“Views to make my heart soar!”
Reviewed May 28, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Brigadoon cottage was just as "advertised." The location was perfect for us, just 4 miles from our ancestral farm. The perennial garden, blooming apple tree, and views of the Mournes had us outside even in the chilly mornings and late evenings as we watched the shadows emphasize various parts of the Mourne Wall (which we'd seen up close on one hike.) A quick drive made visiting Castlewellan with McGinn's pub (with wifi, an amazing interior, and great food) and the traditional village center easy and we enjoyed a day-long adventure on a beautiful Sunday walking and hiking Castlewellan Forest Park. Super comfortable double bed with duvets kept us warm and the material for a fire was ready and we enjoyed two nights of burning wood (just like at home in Maine, USA!) Good towels and basic shower and kitchen set-up. Loved the neighborhood cat - the welcoming committee of one every morning and when we returned from adventuring. We'd have loved an outdoor table; ended up dragging the bench around the yard and patio to chase the sun and views. Totally enjoyed the album showing how Cindy and Leo took an old shell of a cottage and created the little haven they call Brigadoon. We did "silence" the cuckoo clock during our stay. Then heard real cuckoos in the woods elsewhere for the next two weeks! If you want peace and quiet - this is the place. Our only regret was not being in walking distance to a pub, since we sure didn't want to have any drinks with the driving on narrow roads, "wrong side," and unfamiliar car!!

“Charming”
Reviewed December 27, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

We had the most wonderful stay in this quaint cottage.From the outset we arrived for our Christmas getaway with the accommodation already heated, tree and lights twinkling. Total bliss to really get away from it all in front of a peat fire. We actually loved the fact there was no WiFi as it meant we could truly get away from it all. Our host Cindy was exceptionally accomdating and recommended the best local spots. We will certainly be repeating the experience as soon as possible

This is a real 'get away from it all' cottage with so much character. We had a wonderful 7 days here and were sorry when the time came for us to leave.
