    “The lane up to the cottage is long, very rough and difficult to negotiate.”

    ...

    The cottage is so small that comfort is compromised. The main television is so high on the wall and in such a small roo it strains your neck. Wifi/internet was only working for a day and a half out of seven. The bathroom: shaving light is on a wall with no mirror, the mirror being on the facing wall and around the corner of the shower cubicle making shaving very difficult. The wash hand basin is a corner one but there is insufficient space to stand face on to it. The surface around the basin is too wide making it a an over stretch when cleaning your teeth. The 2 steps to the front door are crumbling and the mats placed over them create a slip hazard. Being advertised as a dog friendly cottage it should also contain a warning about the sheep and other livestock in the surrounding fields. On a positive note the bedroom is a good size with a large comfortable bed and the views from the cottage are beautiful.

Two similarly decorated, detached ground floor cottages enjoying picture-postcard views of Carlingford Lough and the surrounding mountains - five and a half miles from the beautiful Northern Irish village of Rostrevor. Placed in an idyllic location and with some fabulous opportunities within easy reach, these cottages can be your homely stay all-year-round with friends, family or couples. Both properties benefit from wonderfully finished open-plan living areas, combining charming traditional features with stylish modern touches - both are dominated by stunning stone fireplaces housing enticing woodburning stoves. Pat White's and Mary Larkin's Cottages both host super king-size bedrooms which also offer luxury en-suite facilities, whilst Pat White's also contains a king-size bedroom for extra guests. Fully embrace this uniquely scenic location by taking a seat on the outdoor furniture and soaking it all up, perhaps treat you and your loved ones to a barbecue under the sun.

About the location

ROSTREVOR

Newry 8.5 miles; Newcastle 19 miles; Dundalk 22 miles

This beautiful village rests on the banks of Carlingford Lough and at the foot of the Slieve Martin in County Down, Northern Ireland. Rostrevor benefits from a selection of places to shop, eat and drink as well as a fascinating history which is dotted throughout the village. Lovers of the outdoors can trek the Rostrevor Forest. The village is known for its annual Fiddler's Green Festival held every July. Some of Northern Ireland's popular destinations come nearby, the stunning city of Newry is just over eight miles away and promises a fabulous day out with its architecture, canal and much else to see and do. Alternatively, Newcastle is a charming seaside resort should you seek a day at the beach. Cross over the border into County Louth in the Republic of Ireland and come across the town of Dundalk, certainly worth the 22-mile trip.
