This is more a large B&B than a hotel. Our room was a good size as was the bathroom. The grounds are lovely too. I liked the location of the house, being a little out of town, down a country road but not so far away that if you did have to pop into the shops it would only take five or ten minutes. The breakfast room was very large too and breakfast itself was very nice. There is a nice little sitting/reading room where you can make a cup of tea or coffee along with a selection of books and board games. Wifi is available although the signal was very weak. We could not pick it up at all in our room and had to go downstairs to the reception desk to get it. Even then it was still average. Overall, a very pleasant stay though.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled in the heart of South Down, our 18th Century Country House provides an excellent base at the foot of the Mourne Mountains whilst still being within easy reach of Newcastle and the many activities it has to offer.

For the more adventurous, we offer a fantastic location to begin to explore the varied terrain around the area, with plenty of outdoor centres to help you on your way, whilst the luxurious seaweed baths and nearby seaside spas offer a less strenuous way to recharge your batteries. Combined with breath-taking views, spacious and comfortable rooms and ever-friendly service, it'll feel like a home from home in no time! ... more less
