Rebecca, is Glenn and Jacqueline’s mother, and keeps everyone on their toes! If you have been fortunate enough to have tasted her home made jam or shortbread on arrival at Drumlin Lane, you will know that this is a lady who knows her way around the kitchen. Cooking, organising cleaners, looking after her grandchildren, taking craft classes, playing bowls or contributing to the local community association, Rebecca is always on the move.
Drumlin Lane Holiday Cottages Northern Ireland were built, and are 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 at a time when then was no hotel in the Greater Lisburn area.
Committed to an environmentally responsible build, Drumlin Lane 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.
Built 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.
If you are looking for Holiday Cottages in Northern Ireland, we look forward to hosting you.
