  • "What a lovely cottage!"

    Anne and Maurice go out of their way to make this special. We had a really enjoyable week: it's clean, comfortable, quiet and very well equipped with full kitchen including dishwasher, TV and DVD, WiFi, and shower over the bath. The owners are very generous with the large welcome pack of provisions and also with suggestions for local activities. We appreciated lots of little extra thoughtful touches.

  • "This is a lovely, clean fully equipped cottage - absolutely every thing you would need is provided ."

    The rating should be 5 ***** rather than the 4**** allocated. The owners are extremely helpful if you need any advice with places to go & things to do. Cannot rate this property highly enough. Pat.

  • "It is not too much of an exaggeration to say that the Slieve Gallion cottage was just about perfect."

    The cottage itself is perfectly proportioned, comfortable and welcoming, with everything we needed during the holiday, including a welcome pack for an Irish cooked breakfast, cup of tea or coffee which was a lovely touch. The hosts were really friendly and helpful and the location is so central for exploring Northern Ireland. We really could not have asked for anything else. Would (and will) highly recommend Slieve Gallion Cottage to anyone looking to explore Northern Ireland.

    It was a brilliant holiday! Very thorough listing, better than expected! The details were great. For example the BBQ stuff, kids toys and list of things to do etc. Whole place was great, very clean and welcoming. Everything you could need or want was included. The peace and quiet of the area was fantastic and the outdoor space is very usable. We enjoyed dinner outside every night.

    Everything you could want. Anne & Maurice make you feel very welcome. They even leave you a lovely welcome hamper. We chose this cottage mainly because of it's location. It really isn't far from lots of lovely places to visit. Cookstown has a tesco,asda and an m&s foodhall plus there is a spar in moneypenny. We didn't get to see everything we wanted to as we ran out of time so would love to return.
