More about

Hezlett House is one of Northern Ireland’s oldest surviving buildings. The seventeenth-century core of it is of six-bay jointed cruck construction, divided into three rooms, with a roof thatched originally with flax, but now with straw. Later nineteenth-century additions and fenestration bespeak the rise in status of the Hezlett family, but the old part of the house is used to illustrate rural life in the past. The paintings, save two, are not indigenous to the property.
