    The cottage although reasonably furnished was not comfortable. It smelt dank and musty especially when opening cupboards, we had to buy air freshener to make it at least liveable. Most of the crockery was chipped and mismatched. Shower pressure abysmal. Had no contact with the owners even though they told us when we rang they would see us the following day. The key was left in the door. Although it was a working stud and there was alway people around we did not feel welcome. The good thing was we could keep warm, it was very quite location and a comfortable bed. We would not recommend

The property

Enniscorthy 9 miles.

This delightful, terraced cottage is situated on the owners' working stud, cattle and sheep farm, 2 miles from Rathnure and 9 miles from Enniscorthy and New Ross, County Wexford.

Set on 300 acres of land, this Wexford cottage has lovely rural surroundings.

Children will love to see the spring lambs and foals on the farm, collect the eggs from the hens in the morning or make a visit to the owners' pet pot-belly pig who lives in the yard beside the cottage!

Tennis is available on site by arrangement with the owners, ideal for an afternoon of energetic fun.

Inside this Wexford cottage there is a cosy woodburner in the sitting room, and two lovely bedrooms, making it a cosy base for a family or small group of friends.

There are lovely mountain walks accessible from the door of this Wexford cottage, but if you're after a relaxing break, you can simply sit back and enjoy the sunshine from the comfort of the enclosed courtyard.

There are lots of interesting places to visit and explore in this part of Ireland, and they are all within easy reach of this Wexford cottage.
