    “An absolutely fantastic place to stay.”

    John and Kathleen made us very welcome form the moment we arrived. The scenic views from the house are beautiful. Nestled in a valley at the eastern point of Lower Lough McNean, the house is a stones throw form the lake and is surrounded by the most wonderful hills and countryside on both sides. Only 15 minutes’ drive from Enniskillen and access to all the shops you will need. The house was extremely well equipped and our hosts even left us starter supplies to get us settled in, you don’t ...

    John and Kathleen made us very welcome form the moment we arrived. The scenic views from the house are beautiful. Nestled in a valley at the eastern point of Lower Lough McNean, the house is a stones throw form the lake and is surrounded by the most wonderful hills and countryside on both sides. Only 15 minutes’ drive from Enniskillen and access to all the shops you will need. The house was extremely well equipped and our hosts even left us starter supplies to get us settled in, you don’t get that sort of touch in the more commercial lets. The house has four main bedrooms three bathrooms. There is a wet room on the ground floor which is a god send if you have anyone with a disability or more frail individuals joining you. We had two children with disabilities, one with autism and one visually impaired and the wet room suited their needs perfectly. A good size reception room, lovely large kitchen with all the appliances you need and a great sitting area at the rear of the house. The house is on a working farm but it doesn’t impact on your stay and the children with us loved seeing the young calves in the surrounding fields. We took two small boats with us to fish on the lake and John the host gave us access to the shore to launch them. For any fishing enthusiasts among your company the lake has a great stock of pike, bream, roach an perch. You may be lucky enough to land a nice brown trout. For walkers and hikers, you will be spoilt for choice, Cuilcagh mountain and the famous “Stairway to Heaven” is a must do. Cladagh Glen, Marble Arch Caves, Florence Court House, Castle Crom,and Pollnagollum Cave, which was used in filming for the popular television series, Game of Thrones are all nearby. Enniskillen has a host of attractions and you are an hour or so from the coast, Sligo, Donegal etc. If you get bored in this beautiful area, you are tired of life. We had a wonderful week thanks to John and Kathleen and the only regret was not booking it for longer. We were all so impressed that we will book it again for the same week next year. Can’t wait to go back

The property

Derriens Farmhouse rests on a working farm in the idyllic countryside of Letterbreen in County Fermanagh.

With a homely décor and a Smart TV, along with stunning views and adapted access and a wet room for wheelchair users and those with limited mobility, this property is ideal for those who want to feel thoroughly immersed in the farmland scenery, while still enjoying home comforts.

On arrival, ramp access invites you in, where you will find a traditional farmhouse kitchen fit with a dining table where you can plan your days out and an oil Stanley range, giving the property a true home-from-home feel.

From here, make your way to the sitting room and snuggle up in front of the electric fire while you watch a film on the Smart TV.

Make your way to the ground-floor bedroom, a spacious room with a king-size, next door to a wet room with a shower seat, making the ground-floor accessible and the home ideal for a multi-generational family.

Completing the ground floor is another shower room where you can freshen up after a day of wandering the picture-perfect countryside.

Upstairs, three more bedrooms rest, including two more king-size rooms, one of which has plenty of storage and a dressing table area, and a twin, which is ideal for children or friends sharing.

Outside, admire the views as you eat lunch out on the patio, or perhaps savour your morning coffee in the crisp morning air at the picnic table.

Venture outside of the farmhouse with a trip to the nearby Hanging Rock, cascading waters just a short drive from the house, or to Marble Arch Caves, where you travel the UNESCO World Heritage Site caves by boat or on foot!

For a more challenging day out, make your way to the Cuilcagh Boardwalk Trail for a steep walk through pastures and bog with lovely views of Northern Ireland's varying terrains.

Or for somewhere closer you can walk along to the nearby Lower Lough MacNean to enjoy a relaxing stroll.
