Owner info

Year Purchased: 1923

About the owner: This beautiful gatelodge is at the entrance to our Family Farm which was purchased in 1923. It was originally built as a Porters Lodge for the Gentleman's Residence which is Scion Hill. When my Grandfather purchased Scion Hill it was occupied by workers from the family Flax Mill. In 2010 we decided that it should be refurbished into Self Catering accomodation. The original part of the building is now a spacious Kitchen and Living Room while there is a luxurious new extension housing bedrooms, utility room, bathrooms and a hall. The property is very light and airy with high ceilings, large rooms and plenty of windows to enjoy the view.

Why the Owner Chose Dromore, UK:
This is a unique property to stay in. It combines the original historic building with luxurious modern facilities

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Although this property is based in an idylic rural Location it is very close to main roads which will take you anywhere you need to go in Ireland. You can relax in well thought out modern luxury while at the same time being able to tour our beautiful countryside.
