio for many years. You will see many copies of his pictures and cartoons around the house. We grew up visiting Bayfield for holidays and now think of it as part of the family. We love the walking, the pubs, the views and the people on the West Coast and come back to visit whenever we can.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The house, the rooms and the gardens are all extremely spacious. Multiple sitting areas each with its own charm means that even with a full house there is plenty of space. Something that people really appreciate about Bayfield is that the main living/sitting room is in an adjoining building connected by a small hallway which means that adults can stay up later without waking sleeping children. (Likewise in the morning children can play in the living room if they wake up early!). The house is surrounded by beautiful fields with grazing horses, cows and sheep. Kids love it but I think adults appreciate it even more. The sea is so close that you can walk down to the beach with your cup of coffee and it will still be warm when you get there. We often do this! No matter what the weather it is a lovely place to be. Have a look at www.maxxbayfield.com which has more pictures and more information.
