We stayed only one night at Newforge as we were attending a friend's birthday party in a nearby town. We arrived after a long drive and ferry crossing from the UK with limited time to recharge, wash and change. The welcome was warm, genuine and we were offered fresh coffee or tea. The room we had was stunning and the owner had kindly upgraded us at no charge as they were not full that night. Our bathroom was wonderfully appointed, spotlessly clean and with an abundance of hot water and fluffy towels. A taxi was arranged for us, and on returning late that night our room had been turned down, shutters pulled and lights left on. After a peaceful night we feasted on a cracking Ulster breakfast and took time to wander around the beautiful mature gardens, hunting out the chickens who had supplied the eggs at our substantial breakfast. It was like The Secret Garden! This is an excellent place to stay; it still feels like a house and home but with all the conveniences of a top rate guest house. The welcome is warm, the owner clearly loves the property and its history and wants guests to feel relaxed. Many places could learn a lot from how Newforge create their guest experience. We will be back I hope!
