The property

Set in the rural townland of Askill, County Leitrim, is this charming stone cottage. Sleeping two people in one comfortable double bedroom, this cosy Askill Cottage offers the perfect, peaceful getaway for couples wishing to explore Donegal, North Leitrim, County Sligo and Northern Ireland. Traditional in style and set entirely across the ground floor, this welcoming Askill cottage offers homely living accommodation that comprises a quaint, country-style sitting room with solid-fuel stove in addition to a character-filled kitchen with its open fire, beamed ceiling and Belfast sink. Enjoying a delightful rural location, this County Leitrim cottage boasts an enclosed, lawned garden with a babbling brook running alongside it, an enchanting place to settle together with a glass of wine and plan the next day's adventure. Occupying a wonderful position near the northern shores of Lough Melvin, holidaymakers can enjoy a scenic drive or cycle around the lough. The area is also renowned for its trout and salmon fishing. A short drive takes you to the friendly village of Kinlough, while only slightly further is the popular coastal resort town of Bundoran. Try surfing at Rossnowlagh, the home of Ireland's oldest surf club, or cross the border to explore Northern Ireland, where Lough Erne and the town of Enniskillen can be reached for an interesting day trip.
