“Absolutely fabulous.”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

A cosy comfortable extremely well equipped cottage. Spotlessly clean and has everything you could possibly need including an extremely welcoming host in Anne who went as far as hand delivering the tastiest sausage rolls in Northern Ireland. The views are stunning. We had a fantastic week in this extremely homely cottage & it was amazing to be able to lie in bed in the morning and look out over the sea.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this modern and very well equipped cottage. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. It's a great location for walking in the Mourne mountains and we'd definitely recommend it!

“Absolute gem at the foot of Mournes and beside the sea!”
Reviewed 10 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This beautifully situated cottage, at the foot of the Mourne Mountains and yet a stones throw for the sea is a gem of a place to stay. It has two good double bedrooms and all the mod cons.... and takes dogs!!!! Situated just out of the town but within easy walking distance means it is quiet and peaceful and has great views of the sea and the bay too. Spotlessly clean, with every thing you could possibly need (and more) in a self catering cottage. Anne the host and owner is genuinely lovely, helpful and professional. The visitors book testifies to scores of terrific visits and reviews. We will return, and in the near future. The town itself was perfect too... cocktails in the Slieve Donard Hotel, seaweed baths in the town spa, amazing walks on coastal paths, up the granite walkway up the mountain and beaches, lovely meals in town and fish and chips on the promenade, terrific bird life... and Otters!

“Cosy, comfy and perfect location.”
Reviewed 1 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We stayed here with our dog for a long weekend. Had a lovely time. The cottage is so warm and cosy. Anne is such a lovely person. She has thought of everything inside the cottage. There's nothing you need to bring. It's lovely to have somewhere so close to town and also to be able to walk up to the Slieve right behind you. We will definitely be back to stay here. We really love Newcastle and go there regularly on walking holidays. Would highly recommend this cottage.
