Birdsong accompanies your arrival at this wonderful Georgian family home where original features abound. It’s surrounded by acres of mature gardens and its bright rooms have huge beds and superlative views (for seclusion, bagsy the charming Scullery studio).
A grand piano and warming fire await in the drawing room. Return from a round of world-class golf or Wild Atlantic Way walk to swap stories over home-baked afternoon tea. Breakfast arrives à table from the kitchen garden. Savour fresh fruits, compôtes (perhaps rhubarb and lime), homemade bread, honey and preserves and tuck into free-range eggs with garden chives or the succulent sausages of Angela’s Ulster fry.
Tick off National Trust treasures, rotate between top-notch restaurants, have tranquil strolls around the grounds and sit by a roaring fire.
