Pike cottage has been meticulously renovated from an old stone barn and the owners have used local materials to retain the old world charm. Although the barn was originally built in the nineteenth century the visitor will find all the modern appliances inside, such as flat screen TV’s, DVD player, dishwasher, laundry facilities and much more.
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 streets 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
