At last Birch Cottage, our self catering cottage is finished! Birch Cottage is one of a handful of Green Tourism Gold rated self catering cottages in Northern Ireland and the only property that is off grid. It boasts the lowest carbon footprint of any self catering property here, without compromising comfort.

The Green Tourism scheme is  considered one of the most rigorous of its kind and is the only certification programme independently validated by the International Centre for Responsible Tourism (ICRT) on behalf of VisitEngland, VisitWales and the Northern Ireland Tourist Board, and endorsed by VisitScotland and Failte Ireland.

Our use of renewable energy generated on site, our own sustainable source of wood fuel, and a commitment to sourcing natural, local and ethically produced materials are some of the reasons we are Gold rated. Visitors can enjoy organic produce grown here on site, take a course, and just relax and enjoy the gardens and woodland.
