The Old Flax Mill was beyond expectations and exceeded ours. Our family (10) incl 2 grandchildren experienced a home that was perfectly located for N. Ireland, clean, plenty of space, quiet, extremely comfortable, relaxing and being a family together in an environment and setting that is second to none. The value of what we paid to the services and home...

Management response:

We are always improving our service offering and adding facilities, particularly pleased to be welcoming American guests to our shores and these guests appreciated the great base the Flax Mill provides for touring Northern Ireland

Management response:

Thank you for that very kind review which highlight the main features; great location, ample room in accommodation and in the common areas We have charged ahead with yet more renovation so there are some common areas in the annex not the standard of the main residence and hopefully they will be polished off very soon

The house has been renovated to a high standard, with premium bathroom fittings. There are 9 separate bedrooms- house big enough to take more if with children who don't...

Management response:

Gareth, that's a very kind review and again, apologies for the inconvenience of any upgrade works, in progress. The guts of that will be polished off by end of May. The other mill building will host its first wedding in October this year. We appreciate your stay and very glad you enjoyed the mill please come again. Its great to...
