“Lovely tranquil location”
Reviewed April 23, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Stayed here for a week when mixing a family visit with a holiday in Northern Ireland. The property is in a very quite rural location, but is only five minutes from the main road to Belfast and the lovely little town of Hillsborough. The quality of the accommodation is top notch, with spacious rooms, well equipped kitchen and on suite bathrooms. The owners are friendly and helpful and the house has all mod cons. Would definitely use this property again and would recommend it to friends and family.

“Wonderful restful holiday cottage, excellently presented”
Reviewed March 20, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This is a real gem and a complete home from home. Extremely well presented, welcome pack on arrival, and really friendly owners. The area is great for walkers, we had our two dogs with us and the facilities for them were excellent. The cottages are located close to Hillsborough which is a beautiful small town with a number of great eating places. Only 20 minutes to Belfast by car, and a great shopping experience can be had just outside Lisburn. Give yourself a treat and book at Oatlands Self catering lets, we will certainly be back.

“Fantastic stay!!”

We had a fantastic stay here. It's beautifully finished, well equipped and immaculately clean. An absolutely ideal place for families who do not wish to squeeze themselves into a tiny hotel room, we had plenty of space for myself my husband and our 3 little boys. It's convenient by car to Sprucefield, Hillsborough Village, Lisburn, Belfast City Centre and The Outlets at Banbridge along with various other points of interest. Stewart is a most friendly, welcoming host and we felt very comfortable and at home here. I would highly recommend it and would definitely return.

“Beautiful cottage, very spacious and high quality”

Ideally located just a 5 min drive from the picturesque town of Hillsborough and about 20 mins to Belafast. Beautiful house just like a new build, very spacious rooms all with top quality furnishings and finished to a very high standard. A very warm welcome from the owner and a welcome pack of bread, milk , eggs etc. everything has been thought of. Certainly one of the best properties I've ever stayed in on holiday (better than home to be honest!).

“Great!”

This was a great little cottage to stay at! My husband and I shared this cottage with his brother and sis-in-law and their baby boy. Mr. Law is very kind and helpful! He made sure we had everything we needed, and was eager to help make our stay as relaxing and as stress free as possible! He even came to us asking us if there was any improvements he could make to the house! He is devoted to making his cottage a comfortable and relaxing home away from home! We hope to be able to stay here again!

“Excellent Stay at Oatlands Cottage”

people found this review helpful

We arrived at Oatlands Cottage to a warm welcome and a very generous welcome pack. We were the first guests at Oatlands and everything was very clean and the facilities just like home. Towels and bedding were also supplied which allowed us to cut back on our luggage by not having to bring our own. The cottage is perfectly situated and all areas of Northern Ireland are within easy reach by car. A car is essential but we knew this before booking. A short drive to Hillsborough provided good eating places in the evening. All in all, we would recommend this property to couples and families looking for a very comfortable place to chill on holiday.
