Arrival date:

"Perfect for a large family trip" A large group of us stayed here for a family wedding. The large manor house was perfect for the bulk of the family and the breakfast room provided a perfect space for singalongs, drinks and laughs. Smaller arms of the family stayed in the nearby cottages, well within walking distance. The cottages were well equipped, quiet, comfortable and furnished to a really high standard. Both the manor house and cottages had wifi too, in case anyone wonders! It's also perfectly positioned to get out and explore NI, while the nearby Moira provides lovely pubs, restaurants and shops. Stayed July 2016, travelled with family
