We stayed in the Wheat Loft and found it very comfortable, Milk and fresh scones to accompany the tea and coffee provided made a nice welcome on arrival, Staff were very welcoming and made sure that we had everything that we needed. The cottage was lovely and warm, a very comfy bed and when we had breakfast, it was freshly cooked and most enjoyable. The ideal place when you are visiting family or friends as it gives you that little bit of space to kick back. Thankyou.

We stayed here for a very special occasion in July 2013 and were made to feel very welcome . Staff could not have been more attentive. Accommodation was quaint very clean and comfortable. The breakfast next morning was something else. Would thoroughly recommend.

We stayed here during August '13....we booked a 3 bedroom self catering cottage. The family were looking forward to a cosy, intimate 3 night stay and the anticipation was high.... the reality was somewhat different. Where to start?
1. The decor was grim. The furniture and furnishings were 'house clearance'....not 'shabby chic' just shabby!!
2. The bathroom was grubby with the cheapest porcelain and tiles and altogether a depressing environment and not a place to linger!
3. The exterior and garden areas of the complex were untended and unkempt. Such a shame, as with a bit of TLC it could be transformed.

What really encapsulated the overall experience far better than my words was the fact that there used to be 4 STARS on the outside wall however there are now only THREE. The screws that secured the fourth star remain in place and the outline is still visible. Enough said.

Room Tip: Try somewhere else

Over the weekend I was in Northern Ireland visiting relatives. So instead of booking into a hotel miles away we rented a cottage at the pottery. It is a nice secluded place. It has its own coffee shop/ restaurant. the cottages are fully equipped and kept in a very clean condition. All bedding and towels are provided. The staff are very friendly and very helpful. If you are visiting Northern Ireland and don't like the hustle and bustle of a large town/city. Then I would recommend the
Ballydougan Pottery.

My wife and I have stayed at Ballydougan several times, previously in the Potters Cottage, but this time, it was occupied, so we stayed in The Wheat Loft above. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, having a full Irish breakfast most mornings before leaving for the day to visit family nearby in Craigavon. The owners, Sean and Marie O'Dowd, and all of the staff, are always welcoming and it is a pleasure to stay there. We will be back again before Christmas.

Room Tip: Have a look at the website and see what suits you best, we've only stayed in the Potters Cottage and Wheat Loft, but I would assume all the others are up to the same high standard.
