Hill Crest is one of two holiday cottages at this location. Croob View, a two bedroom home, is also available.

ViewsHillcrest, Drumlin Lane was built, and is owned and operated by the Harveys, a farming family who have lived for generations in the Hillsborough area. Recognising the tourism potential in the area, Glenn Harvey conceived of the idea of building holiday cottages or self catering accommodation at a time when there was no hotel in the greater Lisburn area.

Committed to an environmentally responsible build, Drumlin Lane Self Catering was designed and built with the environment in mind, giving travellers the opportunity to lower their carbon footprint, while enjoying their holiday in the idyllic Hillsborough countryside.

DruminlaneBuilt using Timberframe, and incorporating triple glazed glass, Drumlin Lane boasts high levels of air tightness, keeping the heat in and the cold out. Our rainwater recycling system collects rainwater from the roof that is then used in the toilets, washing machines, and outside taps. Solar panels help produce hot water, and a heat recovery system boasting 90% efficiency helps to heat the houses. Our heat recovery system also incorporates air filters, making life that little more comfortable during the summer for those with allergies.

With its own vegetable patch/garden 100 yards from the house, guests are welcome to indulge their green fingers, and we encourage our guests to enjoy the pickings from the garden in season. If you would be interested in you own allotment on site, please let us know.

On site, Drumlin Lane has its own 14' Trampoline, Table Tennis Table, Pool Table, and lots of books, games, and DVDs to keep everyone entertained. If you are bringing bikes or sporting equipment, we have lots of secure space for storage.

The cottage is unfortunately not viewable from the road. The cottage is at the end of the next left turn as you look. Nevertheless you can get a great idea as to what the immediate environment is like. Click on the icon in the top right corner to view in full screen. (Escape will allow you to exit full screen mode). Hold the left button on your mouse and drag to view from different angles. To move along the road either click the arrows on the road or choose a spot further along the road and left click your mouse once to advance! (If you don't move your mouse far enough away you will see a magnifying glass in your circle, move a bit further and it disappears. Click and advance! If you find yourself activating the magnifying glass simply right click and zoom out.)

You will have noticed a small window to the bottom right with a little yellow man in the centre. What you are seeing in the main window is the view through his eyes. This window can be enlarged by clicking the arrow in the top left corner. Use the '+' and '-' to zoom in/out. You can also drag the yellow man to e.g. the nearest town and have a quick tour before you arrive! Of course the blue icon represents the location of the cottage.

Have fun and we hope you enjoy your holiday ...
