Beautiful 250 year old thatched cottage that has been fully modernised. Underfloor heating and Wood Fires! This newly restored cottage has been in our family for over 40 years and holds many happy memories of family holidays. We hope you enjoy your stay!

The space
The cottage is snug, with heavy thatch and thick mud walls, built to last. When we took the cottage on from my parents, we sought to use modern building materials to make the most of the character of the cottage, and also the big skies and wonderful light of this part of Wexford. We love the ancient/modern result, which is centered around a huge kitchen/dining room/family room, bright and airy, with a custom-made 14-seater oak table at its centre, and views through picture windows of the sea and Saltee Islands to the south and Forth Mountain to the west. There is a modern 'wide screen' wood burning stove, a puzzle table, music system and electric piano.
Inside there are four bedrooms, two upstairs in "the old bit", and two in "the new bit", each pair with their own bathroom. From experience, this lends itself very well to two families staying here, or a family with teenagers operating on a different schedule! Sleeping under the thatch is magical, cocooned in a heavy silence. The double room upstairs is accessed through a low doorway, with a window looking across fields to the sea and the Saltees.
"The old bit" also has a small study downstairs with open fire, where my husband works when here but not on holiday, and a larger room with a wood burning stove, that can be set up as another sitting room, or a playroom. There is a ping-pong table and plenty of board games for when inside is better than outside.
Back in "the new bit", the kitchen is well equipped, with a double-oven and induction hob. There is a dishwasher, and two fridges, one in the kitchen and another fridge-freezer in the utility room. This also has a microwave, sink and the washing machine and a separate tumble dryer. The kitchen/living room and bedrooms and bathroom in the new extension have underfloor heating and heat recovery ventilation, which means the rooms are warm without being stale or fuggy, even on the wettest days.
Outside there is a large garden where kids can run wild, and a secluded patio with views of the sea and spectacular sunsets - just keep a fleece to hand!
We love this place. We have made, and continue to make, new memories here with our own children. We hope you like it even a little as much as we do, and that it provides the setting for wonderful memories for you too.

Guest access
Guests have access to the whole house.

Other things to note
Young children are welcome and have stayed here often. However, please note that our house and the garden are not child-proofed. There is a travel cot and High chair. There are no stair gates in the cottage. Children’s safety is the responsibility of the parents.
Unfortunately we cannot accommodate dogs or pets. My son suffers badlywith allergies which are triggered by pet dander.
A thatched house comes with certain risks and obligations - please respect our wishes that there is NO SMOKING at all on the property, no outdoor fires or BBQs and only peat or wood burned in the stoves inside. Please no coal or charcoal.

Location

Coddstown, County Wexford, Ireland

Beaches to the south, beaches to the east, islands to the south-west, history going back to the Normans and further, outstanding food, restaurants and pubs, lovely walks, a vibrant arts and crafts scene, with the Wexford Opera Festival and the spectacular National Opera House at its heart - this is a great place to visit again and again. We have written a short guide of what we enjoy the most.
If you're a walker, pack your boots: beautiful beach walks (we saw porpoises at Rostoonstown Beach in April), woodland walks, walks around the grounds of abbeys, lighthouses and castles.
Nature lovers will enjoy the Wexford Wildfowl Reserve, be blown away by a trip around the Saltees, and be surprised at how much is going on just looking out of the window into our garden.
If you're a history buff, then the New Ross Famine Centre, the 1798 Rebellion Centre in Enniscorthy and the Irish Heritage Centre in Wexford are some of the excellent options you have.
If a golfer, pack your clubs: Rosslare Golf Club is a 10 minute drive away.
If you love to fish, bring your tackle - there is excellent sea fishing from beach and rocks all around us, and you can go further out angling on a boat from Kilmore Quay.
And if you're a cyclist, bring your bike: there is everything from a refreshing 8km ride to Bridgetown for tea and cake or the same distance to Kelly's Deli for coffee and a scone, to a gentle 28km ride to Kilmore Quay and back, to rides around the stunning Our Lady's Island, and more challenging routes further afield, up Forth Mountain, to Wellington Bridge, and beyond. The roads are undulating and quiet, the air is clean and the scenery is spectacular.
