The Space

A pretty cottage, nestled in the hills of Tyrone, in a designated area of 'outstanding natural beauty'. Hawthorn Cottage is situated on the edge of the little village of Greencastle, 4 min stroll from the localsupermarket and pub. Originally a blacksmith's cottage, it has recently been renovated and has every modern amenity you would hope for! A haven "away from it all", yet within a short distance of historical sites, local attractions, and surrounded by scenic drives. A 20-30 minute drive and you can visit the award winning Ulster American Folk Park,The Gortin Glens Forest Park, Beaghmore Stone Circle, The local Ogham Standing Stone and local Wedge Tomb,The Old Wellbrook Beetling Mill or just explore miles of wild countryside. There is horse-riding just a short walk away, bicycles to ride, golf courses and a public swimming pool and fitness suite only 30 mins away in Omagh or Cookstown Leisure Centres. So plenty of activities to keep you busy. One day trip can include The Giant's Causeway, Bushmills- the oldest distillery in the world, the Carrigarede Rope Bridge, Dunluce Castle and the Glens of Antrim. Other day trips could be made to The old walled city of Derry, The lakes of Fermanagh, The vibrant city of Belfast or the beautiful county Donegal with its unspoilt beaches, bays and headlands.
The cottage is very comfortable and warm. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed and wash stand. The 2nd bedroom has 2 single beds plus an extra bed. The sitting room has a double sofa bed and open fire, TV-DVD player and plenty of books and games. The kitchen has a dishwasher, fridge freezer, large cooker and big family dining table.

There is a garden to the rear containing garden furniture and fruit trees.
