The property

Tucked away within a countryside position in County Leitrim, just a short car journey away from the town of Ballinamore, is this idyllic, Buttercup Cottage.

The location is brimming with lakes and rivers offering a tranquil base for two couples, friends or keen fishers seeking a well-equipped base to return to after an action-packed day.

Be welcomed into the spacious porch, where you can hang your raincoats and kick off your walking shoes before relaxing into your evening within the refreshing interior with carefully selected furnishings.

Curl up on the plush sofa and keep cosy in front of the woodburning stove which offers comfort during those chilly winter evenings before you head into the well-equipped kitchen to rustle up a tasty treat for you and your loved ones.

The kitchen comes with everything you could possibly need to cater for yourselves during a week-long break, as well a quaint dining table for planning the days ahead as you tuck into a delicious home-cooked meal.

As the evening draws to a close, follow the staircase up to the first floor, where you will find a choice of two double bedrooms, each boasting a charming interior design, quality linens and ample storage to house your personal belongings.

If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic setting, venture into the centre of Ballinamore where you will be delighted to find a lively atmosphere with traditional Irish pubs and a selection of superb restaurants, if you don’t feel like cooking one evening.

For those seeking fishing opportunities, the surrounding area of Ballinamore is a premier location for the coarse and pike angler, with 28 lakes within a five-mile radius which are considered the cleanest and lightly fished natural waters in Europe to choose from.

For something more active, look forward to walking alongside the Blueway on the Shannon-Erne Waterway or choose to cycle along the Kingfisher Cycling Trail and the Wildflower Mountain.

Other attractions include the Pol An Eas Waterfall, Lough Rynn Castle Estate and Gardens and Lough Allen, which offers opportunities for windsurfing and sailing.

Buttercup Cottage is an outstanding base for exploring the delights of County Leitrim.
