This picture perfect and traditional thatched cottage is in a countryside setting just 7 miles from the heritage town of Abbeyleix in southern County Laois, and 6 miles from Ballacolla village. It is comfortable and tastefully furnished with an open plan living area and ensuite bedrooms. The kitchen has a farmhouse sink and is fully equipped with all mod cons.
