Your hosts, Crofton and Hazel Mc Dermott, have been in the manufacturing/catering industry for the last 30 years running and expanding their own business.
In search for a new venture, they put their catering experience to good use and decided to open their home for a top quality Bed and Breakfast.
Hazel has always been interested in catering and hospitality, having completed a degree in Hotel Management, Tourism and Hospitality at the University of Ulster some 30 years ago.
Her top priority is to please the customer in a warm and welcoming environment, offering the best possible service with fine attention to detail.
The house itself is modern with each bedroom having its very own private en-suite for practicality. The house is finished to the highest possible level of specification with all bedrooms featuring a 40-inch smart led TV, a fast wired and Wi-Fi internet connection and DVD access to keep you thoroughly entertained throughout your time spent with us. We also have a cinema room which features a huge screen for optimal viewing pleasures and comfortable luxurious sofa chairs so that you can sit back, relax and enjoy your favourite movies. You must order this upon entrance or book it on demand.
If you have a craving for a cup of tea or coffee brewing in your stomach, you can use the tea/coffee making facilities included in each room and you can also feel free to use our kitchen if necessary. The house is ventilated using heat recovery so that all areas are serviced with fresh filtered air, a plus point for people who suffer from hay fever and asthma etc.
