“Great house, beautiful location”
Reviewed 7 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We really enjoyed our stay at Fernhill Lodge. The house was beautifully clean and neat, the furnishings were lovely (really comfortable beds) and the house was supplied with all we needed for our family of 7 (including baby) to have a comfortable and relaxed stay. The two large bathrooms with seperate hot water supplies were great - no issues with two showers going at the same time! The house is spacious and the location is fantastic - beautiful views over the countryside, and so peaceful. The little extras were appreciated - cot, toys for children, books, WIFI. Pat, the owner, visited us to ensure we knew how to use the appliances and central heating and to check there were no issues (there weren't). Overall a great place to stay and would use it again if available.

“Clean Property,Poor Location”
Reviewed 19 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

We actually booked in 2015 the owner`s other property situated in the town of Banbridge.1 week before commencing our holiday to Ireland,I received a telephone call stating that we were unable to stay at the accommodation booked.I was offered this as an alternative.for which I had to accept as it was so short notice.
This property is situated 8 miles from Banbridge and 2 miles from Rathfisland. So a car is required if staying at this bungalow.(NO PAVEMENTS) Also during the hours between 6am and 9am,Fernhill Road is a very busy road with fast moving vehicles,which is situated at the end of the drive.Also be very careful coming out of drive as there is a blind summit about 50 yards on left.
The positive side is that the property is spotlessly clean.
If you do wish to book this accommodation. I suggest you do so through TripAdvisor NOT through PAT the owner.

Thank you, Trevor, for taking the time to review Fernhill Lodge. We are pleased that you found the property 'spotlessly clean' as expected.
You were offered (and ACCEPTED) an upgrade to Fernhill Lodge at a REDUCED rate.
Sorry, but we can do nothing about the location which, notably, is one of the main reasons our guests love staying here! Our other Tripadvisor reviews will verify this.
Thank you for posting your photographs. It is kind of you to warn our future guests about the dip in the road as you exit the lane. With the ever-increasing volume of traffic on our roads, we need to be vigilant, whether driving or walking.
Next time we will be happy to welcome you to our town-house in Banbridge.

Kind regards
Pat

“Great, spacious bungalow with fantastic views of Mourne Mountains”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Really great place to stay there were six of us and it was really spacious. Everything you needed was there even a games room. Fantastic views from kitchen window. Plenty of local pubs if you want a meal out The Albert in Banbridge and The Old George in Raithfriland. The owner of the property was very helpful and friendly. Would recommend this to family and friends and would even stay here again myself. Thanks again to the owner Pat we all really enjoyed our stay at your bungalow.

“The best family holiday we have ever had in Ireland”
Reviewed 30 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We have recommended this rental home to friends and family after they heard how much we enjoyed our break. The house was clean, spacious and very comfortable, it had all the essentials needed plus more, great taste in furniture. The owner of the property was very helpful and thoughtful. The children loved the outside space and games room. The weather and surrounding views were excellent. We would recommend to any family and would consider returning in the future. The whole family found this break relaxing.
