Escape to the beam country.

I feel like saying,
Welcome to another episode of "Escape to the Country"
Today I am showing John a retired Policeman and his Nurse wife Joan a stunning cottage in County Wicklow.

John and Joan both said they had a passion for beams and neutral decor.
Well, this house has it in spades.

Of course they wanted and inglenook fireplace, and whilst not huge, this one should fit the bill rather nicely.

Although they said they did want a conservatory, they might find this open plan area with stunning beam work the perfect place to relax and enjoy the superb outlook.
Will it be to their taste.?
Join me on "Escape to the Country" to find out.

(apologies to Jules and Alistair for my pathetic script and to any readers who don't have a clue what I am talking about)


  1. What a beautiful home. That big open room at the bottom, what a great studio that would make. I have watched in a little while but might tune in tonight. Happy Friday x

    1. I think I would spend a lot of time in there too. I might tune in tonight too. Deb

  2. Ooh, very nice. I love that big room with all the glass and of course your commentary. ;-)

  3. I love a nice beam Deb, we have some in our home.
    Don't worry I understand you perfectly, my family tell me I speak in gobblydegook all the time.

    1. My little one declared last night he was "exhaustipated". I proud moment indeed.

  4. Oh it's gorgeous...never met an aged beam I didn't love. The bedroom is perfection!!

  5. I love our house with exposed beams - it gives the place rustic charm.
    Just got back from my summer holiday so I'm catching up all the lovely posts I've missed!
    Happy New Year to you & all the best for 2012!

    1. Hope your camping went well and you got some good beach time.

  6. Wow it's lovely, I love the contrast of the white floors and ceilings against the timber beams
    So light and open.

  7. Love it! I am a big fan of wooden beams oh and the white. Also a big fan of 'Escape to the Country'. Thanks to for passing on the Award. Gx
