We hope that you will love your stay at Ivy Cottage...

THE COTTAGE

Ivy cottage is warm, cosy and bright and airy. The well equipped kitchen includes full oven, gas hob, microwave, kettle, toaster, washing machine and dishwasher. Tea, coffee, sugar, salt and pepper are provided for use during your stay.

We provide our guests with a welcome basket which includes some lovely Northern Ireland produce - wheaten bread (Ashvale farm shop, Lisburn), Whites porridge oats (Tandragee), Heatherlea shortbread (Bangor) and in the ubiquitous Tayto crisps and in the fridge you will find Ballyrashane Creamery butter, local raspberry preserve, eggs from our own hens and milk from the local Draynes Dairy.

The bedroom includes a comfortable double bed with high quality mattress, wardrobe, luggage stand and chest of drawers. Bed linen, soft fluffy towels and cosy bathrobes are provided.

The living room has a Samsung television with freeview channels and DVD player. Netflix is set up on the TV and a superb selection of DVDs is available for your enjoyment.

The sunny conservatory has a dining table, benches and chairs and has a beautiful aspect onto the garden where you can watch our alpacas graze.

Bathroom features an Aqualisa power shower and we include soap, shampoo, shower gel and toilet paper for your convenience. Shaving point and a hairdryer are also provided.

An ironing board and iron are provided for your use. The cottage is equipped with WiFi (though sometimes this isn’t totally reliable). There is a strong 4G signal in the area.

If you love animals then Ivy Cottage is the perfect getaway! We have three pet alpacas, Chewpaca (Chewy), Padme and baby Leia (born on 3rd June this year!)... we also have nine rescued former battery hens who have the roam of one acre grounds.
