Our family traveled to Newcastle to visit dear friends in the area before heading to a wedding in Co. Cavan. The home is bright and sunny, with stunning views from EVERY window (the mountains and a lake from the front, rolling green hills and farmlands from the rear). There was plenty of room for us and our 3 young adult children to stay. The 3 bathrooms were spotless, the beds comfortable, and the living spaces welcoming and well-appointed. Every detail was seen to for a pleasant stay, including freshly made scones, a warm apple pie, and milk to start us off. Next time we come over, we'd love to stay here again!
The photos just do not do justice to this beautiful home in a gorgeous setting, you need to visit it and experience it for yourself. Everyone in our party just instantly relaxed on arrival, just peace and tranquility helped by a luxurious house with beautiful decor. The owners were fantastic, checked us in early with fresh scones....., and provided lots of outdoor furniture and indoor games room for our children which they loved.
I would recommend this house to families, couples, friends,it would suit anyone. ,
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
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.
