There is something charming about a thatched cottage, a rambling rose usually climbing up its white walls and of course the traditional hand-crafted thatch roof. Each cottage has its own story to tell and River Cottage is no different.
The original house on the site was built in the 1770 s and remained in its original form until the early 1900 s when it was rebuilt to its current form. It was owned by a number of local families before being bought by a Scottish family in the early 1900 s and then back into local ownership in the late 1980 s.
Despite its historical appearance, River Cottage has plenty of modern amenities including, a modern kitchen and bathroom. The cottage was upgraded with a condensing boiler, water softener and a modern sewage treatment system. Unused stone from construction at the time can be seen in the flower beds.
The cottage was rethatched in the mid 1990 s by a well renowned thatcher from Navan. Grants are available from the Dept of Housing, Local Government & Heritage and Meath County Council.
Outside it is surrounded by mature trees and shrubs encircling a lovely garden, as well as a large garden shed.
River Cottage has all the charms you would expect, from stone fireplace and timber beams to rough white-washed walls and deep-set windows. It is well located just a short drive to Trim and Summerhill.
