The Old Rectory is located one mile from the historic and picturesque village of Cong, and the site of the cottages dates back to 1817. The building is in the local limestone and has been fully restored, maintained and finished to a high standard. The houses provide attractive and secluded accommodation and a superb base for your touring holiday. Artists writers and composers have found inspiration in this tranquil setting.
Painters may book facilities of the Courtyard Art Studio by prior arrangement.
Visitors, to take a break from touring, can just simply relax on the garden chairs in the peace of the courtyard or the orchard.
