Two well appointed lough-side cottages available to rent for self-catering holiday accommodation.
Perched right on the shore of a beautiful lake known as Sweethope Lough, which is extensively renowned for its trout and fly fishing, nestles this pair of single storey crofts which provide charming self-catering holiday cottages in an idyllic setting.
Built from traditional Northumbrian stone, these cottages offer a truly rural hideaway with a unique view. Surrounded by miles of open countryside and woodland the properties are positioned on the exclusive Ray Estate.
Formerly owned by the great inventor and industrialist Newcastle born Charles Parsons, the estate was purchased by Viscount Devonport's family in 1954. Since then the estate has been painstakingly restored and developed over the years by Lord Devonport.
Each of the cottages provides well equipped, comfortable holiday accommodation for up to four people. Both cottages share an outbuilding that provides secure storage of fishing tackle and clothing etc.
Both cottages provides entrance hall, one double bedroom, one bunk bedroom, one bathroom and a modern open plan kitchen/living area.
Each is well equipped including a washer/dryer, and No. 2 also has a dishwasher. Heating is by night-store and a wood burning stove with logs provided ensures a cosy living area.
The accomodation within each cottage is conveniently all on ground floor level and although they can be booked independently, an interlinking door can be unlocked to accomodate the gathering of families and friends. The living space is open plan with exposed beams to retain their character. Relax in front of the cosy wood burning stove and watch the flames dance after a day exploring the flora nd fauna in the surrounding area. Enjoy gazing at the stars, study the wildlife and watch the birds that regularly visit Sweethope Crofts.
