One of the converted farm buildings, Aspen overlooks a small wood with an abundance of wildlife: as well as numerous birds it is not unusual to see deer. With the Lough just 100 metres away this is the ideal base for fishing or for going on boating adventures.

Getting to Northern Ireland couldn't be easier.

    Made enjoyable...

    The estate was fantastic as we were the only people there and it was great to have the real fire to relax in front of in the evenings.

    Made enjoyable.....

    The location was beautiful and extremely peaceful. Our cottage was quaint but well equipped and breakfast on the banks of Lough Erne each morning after a cycle around the estate will be a lasting memory. If we had needed anything we felt confident that the staff would have helped. I think that Crom is an excellent holiday location BUT... I wonder if bicycle hire would be a bonus (I bring my own but think other visitors would be interested) and I feel that the Trust is missing a trick with the shop which could be selling more local history books and other Trust items

    Comfortable cottage

    The cottage was comfortable and ideal for us as a couple with a friend staying. The location was relaxing, tranquil and interesting. Other NT properties and other attractions were within easy reach.

    Beautiful surroundings

    The beautiful surroundings at Crom are second to none making it an idyllic spot to relax. The staff were also very friendly and extremely helpful ensuring that we had everything we needed to enjoy our break. It would be great to have bike hire on the property as there are so many lovely trails and paths to explore

    Well kept cottage

    We thought the welcome pack(tea/coffee) was a very nice touch as was the provision of fresh milk to have that nice cup of tea on arrival. Good quality products in the bathroom. Also the quality of the cooking utensils, pots etc and crockery was of a very good quality. Lovely to be able to light a fire on arrival and we were able to buy additional logs from the visitor centre next day. All staff in and around the centre and cottages very welcoming. The exterior of the cottage was well kept with lovely little garden by the front door and the lead glass windows just set the whole thing apart. This would encourage us as a family to stay in other NT properties although Crom Castle in itself is worth a visit and is a stunning venue with lovely walks. The village nearby (Lisnaskea) provided all we needed for supplies and has a nice range of shops. To top it all the cottage was then a backdrop for a scene in Blandings which was shown on the television within a few days of our trip!! Compliments also for recycling facilities and 'green' kitchen and bathroom cleaning products. Crom Castle is a venue we visit often when we moor our boat there and enjoy the beautiful walks and stunning scenery. We have a couple of dogs so it is fantastic to be able to take them for walks and the provision of dog waste bags and a collection point for same is an added bonus. When friends visit us it is nice to be able to book them into a cottage and then moor and take them for a trip on the waterway.

    Lovely, positive experience

    What a lovely, positive experience - the staff who look after the cottage obviously take such a pride and this made my stay just lovely. I have been living in Northern Ireland for the last couple of years and am now coming home to England; I have very much enjoyed getting to know the landscape via photography here and this was an ideal location for this. Lough Erne and the Crom Estate have to be two of the best kept secrets in Northern Ireland...
