We loved staying here . Food terrific -- the most amazing home made strawberry jam made with strawberries from the garden with gorgeous scones with the surprise of crystallised ginger in the scones. And we were given scones to take with us on our journey home Bread home made and delicious too as was the wonderful homemade blackcurrant jam
Bedroom full of light with new stunningly beautiful Sanderson curtains -- that great design with the red / pink tulips and the most beautiful shade of plain carpet I have ever seen-- a sort of golden straw. Great old fashioned claw leg bath and bathroom radiator hot --a lovely luxury in an Irish July. Happy colours everywhere. Be sure to admire the colour of the old Aklow pottery used for breakfast and afternoon tea. And admire the wonderful simple dresser on which they are displayed.
Welcoming turf fire in the drawingroom and loads of Country Lifes to peruse.
A terrific hostess and a great easy atmosphere and if you come in July on no account miss the smell of the white noisette rose in the vegetable garden. Ethereal. And Lucy said we could take a cutting.
