self catering mourne mountainsFreedom – you are free to do what you want, when you want. You get to decide the pace of the holiday. You can be up with the larks or lie into dinner time no one is going to be checking! Pack wellies, a waterproof coat and your swimming ‘cossie’ because in any given day you might need all 3! That’s just how we roll.

Space – with 8 acres on site, a river, garden and woodland walk you do not have to travel to enjoy the Mourne countryside. However, with access to the Mourne Mountains, forest parks and beaches within  easy driving distance there are lots of places to explore. Bring a map – fun to do a bit of old-fashioned navigation.

Food – local produce means that you will eat the finest of foods whether you are doing the cooking or eating out. Kilkeel harbours Northern Ireland’s largest fishing fleet of around a 100 boats.  Fresh fish lands regularly and supplies many of the local shops and cafes. A visit to local shop Seasource a co-operative run by local fishermen is a must.


Activities – sometimes holidays are lighting the fire, reading a book and enjoying a few glasses of wine. At other times planning days out and having lots of things to do is important. We have at 101 things for you to do when you come to stay.
