Manor House | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Welcome to a step back in time. Williamstadt House is a beautiful Historic Country Manor House nestled near the banks of Lough Derg in the heart of southwestern Ireland. This Georgian Beauty is set amidst mature lush gardens and lawns with a variety of specimen and fruit trees and surrounded by centuries old beech, ash and oak trees.
The house boasts a private fifty acre wood which runs along the lake with trails for hiking and horse riding and its own private harbor for boating and kayaking. The park like setting allows the visitor to truly enjoy and experience a place out of time, where life takes a slower pace. Relax and take a swing beneath a 300 year old chestnut tree and watch the light play on the hills of Tipperary across the lake, enjoy an evening badminton game on the lawn, drinks and dinner under the evening sky, shimmering with stars. Soak in a beautiful Victorian bathtub and get cozy in front of a turf fire in one of the comfortable well appointed reception rooms.
