Myself and my wife stayed here over a weekend whilst overseeing a Duke of Edinburgh expedition in the Mourne Mountains. Gerry keeps the place spotless and was busy cleaning away when we arrived.
The cottage is in a great location for exploring the region and is set in some breath-taking countryside.
We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to visit the area for a weekend or an extended break,
The cottage is situated in a beautiful location in the Mourne mountains, cut off enough to feel away from it all, but within 10-15 minutes can be in lovely seaside town of to Newcastle or other villages with places to eat or shop such as Castlewellan.
Gerry our host clearly takes pride in the wonderful holiday cottages and did everything to ensure we had a great stay.
The cottage itself is kitted out to the highest spec. So many home comforts and luxuries in all the rooms and everything catered for in the kitchen.
We hope to be back soon.
Four of us stayed in happyvale cottage from 15th July for 1 week ages ranging from 8 to 72. This was our first time and it won't be our last. The cottage is outstanding with everything you could possibly need. Everything was super clean and very spacious. The views were amazing and we were lucky to get good weather. The owner Gerry is very attentive and everything was catered for. We couldn't fault one bit.
Local amenities were all near by with castlewellan and tollymore 5 minutes away and Newcastle 10 minutes. Perfect holiday.
We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Bearnagh, as the cottage, facilities and location all surpassed our expectations. The cottage was so roomy and decorated beautifully and with modern, quality fittings. The well equipped and spacious kitchen was a pleasure to be in and stunning views from every window made this a most relaxing weekend. We even enjoyed the company of the sheep! Gerry the owner was extremely helpful and accommodating. We will definitely be back!
Excellent!.The location is amazing.
Gerry the owner is a very helpful man.
the house is very family friendly.
The quality and design of Bearnagh Cottage are exceptional and demonstrate that you don't have to compromise on luxury when staying in an eco friendly environment. There are spectacular views from every aspect with the sunroom designed to bring the outside in. We saw beautiful sunsets from this room. Both cottages are great value for what you get, particularly Meelbeg Cottage which is a smaller version of Bearnagh with the same high end facilities. I don't understand why they're not five star rated. Earlier reviews have rightly rated Happyvale cottages highly and the many return visitors says it all. I will certainly be one.
