About Roger and Liz Pickett

The Cottages Ireland are owned by Roger and Liz Pickett. In Liz's family since 1908, the history, family connection and Liz's fond childhood memories of growing up there makes this an extra special place for them both. Roger and Liz love to potter at The Cottages and you typically find them adding features and extra touches to make their guests stay an extra special experience. Constantly striving for perfection, and lets be honest it doesn't come much closer, their passion is in creating a holiday cottage destination they themselves would like to discover on their travels. They completely renovated the entire property spending two years re-modeling, re-thatching and upgrading these wonderful 300 year old thatched cottages, making them state of the art whilst retaining their sense of tradition and charm. Roger, an Engineer, is always coming up with ingenious ways of improving the behind the scenes running of The Cottages, whilst Liz an avid gardener, spends hours lovingly tending to the picturesque flower gardens that make up the grounds and set this stunning scene. It is this perfect balance and attention to detail that makes an escape to The Cottages an experience to be cherished and a lasting memory.

Roger and Liz Pickett purchased this cottage in 1908

What makes this cottage unique

The Cottages offer that little something hard to find and even harder to describe unless you yourself set foot through the dark brown wooden gates. Once the gates open and you walk through it's like being transported to another world, one of tranquility and calm. The Cottages, with their 300 years of history and tradition, offer a magical quality that charms all who stay. The sound of the sea, the smell of the fresh organic flowers lovingly tended to by Liz and her team. This picture postcard setting is sublime.

Outside the gates there are a myriad of things to do and see - come explore the mysterious and ancient beauty of the Boyne Valley, Ireland's Heritage Capital and gateway to Ireland's Ancient East or the vibrant beat of Dublin's heart. Excellent transport facilities gives easy 10 minute access to Drogheda on the Boyne the local town and to Dublin City which is just 40 minutes away by car, train or non-stop luxury coach service which runs on the hour.

There is also the wonderful Bettystown/ Laytown beach just steps from your cottage door, offering over six miles of sandy escape the perfect place to stretch your limbs and ease your mind. With lovely beach side cafes and amenities in both villages, The Cottages Ireland are superbly located for your dream holiday in Ireland.

Simply The Best!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for an amazing place to stay this is most definitely it. The Cottages themselves are fantastic, cosy fires stunning views of the beach and out to sea and with just everything you could want in accommodation. They are situated yards from the beach which stretches for miles and with private access from the garden. Perfect location if you want to pop into Dublin or just enjoy the beautiful garden, beach and surroundings. Liz, Roger, Mel and the team couldn't have been lovelier and were there to offer help and advice whenever needed. The whole experience was my idea of total heaven.

Owner's Response: James, Thank you for that superb review! It was such a pleasure to have you all with us here at The Cottages and a huge plus that you enjoyed your stay in Little Orchard Cottage and the surrounding area so much. We love that it ticked so many boxes for you, visiting Dublin and the Boyne Valley, enjoying the beach, gardens and local restaurants and most importantly having the best fun ever at the St Patrick's Festival, think there must be some Irish genes in there somewhere ;0) We look forward to having you back with us sometime soon, there's so much more to discover. With warmest regards, roger Liz and all the Team
