My son and I visited Meelbeg Cottage ate Happyvale for three days in August. Gerry was a great host, helping my son hunt out local Game of Thrones filming locations. Stunning views of the Mourne Mountains, close by hiking, and short ride to Newcastle made this a relaxing place to finish our extended vacation in Northern Ireland. The cottage had a kitchen area/tv room, a very nice bathroom with warming rack and heated floor, and little bedroom with bunk beds. A great convenient place to explore the Mourne area.
The location is brilliant especially if you enjoy walking, the owner Gerry is very helpful and even delivers the paper to your door , can,t wait to go back , I don,t normally leave reviews unless it really deserves one and happy vale definitely deserves it
Stayed in Happy Vale for a week and have to say it was our best family holiday ever. Gerry was an amazing host providing a home away from home and providing everything that u could need or want in the cottage. It was immaculately presented and the close proximity to the Mournes was an added bonus.... the kids loved staying here and we will definitely be back to stay with Gerry again.
Great first class accommodation close to the beautiful mourne mountains and the tollymore forest.
Immaculately clean with everything you could ask for in holiday accommodation... including a coffee maker! A salad spinner! Somewhere safe for the bikes.
Gerry had thought of everything and it was evident.
Would recommend this whole heartedly to anyone wanting to be near the mourne mountains. Belfast within easy reach. Newcastle nearby for ice creams! Beautiful murlough beach not far away.
A great week- a true hidden gem that we will definitely come back to.
My family and i had a lovely stay here at meelbeg cottage.The cottage is very cosy and was more than perfect for us.Very modern with underfloor heating it was always warm.Situated in the Mournes and just a little drive to Newcastle,Rostrevor and Castlewellan there's plenty to see and do close at hand.The views from the top of the hill of Meelbeg are amazing so just check out some of the pics I've put up.Gerry was a great host and couldn't be more helpful and has all the knowledge of the local areas.Will be back again soon and fully recommend this hidden gem to anyone the homes are amazing, missing the peace and tranquility already.Check Google maps for my photos of happy valentine's.
Well if you didn't get it from the title....the location is stunning. Peace, tranquility and fabulous mournes countryside....not even storm Doris or subsequent weather couldn't dampen this trip.
The cottage is toasty warm, well equipped, clean comfortable and eco friendly...top marks.
Gerry is the only man I know who can fit 36 hours of work into one day! Nothing was too much trouble and rightly so he is very proud of his cottages.
We would highly recommend a stay here and will be pointing family and friends in his direction.
Look forward to seeing you again.
