Description

It is a thatched cottage, dating from 1690s, making it one of the oldest vernacular domestic buildings in Northern Ireland. The walls of the house are from earth and rubble while the exterior is covered in roughcast. The roof is thatched using wheat straw. Owned and beautifully maintained by the National Trust, the house is simply furnished in late Victorian style. The kitchen has an open fire, and cooking irons are found over the grate. An oak cupboard dates from 1701. There is a small museum of farm implements and the Downhill marbles collection inside the cottage.
