Great location95% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

Thoughtfully designed cottage, self contained but adjoining owner's main house. Lake to the rear, mountains out front. Comfortable bedroom with ensuite bathroom, home cinema/living room with cathedral ceiling and wood burning stove. Kitchen, with spacious conservatory overlooking the lake. Outdoor hot tub also with view over lake. I like my guests to be self-sufficient and you'll find everything included to make your stay easy and comfortable - quality breakfast materials are just the start.

A darling cottage in a stunning, tranquil location. We felt immediately welcomed by Mike, and his added thoughtful touches (like breakfast and a freshly baked loaf of bread) were greatly appreciated. Our only regret was that we didn't stay long enough!

A wonderful peaceful retreat, comfy bed and perfect for exploring all that County Down has to offer. Mike is a great host and is always on hand to lend assistance or share his local knowledge. The hot tub is terrific, a perfect way to end the day.
