About this property
Molly’s Barn is a stunning, modern, purpose-built self catering property, nestled in the picturesque, conservation village of Loughgall, in the heart of County Armagh. The accommodation offers ’upside down’ living with the entrance at first floor level into the living area. Armagh is known as ‘the Orchard County’ and the ‘Garden of Ulster’. The village is at the heart of the apple-growing industry and is surrounded by orchards. This property boasts an open plan living space, and storage is available for bicycles or outdoor equipment.
Within walking distance is the Loughgall Country Park, a rural haven of relaxation and recreation. The emphasis here is very much on family pursuits, with a children’s play area, an adventure trail, trim trail, football pitch, tennis courts, cycling, fishing, golf, woodland areas and a large lake. Biodiversity activities in the area include the survey of wooden bird boxes, building of a pond dipping platform, hedge laying, tree planting, monitoring wildlife surveillance cameras and developing bird conservation areas. This is the perfect place to relax, unwind, experience and absorb nature at its best at any time of the day or night, or have a picnic while listening to the wildlife in the woods. In the springtime, there are few scenes more beautiful than rural Armagh during the apple blossom season on the second weekend in May where the beautiful pink and white blossom will provide a stunning background of 4,000 flower-filled acres. During the festive season, Armagh has a famous dramatic Georgian Festival, where Armagh shows off its rich Georgian heritage. Celebrations include the Great Georgian Banquet where guests will travel through the mists of time to Georgian Armagh, the Georgian Market, Children’s Christmas Market, horse and carriage rides along The Mall, live music, talks, tours and more.
