“Great Time! Lovely place to stay with great views of the sea!”
Reviewed May 1, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

10 of us stayed here for 3 nights over the duration of our wedding preparations and celebrations in the local Hugh McCanns.

The place is so well equipped and the owners make you feel very welcome! There is milk, wheaten bread and sofa bread from the local bakery there on your arrival. If you have any problems they are quick to resolve these :D The living areas are lovely and the kitchen is perfect for friends to gather and have fun. The living room is so cozy with its wood burning stove and great for chilling.

The house is big enough so that if you want a break from the other members of your party you can easily sneak off and read a book :D

Over all we all had a great time and would definitely like to go back!

Armitage House was beyond our expectations! It was so clean, comfortable and well equipped and very spacious. Everything had been so well thought out. We were able to accommodate ten adults and four children very comfortably.
The location was perfect with a wonderful sea view and within short walking distance of town centre.

Cannot express enough how great this house was. A group of 12 stayed in the house to celebrate a 40th birthday. The house has plenty of space and anything you might need. Great views, quick walk to the town, great rooms and owner was more than helpful. We will no doubt look into staying here again in the future. It felt like a proper getaway even though we live 30 minutes away.

Armitage House is on the seafront, close to the harbour the forests and mountains. Also, it is a short, but very pleasant walk, into the centre of Newcastle. Recently refurbished, the house is beautifully finished and the gem in the crown is the stunning kitchen and dining area which overlooks the sea. The house is great for a large group, everyone seems to have space, yet it also works really well for a smaller numbers. Several decent pubs and restaurants, a really good cafe and even a local convenience store are all just a short walk away. Simply perfect!

Excellent accommodation with all the services you could wish. Aga in Kitchen was a bonus as was the heating and laundry equipment. The house is on the beachfront and in walking distance of town, coffee ,bakeries and restaurants.
Golf was the reason for our visit and this was the perfect location!

11 of us stayed in armitage house, to celebrate a family birthday. We were greeted on arrival to a lovely welcome basket with wheaten bread and soda farls. A really nice touch. The house is in an excellent location and had plenty of room for us all. It was 10 minute walk into the town, with superb views on the way. The gardens were ideal as we had small children with us, so they could play in the secured front or back garden. The owner Michael, was extremely helpful with any queries we had before and during our stay. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing break by the sea.

We stayed at armitage house for 3 nights in june and really enjoyed the break, the house was magnificent, everything new, kitchen, showers, linen, towels cutlery etc, there were 7 of us plus baby of 15 months and everyone had lots of space, the house could sleep 10 people comfortably, The court-yard/garden at back was a real sun-trap, and only 100Mtr to shop for papers and ice-cream, the 2 local bars were only 300 mtrs away also. We were provided with a welcome pack of bread and wine and had use of lots of dvd's. The prom was a 10 min walk away and we had lovely sea views to the front and the mournes to the rear. a great place for bikers and walkers to stay. will be back again Ken.Henderson
