Ash Hill B & B
Ash Hill is a large, comfortable Georgian estate, boasting many fine stucco ceilings and cournices throught the house. For guests who wish to stay at Ash Hill, we have four beautifully appointed en-suite bedrooms; one with a large king sized bed, two with king sized beds and one with three single beds. All rooms are large enough for an additional cot upon request.
For larger groups, guests can stay in the apartment and be catered for in the main house. This makes Ash Hill ideal for large groups as it can comfortably sleep 18 guests. Ash Hill provides a wonderful environment for children with wide open spaces and lots of animals such as sheep, cattle, horses, ponies, ducks, hens and dogs. Well behaved dogs and horses are welcome with their families, by prior arrangement.
The oldest evidence of habitation at Ash Hill is what is believed to be a long barrow grave dating somewhere between 4000 and 2000 B.C. This was described in letters written by Eileen Foster, an American visiting her ancestral home, Ash Hill, in 1908. Miss Foster wrote “close to the avenue, as they call it, although there are trees on only one side of the road, is a large green mound which is supposed to mark the burial place of one of the Irish chieftains and a number of his followers. It was the custom in those days to bury a dozen or so of his slaves with every chieftain. Father says he would like to explore the spot, but not a man could be found who would put a spade into the sacred earth”.
