This sale represents a rare opportunity to purchase a traditional cottage in one of Northern Irelands most beautiful and unspoilt locations. Tara Hill Cottage has been lovingly restored and presented to the highest of standards. In recent years it has been successfully run as a holiday let with many clients returning on a regular basis.
