“A little slice of paradise”
Reviewed August 2, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Cannot recommend this enough. An absolutely stunning and spotlessly clean bungalow set on the edge of Murlough Nature reserve. Beautiful views. The kids absolutely loved watching the horses and the rabbits in the field at the back of the property. So relaxing.
Such a warm welcome from Sandra and Ray. Thank you again

“Love this place.”
Reviewed July 24, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The views are stunning, their is a lovely though busy beach 15 minutes or so walk away. Mourne Retreat itself is beautiful, and so relaxing, I normally have sleep problems but got eight hours every night of our stay. Sandra and Ray made is feel very welcome, with lots of little touches, including staying on the phone to direct us to a less than satnav friendly location. Newcastle is as friendly a town as could be, and with gorgeous forests, stunning mountains and lovely beaches minutes away or closer. We will definitely return.

“Didn't want to leave”
Reviewed June 25, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Picture windows with views of the mourns and the nature reserve right on your doorstep! What more could anyone wish for.
We stayed here for my hubbys 40th birthday and couldn't have chosen anywhere more perfect.
The house is spotless, modern, so comfortable, bathed in light and equipped with everything that you could ever need.
We were a party of 5 adults and had 5 visitors for birthday dinner which we made in the beautiful kitchen and there was plenty of room for everyone.
We walked into Newcastle along the beach, watched the wildlife right outside the door and enjoyed the peace and quiet over a cuppa and the lovely treats that Sandra and Ray left for us on arrival.
We didn't have time to use the Xbox but had great fun in the games room and although we had amazingly warm and sunny weather we loved the gorgeous wood burner that would be lovely to gather around in the winter.
We really didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back.

“Awesome location!”
Reviewed June 14, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We really enjoyed our stay at the Mourne Retreat! What a perfect location! We were close to town for a bite to eat yet the setting was so peaceful. We spent each morning watching the swans on the water and the evening walking down to the beach. Would HIGHLY recommend this house to anyone who will listen! Thanks again Sandra!
