'The Bothy” is a beautifully converted traditional stone barn providing luxurious self-catering accommodation in the heart of the Sperrin Mountains. This recently restored building with exposed wood, brick and stone creates a warm relaxed setting from which to explore the natural beauty of the area. “The Bothy” retains all the beauty of the old without compromising on comfort. It is situated in Rouskey, a small hamlet along the Ownereagh valley, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. It is an ideal spot from which to explore the whole north of Ireland being approx one hour's drive from the north, east and west coast.

Beautiful home. Wonderful owners. Perfect location to tour Northern Ireland. We used this home as a base and returned each night to the sheep outside our window.

Lovely rental with a beautiful country view out the back. Perfect place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle. We enjoyed the open fire and the country walks nearby. The beds were cozy and the house was warm.
