Perch Cottage is a new cottage and, therefore, has been constructed to the latest environmental standards. However the cottage has been designed to offer the visitor a traditional Irish cottage experience but with all the modern comforts one would expect from a five star cottage
The cottage is located on a farm only 200 meters from the scenic Lough Aghery. Visitors on holiday or on a short break can relax and enjoy the natural beauty and tranquillity of the area by using the private facilities at Lough Aghery. The lake offers excellent coarse fishing and visitors can take a lake side walk and observe swans, great crested grebes, ducks cormorants, herons and if you are lucky an otter. Some water sports are available during the summer months.
Those with an interest in history can visit local attractions such as the birth place of Harry Ferguson (Massey Ferguson tractors) or stroll through the idyllic Georgian Village of Hillsborough. For the more energetic they can walk in local forest parks or the Mourne Mountains.
The owner is a lecturer in tourism and holds several Northern Ireland Tourist Board customer service qualifications, and would be pleased to assist visitors with tourist itineraries and advice
