We wanted accommodation not to far from Belfast to celebrate my husband 60th and Tullyvar Cottage ticked all the boxes. I found the layout and facilities excellent. There were 10 of us + 3 dogs and a toddler very spacious accommodation and very clean. Loved the hot tub and so enjoyed us all sitting at the large dining table for our meals. Weather was great so a bonus. Our thanks to Mel we hope to be back in the near future.
Lovely large, well-maintained property close to Ballygawley which has all the essentials - shops, bars, bank etc. There were six of us but due to the layout and size of the house all could do their own thing. Really large kitchen with really big cooker and full sized fridge freezer. Barbecue hut very impressive! Easy access and parking too. All in all a superb holiday house with all the facilities you could need. Although we did not need them there was a high chair and a high quality sull size cot so would be great for those with a baby.
Lots to do in surrounding areas and were lucky enough to visit the Giant's causeway and Rope Bridge on a beautifully sunny day.
Would certainly recommend a holiday in this part of Ireland and in particular Tullyvar Cottage !!
I have stayed at Tullyvar Cottage on a number of occasions and always find it to be an extremely relaxing and luxurious experience. The cottage is beautiful and deceptively spacious and has everything you could wish for to make your stay extra comfortable. The jacuzzi bath is fabulous. The barbecue hut is a fun and unique experience and suitable for use in all weathers. There is lots to visit in the surrounding areas for both children and adults (e.g. from boutique shops at the Linen Green, an adventure day atTodds Leap, time out at Lavender Spa, Monaghan town, Enniskillen, authentic French cooking at Ardbeg House restaurant). I can't recommend a stay at the cottage highly enough and I am already looking forward to my next visit!
We stayed at this property for a week in November 2008.
It is abosolutely stunning, the pictures on the website are real!. The house is surrounded by country side and it makes an ideal base for exploring Enniskillen, Fermanagh , we drove to Belfast which is approx 50 miles but the road is excellent.
The small town of Ballygawley is on the doorstep, this is real traditional Ireland where the pace of life is, well lets say ,less hectic.
I would reccommend this property as a getaway, it would make a great place for families to get together, or party.
It is a credit to the owner, no expense has been spared on the finish to the fixtures and fittings.
We will definately return
We stayed in this property in November 2008 and were very impressed both by the setting and by the house itself. It is very spacious and comfortable, has excellent facilities and is fitted out to an extremely high standard - a real touch of luxury.
We enjoyed the pleasant walks in the area and exploring the surrounding countryside and will certainly return in summer to take advantage of the outdoor facilities at the property.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone looking for a relaxing break in high quality accomodation.
booked this cottage for 4 of us over new year and had a fantastic time. this really is a stunning property and could accomodate for a much larger party if required. it is as impressive inside as it is out and it really is a home from home with everthing you need to keep you entertained. i would strongly recommend this to anyone. hope you enjoy as much as i did.
thanks for a fantastic time
