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.

Mike was so kind and courteous. Showing us around the place then allowing us to relax and have a great time. The place itself is beautiful and spotless. The hot tub and projector were great for relaxing and the whole weekend was great!

As all the other reviews suggest, Mike’s little cottage is perfect. It’s our first time using Airbnb and we certainly weren’t disappointed. It’s a qwerky little cottage which leaves you wondering what the story is behind each object in and around the house. It was our honeymoon a…

I live with my wife Eibhlin in the country outside Killyleagh, I am a musician, photographer and gardener. My late wife Ruth was a garden designer and extraordinary artist and between 2000 and 2013 we crafted this very unusual house and garden (for Northern Ireland).
