GORGEOUS SPACIOUS COTTAGE IN PRETTY GARDEN SETTING IN SUNNY SOUTH EAST IRELAND!

County Wexford Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Fabulous well-equipped cottage in a pretty country setting near Hook Peninsula

Horseshoe Cottage is one of 4 beautiful stone cottages where you can relax and enjoy the pretty gardens and lovely views of the surrounding countryside.

The cottages are located in a pretty prizewinning courtyard garden and each cottage has its own private patio/garden area. The cottages are all different, each with its own distinctive character, and they are spacious and equipped with everything you need for a relaxing holiday.

There is lots to do in the area, and in the wider area. Within 15 minutes drive there are parks, gardens, castles, abbeys, a replica famine ship to visit as well as a wonderful coastline with lots of sandy beaches.

The extensive J. F. Kennedy Memorial Park, 5 minutes away, has trees and shrubs from all over the world, lovely walks, good facilities for children and a viewing point from where you can see 5 surrounding counties. The JFK Ancestral Home at Dunganstown is 5 minutes from the farm. At New Ross quayside, 10 minutes away, you can visit 'Dunbrody' replica Famine Ship and see Ros Tapestry which depicts local history in richly embroidered panels. St. Mary's Abbey, Dunbrody & Tintern Abbeys are all within 20 km and the small harbours and sandy beaches of Hook Peninsula stretch southwards.

The Irish National Heritage Park near Wexford has won awards for its visitor experience and, apart from the wealth of knowledge that can be gained from various reconstructions of life through the ages, it provides a lovely walk in beautiful surroundings.

With Waterford, Wexford, Kilkenny about half an hour away and Dublin and Cork a 2 hour drive, the farm makes an excellent base for exploring the sunny southeast corner of Ireland!

We would love to welcome you to one of our beautiful farm cottages where you can relax, unwind and enjoy the pretty gardens and lovely views of the surrounding area. The farm is in a quiet rural area with sweeping views of the Barrow Valley and estuary and it has been in Patricia's family for generations. Its area is 120 acres and the main enterprise is tillage, with grazing for cattle and sheep.

Our five stone cottages ooze character and have been renovated and restored to retain their many traditional features while providing the comforts and luxuries necessary for a calm relaxed holiday in a friendly atmosphere. Each cottage has its own south facing private patio with gas BBQ, and each has a large flat screen satellite TV and complementary Wi Fi.

The owners live in the main farmhouse nearby and are at hand for any extra information about the farm history and the area.

Exploring the Area: The Hook Peninsula, with its rocky coastline, safe sandy beaches and fishing harbours, stretches south to Hook Lighthouse, the oldest in Europe. The many castles and ruins in the area include Tintern and Dunbrody Abbeys and Slade Castle.

There is terrific choice of golf, par 3 and pitch & putt with 10 excellent golf courses within 25 miles of the farm. A well run local equestrian centre is popular for horse riding, as is racing at Tramore, Gowran Park and Wexford. Five major rivers flow through the region providing excellent fishing for trout and salmon, while sea angling and wreck fishing are available off the coast, and Oaklands Lake nearby is popular for coarse fishing.

Five signposted drives in the area bring you through hills and valleys, lush pastureland, with rugged coastline and many historical sites.

Northwards are the Blackstairs and Wicklow mountains and to the west are Tipperary's Comeragh mountains, popular with hill walkers, as is the extensive coastal path.

Nearby places to Visit:: Within 4 km is the extensive J.F.Kennedy Memorial Park which has a vast collection of trees/shrubs and a viewing point offering panoramic views of 5 counties the coast and the Saltee Islands, a notable bird and wildlife sanctuary.

J.F.Kennedy Ancestral home, 4 km, has family memorabilia of the former U.S.President. In nearby New Ross you can visit the replica emigrant ship 'Dunbrody' where transatlantic crossings of the 1840s are re-enacted and see fabulous Ros Tapestry.

A tour of famous Waterford Crystal Visitor Centre is a must, as is historic Kilkenny city and castle. Irish history and heritage can be explored with day trips to see The Rock of Cashel in Tipperary, kiss the Blarney Stone and visit Jamesons Distillery and the English Market in Cork, visit the monastic settlement at Glendalough, Co. Wicklow. Travel to Dublin and take the sightseeing bus, and a host of other possibilities.

The farm is in a quiet, tranquil location, away from it all, yet near to so many amenities!

Guestbook comments from the manager
Thank you for our stay. This lovely cottage was the perfect place to spend our 1st anniversary. We enjoyed the walks and sights .. we can't believe we saw 2 abbeys, 3 castles, a fort and an 800 year old lighthouse all in the one day! Look forward to our next visit!

Roger and Patricia live in the main farmhouse, close to the cottages, where Patricia's family has lived and farmed for many generations. We are on hand to chat with guests and help with questions and information.

Roger + Patricia Knight purchased this cottage in 1860

The five stone built cottages on the farm were originally stables, farm dairy, granary and coach house with various other uses over their long and colourful lives. Each was restored and converted and re-incarnated into cottages by Roger and Patricia over the past 20 years, with each cottage having its own distinct character and space.

Each cottage has its own special features, be it natural stone walls or beamed ceilings, one has a traditional half door, another has a canopied bed and several have wood burning stoves. They have a private garden area within a large richly planted garden with lovely views of the Barrow valley.

EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS! JUST BEAUTIFUL!

I spent a week with my sister-in-law in Doyle's Cottage. I can't express how beautiful Warren Farm is! From initial inquiry, through a change in booking, and finally arriving, Patricia and Roger were nothing but wonderful -- accommodating, helpful, and so friendly! We both plan to come back to Warren Farm (the sooner the better!) with our husbands... it was truly awesome, and I very highly recommend it!
