Meadowsweet Cottage is an enchanting historic three bedroom cottage on approx one acre of land surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens with fine stands of trees, tranquil lawns,  a profusion of meadow flowers, shrubs, and lily pond.

Other features of note are a thatch summer house overlooking the lilypond, a small orchard, intricate  hazel walkway, gated driveway and boatshed.

This is a charming, romantic property, tucked away down a tree lined avenue and surrounded by woods, just a short drive from the pretty rural towns of Clonbur and Cong, and a mere five minutes drive from to the shores of  the glorious Lough Corrib at Golden Bay. Prepare to be bewitched!

The property is accessed via a gated entrance leading to  a gravelled driveway bound by a  stone wall on one side, and a hazel walkway on the other.

The gardens are tremendously attractive, with a number of lawns below the cottage, surrounded by a colourful array of rhodedendron, bamboo, tumbling briar roses, hydrangea, fuschia, montbretia, and interspersed with cleverly designed winding paths between the trees.

The small orchard has several apple trees, and overlooks the lily pond,  which has a fairytale bridge leading to the thatch summer house ( in need of repair.)

To the left of the orchard near the property entrance is a boathouse with upper level accessed via external stone stairs to a studio or fly-tying room.
