We stayed in the 'Fearon' room at Ranelagh. This is a grand and lovely old house with a wonderful sense of atmosphere. Upon arrival, we were easily able to gain access to both the house and our room via the coded keypads (there was no manager onsite). The house was full of guests the night of our stay and my husband and I enjoyed a friendly and amusing chat with a family and their young children who were already in residence whilst we allowed our dog some exercise in the garden. There is a pool and tennis court available for guest use, and an outdoor table in a BBQ area that adjoins the kitchen. The gardens are very pleasant and expansive. The interior of the house is lovely; furnished in keeping with the age and grandeur of the house and again provides opportunities for guest recreation with a large sitting room with plenty of couches, a library and a billiards room replete with a very impressive full size pool table. Our room was very clean and included the added benefit of an ensuite (I believe the other rooms have their own bathrooms, but guests need to leave their room to access them). It was quite a warm day (34 degrees C) when we stayed - thankfully the house has ducted cooling throughout. Our room also had a pedestal fan to move the air around and I was quite grateful for this, as I think it would have been uncomfortably warm without it. In all, we had a very pleasant stay in a unique property and we would very happily book there again.
Fabulous time. We had a group of 8 (4 couples) and fitted in to the cellar and cottage. Thoroughly enjoyed sitting around the fire and cooking our pizzas in the pizza oven. Very friendly and helpful owners.
