This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

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.

    Really lovely

    The location made this place special but the cottage itself is really lovely. As ever, the staff friendly & welcoming.

    Moored my boat at the jetty

    It was special for me as I was able to spent four days with my family and grandchildren from Bangor. I moored my boat at the jetty while the family stayed in the cottage. A lovely time for all. Very comfortable and beautifully presented.

    Pretty and well presented property

    We love this location and stayed in Willow Cottage next door a few years ago. The row of cottages is so pretty and the whole atmosphere is very tranquil - a completely relaxing experience. Aspen Cottage is a pretty & well presented property in a delightful location of lakeside and woodland. On arrival we found fresh flowers & a welcoming card as well as a starter pint of milk. The cottage was very clean and generally well supplied. The published description promised us views of the wildlife in the woodland opposite through the latticed windows but in fact the living room windows are small & high so that's a bit misleading & could be left out. The shop & restaurant are very convenient and the staff very pleasant.

    Stayed here in Nov 2008 for the weekend as part of a wedding party. The place and the house was iddilict. Just the place to get away from it all and so private. The grounds and Crom Castle are beautiful. Worth a visit.
