Two busy business executives, on a Sunday in the country, spotted a cottage and it changed our world. Out horseback riding, we had noticed a derelict cottage on the hill opposite. We rode over, took a look around and fell in love. So began the realisation of our dream to own and run an exquisite country retreat, the kind of place we ourselves would enjoy visiting.
We love life, nature and good company! We look forward to welcoming you to our hidden and delightful part of Ireland.
