“Convenient rural retreat”
Reviewed 26 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I stayed here with my family from 14th – 21st October. On one hand Pike cottage occupies a peaceful rural setting, but it is also very close to Ballynahinch, Hillsborough, Dromore, and the A1 Belfast – Dublin main road. The cottage is finished to a high standard, with solid wood floors, spacious bedrooms, and a cosy wood-stove in the living room. John and Roberta welcomed us like old friends, and went an extra mile and then some to ensure that our stay was enjoyable. I have no hesitation in recommending Pike Cottage, and look forward to a return visit.

Hi Alistair
It was our pleasure to have your family stay with us - you have such lovely children. Mr Felix is missing all the attention, and Reggie too! Hope you received the photographs - look out for them on our website
Look forward to seeing you again

“We will be back!”
Reviewed 14 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Stayed in the lovely 3 bedroomed Pike Cottage for a week with my nan, three children aged 4,5 and 7, and our border terrier. What a wonderful week we had. The cottage is in a lovely location, very peaceful. It was very clean and had everything we needed. My kids loved Mr Felix the goat in the garden. John was a most attentive host and ensured we had everything we needed. As holidays do, the week flew by and we were sad to leave, however we will be back again!
