If your idea of a holiday is a break from the constant doings of everyday living you have found it.
Welcome, if your idea of a holiday is a break from busy everyday life you have found it.
Situated 3 miles from Magherafelt and a 15 minute drive from the Seamus Heaney Homeplace, waterfoot cottage is only an hours drive from all major tourist attractions. There is a great express bus link 5 minutes away to Belfast and Derry-Londonderry
Treat yourself to a relaxing stay in this 3 bedroom cottage which combines traditional features...a modern mistress stove, roll top bath, quarry tiles etc. with up to date comforts of the modern home and free wi-fi.
Redecorated in 2016 you can enjoy this home away from home.
Wake up to green fields - the nearest thing to an alarm call is a pheasant tapping the window for a treat and your neighbours are the cows happily grazing. Enjoy the cottage’s welcome pack including home made scones, fresh eggs and the makings of an Ulster breakfast.
A private 5 minute walk takes you to the lough shore where you can enjoy the view from a picnic table. There are 20 acres to explore, an old tree trunk and large stones are good stopping points to enjoy the peace and observe nature. The area is rich in flora and fauna. Readily spotted are siskins, bullfinches, kingfisher, buzzards, shell ducks, teal, dragonflies, rabbits, foxes, stoats, frogs and a highlight is watching an otter playing with his tea - an eel! Children love the freedom and enjoy pond dipping as well as making friends with the two ponies Holly and Star.
