Immerse yourself in the charms of this 300 year old restored thatched cottage, which retains many original features, along with modern comforts, creating a cozy & restful ambience. Explore the meadow with its wild grasses & bee and butterfly-friendly plants, or sit with a drink on the patio, taking in all the scents and sounds of nature. Take a deep soak in the long cast-iron bath and curl up by the fire. Enjoy a long sleep in shuttered rooms. A perfect restorative and re-energizing escape.
There is a large open plan dining room and kitchenette. The beamed ceiling is full height, and the original beam is in place over the stove, where back in the day, cooking was done over an open fire. For cooking you have options of a two ring hob and small electric oven or wood burning stove with large hot plate and full size oven. There is a full range of cooking utensils, pots and pans. There is a fridge freezer and microwave.
There are 2 double bedrooms at opposite ends of the cottage: one downstairs with full height beamed ceiling, one upstairs with ensuite WC, sink and electric shower. Both bedrooms have handcrafted wooden shutters for complete darkness. The bathroom downstairs has a long cast iron bath and handheld shower.
A twin bedroom loft over the dining room is accessed by handcrafted spiral staircase (not suitable for very small children)….it is a very popular spot for children & teens and has a great view from up high!
The sitting room is off the dining room and is really cozy with a small wood burning stove and French doors which can be thrown open to the patio in summer. There is a small tv (Irish channels), DVDs, books, games etc.
There are sash windows throughout the property.
There are views to the front of the wildflower meadow and patio along with its own “square” of stone outbuildings (some are in disrepair and not safe to enter). To the rear is ample parking, another sitting area and a wall of roses. Owners live nearby, pets tend to visit!
