A great peaceful spot by the side of Spelga Dam - ideally located to access the walking in the Mournes. The house is immaculate, spacious and has a wonderful family friendly kitchen diner. You must park in the layby just down the hill and take off your handbrake, it's baffling fun!

Not long back from 2 weekends away at this beautiful house. It is first class accommodation right in the heart of the Mourne Mountains. This is the third time we have stayed at the house and the owners make you very welcome and really do accommodate for anything you need. The house sleeps 10 and is safe for children to... More

A group of 9 of us spent the Bank Holiday weekend here and I can't think of a bad word to say about the place. Everything is fantastic. Setting, fittings, space, kitchen contents - everything... 100% superb. The surroundings and scenery really complement the experience. Can't recommend highly enough.

All brilliant reviews are so accurate, no disappointment (even the weather was good to us). Met Kathryn on our arrival, so lovely and helpful which we really appreciated. A... More

The house is really well appointed very comfortable with a roaring fire and jazuzzi bath more like a 4* hotel. The kitchen is perfect for catering and entertaining... More

Wow! What a house! And what a location! The photos don't do this place justice - it's nicer than some 4* hotels I've stayed in. Everything is finished to a very high standard and the views are unbelievable. Will definately be returning.
