Spacious and homely
This is a brilliant cottage for accommodation. We spent six very comfortable, warm and cozy nights in this delightful cottage and village. Bernadette and Charlie are wonderful hosts. Bernadette made us feel completely at home. The cottage is very well equipped with everything a holidaymaker might need. While the whole cottage is beautiful, the highlight is the stunning picture window in the sunroom at the back, which kept showing us amazing and changing views, including a snowing landscape as we woke up on St Patrick's Day. Highly recommended.
Once again, well presented and welcoming, a very relaxing and pleasant stay at The Bothy.
An awesome place to get away from it all
A little gem in Northern Ireland
The Bothy is a beautifully converted barn with all the modern amenities you need on a holiday, set in a lovely location with views of the surrounding hills. We used the property as a base for our tour of Northern and some of Southern Ireland and found the location ideal for this purpose. The owners are welcoming and the little extras were great. The property is very clean and a very good standard and there is plenty of room.
Glad to have free wifi as the mobile signal was a little intermittent - but then again we are used to the countryside and the quirks that come with it!
Would recommend this property to friends and happily visit again if we ventured to NI.
Thank you for your kind comments - it was such a pleasure meeting you and exchanging stories.
A beautiful location, stunning accommodation,gracious and congenial hosts.
