Holiday Rental House
The Cottage is a charming 2 storey house that was once the Head Gardener's Cottage on Temple House Estate. It is located in the middle of the sheep farm surrounded by lush pasture and native woodland. The large garden is enclosed, with BBQ, and child friendly. You are encouraged to hike across the farm, visit the lambing shed in March/April and go rowing on the lake. The boats are FREE. There is a Knight's Templar castle by the lake which is interesting and a ring fort on the lake shore. Temple House, a beautiful manor house, is operated as Country House accommodation and offers dinner Mon-Sat. You may wish to reserve dinner there on occasions too? There is lots to do in the area. - 3 championship golf courses at Sligo (Rosses Point), Enniscrone and Strandhill are fantastic. - Eagles ...The Cottage is a charming 2 storey house that was once the Head Gardener's Cottage on Temple House Estate.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

fa,mily house in great estate location
A charming cottage in a beautiful setting as part of an old country house estate complete with rolling fields and lots of sheep and with a beautiful lake and scenery with boats to hire and fish to catch (if you know what you are doing). House is fully equipped and functional rather than luxurious so perfect for a family holiday. Roderick and Helena are friendly and helpful when needed and easy to contact (as on site) but also don't get in your hair with unnecessary rules and restrictions.

Modest cottage on the amazing grounds
We absolutely loved our family stay in there. The owners are lovely and the area has lots to offer. There is a small lake with the rowing boat at the estate, great area for walks, old Templar tower and more luxurious country house which operates as a b&b/hotel... not many photos I could share though. We hope to be back in some time again! Best Regards.

Irish way of life
The cottage was beautiful. Surrounded by nature. There is a lot of from and a great place for kids. It was clean, didn't have to worry about a thing. A short drive into Ballymote city and Sligo town. I have been gone a few days and already miss it and ready to go back.
