Set in the heart of rural Co Armagh is a stunning farmhouse cottage where you can relax in quality accommodation which is surrounded by luscious green farmland.
College Hall Farmhouse, which is run by Leonie Livingstone and her parents Jennifer and Tom, is located just outside the small village of Tynan which is about eight miles from Armagh city, just over a mile from the Georgian village of Caledon and about four miles from the quaint village of Glaslough.
Set on a working farm with boarding kennels this is a perfect base for visitors who wish to explore rural Northern Ireland. There is so much to do in this beautiful location. Country roads surround the walls of expansive country estates such as the private Caledon Estate, Tynan Abbey and the popular Castle Leslie in Glaslough.
There are rivers and lakes for fishing, you can go horseriding in Glaslough, you can walk along the banks of the River Blackwater in Caledon, there are lots of historical points of interest as well as great roads for walking and cycling.
This self catering farmhouse cottage is ideal for people who love the great outdoors. There is storage for bicycles and there are washing and drying facilities for mucky wellington boots or walking boots and shoes.
And, if you’re a fan of bringing your dog or cat on holiday, this is perfect as the family will care for them in the kennels or in the Puss’n Boots Cat Hotel.
And of course after a day roaming the countryside guests can enjoy Digby’s Bar & Restaurant, local tearooms and there is also a local cookery school nearby.
With Armagh city so close by – the ecclesiastical capital of Ireland with its two cathedrals, theatre, popular restaurants, its famous Mall, you are in a prime location to enjoy a peaceful rural stay but yet enjoy the many things to do in Armagh and the surrounding orchard county.
If you wish to explore further you can enjoy Slieve Gullion, the Mourne Mountains and the Sperrin Mountains which are all just a drive away.
This farmhouse cottage is beautifully decorated and has a traditional AGA cooker and an open fire. There is also the opportunity to explore the family’s farmyard of animals, boarding kennels and cattery.
With one double bedroom and a bedroom with two single beds, two bathrooms and a kitchen, this farmhouse cottage caters for your every need. And if you don’t drive, there are local bus routes nearby into Armagh and Dungannon.
The Livingstone family live in the main house so there will always be someone there to help with any enquiries.
And of course it’s lovely for the family to get feedback. Here what one guest had to say:
Leonie’s cottage was perfect for our stay. It was warm, cosy and beautifully decorated. The Aga in the kitchen was on when we arrived late in the evening and made us feel so welcome. The house was so clean and cosy. Jennifer’s homemade shortbread was a gorgeous treat never mind the tea, coffee, milk, butter and cheese that were all provided. The cottage had lovely touches included such as cosy blankets, linen napkins and an open fire. I would highly recommend staying here.
