The space
4* Approved Self Catering ~ Family Run

We are newly listed on Air BnB but have welcoming guests for over 15 years and our most recent revamp was in 2021.

Wake up to cows grazing, passing pheasants and our pony Milly and Tom the donkey. For a hearty breakfast we supply a welcome pack including fresh farm eggs from our own flock of hens, potato bread, bacon, orange juice, freshly baked scones and homemade jam.

A private 5-minute walk past our pond leads to Lough Neagh where you can admire the outstanding view extending to the Mourne Mountains. From here enjoy lunch at the picnic table or pick your favourite trail.

Come back and relax in our roll top bath, put your feet up at our log burning stove and enjoy a book or movie. We are the perfect get away for families, couples or friends. For those who want to explore the North of Ireland or for those who want to chill out and unwind in a cosy cottage surrounded by nature.

Guests can enjoy badminton, swing ball and barbequing in the summer. Indoors books and board games are provided or logon to Netflix on our smart TV.

Located beside the Seamus Heaney Homeplace, you are only a one-hour drive from all major tourist attractions; the Giant’s Causeway, Titanic Belfast, Game of Thrones locations, The Gobbins and more. Locally, visit the newly opened Davagh Dark Sky Observatory beside the Beaghmore Stone Circles or try something more adventurous at The Jungle.

We are three miles from Ballyronan Marina which has a children’s play area, boat hire and blue flag beach where you can enjoy the latest pastime time - wild swimming.

Golf, horse riding, cycling and trekking in the Sperrins are all easily accessible and a free pass is available for fishing along the Moyola river.

Our nearest town is also 3 miles away, Magherafelt, recently named by the Irish Times as one of the top 3 places to live in NI!

Framed prints by local artist Liam Horner are on display in the cottage which can be purchased as the perfect gift or memory of your holiday.

Where you’ll be

Magherafelt, United Kingdom

Wake up each morning to green fields, our guests tell us the closest thing to an alarm call is if the resident pheasant taps the window looking for a treat. After breakfast, we supply a welcome pack including fresh farm eggs from our own flock of hens and the makings of a hearty breakfast. A short stroll to the Lough takes you past the pond with our resident duck ‘quackers’ and a wild mallard who are now an item. They love any treats.

The private walk to Lough Neagh takes five minutes where you can enjoy the view from the picnic table. Along the walk an old tree trunk and large stones are good stopping points to enjoy the peace and observe the goings on in nature. From here there is a choice of paths through 20 acres of our ASSI shoreline.

The area is rich in flora and fauna. Readily spotted are siskins, bullfinches, kingfisher, buzzard, shellduck, teal, dragonfly, butterfly, orchid and I have seen owls, badger, fox, rabbits, mink, stoat, newt and the highlight for me was spotting two otters playing with their tea, an eel!
