Our newly-renovated cottage is in Ravensdale in the scenic Cooley peninsula, close to historic Carlingford village yet just an hour from Dublin and Belfast. Cosy, compact, traditional accommodation, sensitively restored combine the best of old traditions with modern conveniences against a backdrop of beautiful countryside, perfect for a long hike or just an afternoon ramble. Ideal for couples, solo adventurers or a family of 4. In short: cosy, full of character and in a picture-postcard setting.
Our home is a traditional Irish stone cottage which has been sensitively renovated to combine the best of old and new.
Briefly, the downstairs accommodation includes a hall leading to a compact fitted kitchen with dining area and traditional hearth, a cosy living room complete with stove fire and a shower room and toilet. Upstairs is a good size double bedroom, which is accessed via a loft with a large sofa bed and a seating area. Just to advise, the photos were taken with a wide angle lens; which exaggerates the size of some of the rooms - in reality there are a little more cosy, but still nice and bright with a good sense of space and calm.
Outdoors, apart from the views and lots of garden space, there is a large patio area with bistro table and chairs and a barbeque is available for your use.
Facilities for the children are fantastic. As well as a mountain on their doorstep to explore, a 13-foot trampoline and a tyre swing will keep them occupied in the summer and, for the younger ones, there is a swing, see-saw & slide set.
Some of the other facilities and conveniences include:
- wireless internet access
- TV, DVD player and stereo
- Nespresso coffee machine
- Washing machine and dryer
- Hob, oven, microwave and fridge freezer
- Lots of books and board games
Combined, you have the best of both worlds – a home steeped in tradition yet with all modern conveniences.
The whole house will be yours to enjoy.
