5 things to love about The Gate Lodge

The Gate Lodge in Fermanagh is like something from a fairy-tale… Your own little piece of cottage heaven set at the entrance to a grand old Irish Estate, what could be more romantic!

It’s pretty obvious there are lots of things to love about this gorgeous Northern Ireland Cottage, but here are my top 5…

5 things to love about The Gate Lodge

#01 Location, location, location!

Blessingbourne House

There is something about a large country estate isn’t there.  Just visiting one for a walk is nice enough, but actually staying on one, imagining you live in this beautiful place is something else.   The Gate Lodge is set down a quiet road behind electronic gates signalling the entrance to a 550 acre estate and the grand manor house (pictured above).  You can lord it up for a while parading about the estate as if it’s yours for the day – how lovely!

#02 The Great Outdoors

Blessingbourne Bike Trail

If you enjoy getting out into the open then The Gate Lodge is absolutely perfect.  On the estate itself you can choose from walking one of the trails, taking a boat out on the lake and even having a go on a world class mountain bike trail!  And beyond the estate you have the Sperrin Mountains within easy reach, as are Lough Erne and the Fermanagh Lakelands on the other side.

#03 Cosy warm interiors

The Gate Lodge

With its chocolate box exterior you hope The Gate Lodge has an interior to match, and when you step inside you won’t be disappointed.   You’ll find a charming open plan living area with a cosy wood-burner in the corner, 3 delightful bedrooms, one of which is en suite, and all of the mod-cons you can wish for.

#04 The little touches

The Gate Lodge

The first thing you’ll notice about the Gate Lodge is just how lovely your hosts are and how they go that extra mile to make sure you feel at home. Colleen Lowry who owns the estate will do everything she can to make sure your stay at The Gate Lodge is every bit as wonderful as you had hoped.

#05 Children will adore it!

The Gate Lodge

I have two young girls and in the short time we spent at The Gate Lodge they had the time of their lives.  Running through the woods, playing pooh sticks by the river, meeting all the animals at the little farm, playing at the park and best of all getting to know the resident pony Black Beauty.  This is holiday heaven for young ones, they just won’t want to leave…
