The Property

Roundwood 4 miles. Spread between two buildings and situated just a short drive from the pretty village of Roundwood in Wicklow, is this charming detached cottage near the owner’s own home. This delightful cottage dates back over 250 years and still retains all the traditional delights of an Irish cottage, including artefacts from the original build, but has been renovated and tastefully decorated to offer stylish accommodation for friends and families wishing to spend time with one another in this wonderful county. The main cottage boasts four cosy bedrooms, one of which has French doors leading to the front courtyard so you can enjoy the morning sunshine as it streams in. The open plan living area encompasses a charming kitchen with a breakfast bar, dining area and sitting area, all complemented by a woodburning stove for extra comfort and luxury during your stay. There is also a second sitting room where you can enjoy a chapter of your book or read the local paper before setting off on the day’s excursions. The second part of this Roundwood cottage is located a few steps across the courtyard and is a self-contained cottage, boasting a walk-in shower room and an open plan area with a small kitchen and sitting area with a double sofa bed and woodburning stove. Outside this cottage in Wicklow, you will find a large, lawned area and a delightful sun house where you can relax and enjoy the peace and quiet as the children play in the garden. Many a barbecue can be had on the sheltered decking on hazy summer evenings. The village of Roundwood is located in the heart of Wicklow and is only a short drive from Glendalough, one of Ireland’s most iconic locations, famed for its beautiful mountains, lakes and forestry. Roundwood boasts a selection of shops and pubs where you can enjoy the local cuisine, all washed down with a pint of Guinness! Nearby, a wonderful time can be had at Victoria’s Way, an Indian sculpture park that stretches across 22 acres and encompasses 22 black granite statues, a truly enchanted place. Further afield, the seaside town of Bray offers seaside attractions and shopping and from here, Dublin is only half an hour’s drive where there is certainly no shortage of sites and delights. Whatever the weather, there is something for all ages. A wonderful Wicklow cottage, a place to make some unforgettable memories!
