About Alder Cottage

A courtyard cottage on the Crom estate, finished with a homely interior and open fire.

Alder is a cosy cottage located at the heart of the Crom estate. It’s part of a complex of rustic cottages that have had many uses over the years including farm workers accommodation, a piggery and toy factory. 

Warm up by the open fire after a day spent exploring the beautiful Crom estate, which is set on the shores of the Upper Lough Erne. You can go canoeing along its trail where you’ll discover its scattered islands and narrow channels. 

Further afield, spend a day discovering Cuilcagh Mountain. Alternatively, you could take to the water at Enniskillen and board a boat to the nearby Devenish Island.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
