  • "For a family of 4 with a dog, this is a great cottage."

    Plenty of space, a large dog drying area and a real fire to relax in front of with a nice whiskey. There are lots a nice touches to this cottage. Hi-vis vests are provided to use when dog walking, there were logs for the fire, milk in the fridge and a few staples in the cupboards to get you started. We would certainly stay here again, it was comfortable and very good value for money. The owner is very helpful if there are any issues.

    Thank you so much for your feedback and your kind words. I am so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with your family and four legged friend Property Owner

  • "Very comfortable cottage."

    A few minor details were sorted when notified. The biggest problem to us was the outside area. Very overgrown garden area and too many weeds. Not the most pleasant area to sit outside when the sun decided to come out. Just a little more attention to detail and we would have given a better score. Family lovely to deal with and went out of their way to meet up with me when my husband had left his wallet in the house. Lovely little village and folk very friendly.

    Thank you so much for your feedback, I understand your points of view, some of which are already in the process of being improved. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay over all. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful stay."

    Our booking was very short notice and we were still greeted with a lovely desert and welcome drink! We arrived in the dark of night so the key lock box was a wonderful feature. The kitchen became our home for the holiday as it was so comfortable with a dining table and the sofa set. We are a card game and board game family - this was a perfect setting! The central heating was so efficient the kitchen range was sufficient warmth to heat the whole home and we turned off the radiators in the lounge and 2 of the bedrooms. The fact that our pet dog Barron was welcomed - Given our late booking the grass area had not been trimmed for us but as we went daily to the Loch so this was no problem at all!

    Thank you ever so much for your lovely comments and I'm so glad that you found Sarah Magees so enjoyable as a family. It would be lovely to welcome you back some time Yours as always Michelle Property Owner

Head upstairs to find your sleeping spot, with three rooms to choose from including a king-size with day bed, a double and a single.

A bathroom also rests on the first floor so you can end the day with a relaxing soak.

Venture down to the town of Enniskillen to enjoy a wonderful selection of shops, pubs and restaurants, paying a visit to the 18th century National Trust estate of Castle Coole, wandering around the 600-year-old Enniskillen Castle, and browsing the charming collection of craft workshops and studios known as The Buttermarket.

Head out on an exciting boat trip for the day on Lough Erne on an old-fashioned waterbus, with panoramic views to enjoy as you sail along the picturesque waters.

Lough Navar Forest drive takes you to the top of the Magho Cliffs.

At the Cliffs of Magho viewpoint where the vast waters of Lough Erne, 230m below, stretch east and west.
