This is a lovely house in a magical setting. The larger Ashintully property--including the ruins of the mansion at the top of the hill and the gardens right across the lane--is breathtaking, and having such proximity and access to it is a rare privilege. We had one especially memorable early morning hike up to the columns.
The cottage is simply beautiful, with modern crank-out windows that let you fill the house with breezes, and with gorgeous painted floors throughout. All decisions, large and small, have obviously been made with an eye for both esthetics and practicality, and the result makes for an appealing, comfortable and deeply satisfying place to relax and retreat. One of the nicest features is the new porch, which lets you sit and/or dine with a full view of the surrounding fields and hills. (The main road is close by, but it only bothered us on one occasion.)
Jennifer is an impeccable person to rent from: prompt and thoughtful, with lots of attention to detail. She makes sure you are happy. We have rented quite a few houses, and Jennifer is among the best to deal with.
