Fodor's Review

Built by James Edward Jackson, land agent for Lord Iveagh at Ashford Castle, this well-off-the-beaten-path, white-trim Georgian house, managed by the enthusiastic Henry and Elaine Reid, has a surprisingly stylish interior, with 19th-century antiques and welcoming open fires. Surrounded by 5 acres of colorful gardens, this country hideaway sits near a stream. Guest rooms above the converted stables are simpler and smaller than those in the suavely furnished house, but all have peaceful garden views and 20-inch flat-screen TVs, should you feel the need.
