THE MAIN HOUSE
The Roost is the charming main house, comfortably sleeping 14 people. Built in the 1830's Paul has completely renovated the plumbing and wiring. The house has been added to over the years and has two sitting rooms, one with a gas fire and the other with a timber stove, great for keeping cosy on those long winter evenings. It has a downstairs WC, a dining room with a large dining table perfect for lounging over long evening meals and a glass of wine. A fully equipped kitchen is provided to help you create a culinary feast for friends or family, or why not take a night off and treat yourself and hire a chef? The house is perfect for family and friends gathering and very well-behaved parties.
The house is over three floors, two bedrooms in the attic and five bedrooms on the first-floor. The bedrooms are very comfortable with feather duvets, pillows and cotton bed linen. Luckily for our guests, all bedrooms are ensuite as a legacy from our B&B days. Sheila, Paul’s mum, had a wonderful eye and spent many years on the look out for simple pine furniture so we are fortunate to have our bedrooms simply decorated with old pine pieces and are bright and airy. The Roost is a mixture of old and new and has been thoughtfully and tastefully decorated so that guests can feel like they can completely unwind and relax in this unique setting in the heart of Westport town.
