“Potters Cottage Ballydougan Courtyard Cottages”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We stayed here for seven nights

Very good location with nice restaurant and pottery next door
Staff of restaurant were very friendly and heipfull.

Food was excellent and service was good despite being very busy day

Cottage was well equipped and clean,
Laundry on site, Washing machine clean and modern although laundry room a bit sub standard

We had problems with vehicle access to cottages as owner and restaurant patrons parking block access to cottages.You have to walk in to cottages from restaurant
car park. Very inconvenient especially when raining.

Also had noise problems as Kiln is located immediately behind the Potters Cottage
When running made a loud low frequency noise which could be heard above the level
of the tv and was most annoying. Stopped at about 8pm at night.

When approached about vehicle access and noise from kiln owner (Sean) was quite aloof
and not helpful at all.Did not resolve either problem just advised that Kiln would switch off
at 8pm and that blocking of access could occur at any time, Don't know how we would have got our car out of the cottage car parking if we had not left early each day, As it was we were blocked on return twice.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

My wife and I first visited Balldougan Pottery whilst staying at my daughters' in nearby Craigavon. As her family has increased, we decided to stay in the ground floor Potters Cottage which was about 5 minutes away. It's self-catering but has an on-site restaurant for breakfast, lunch and afternoon teas and the owners and staff are very friendly. Our cottage had a large lounge/dining kitchen and separate bedroom and bathroom and private parking. It's a peaceful area with little traffic and the Pottery Shop is well worth a visit. We are currently planning another visit to my daughter and her family before Christmas and are looking forward to staying there again.
