    “Just perfect.”

    In every way. Warm, kind, welcoming hosts, David and Sharon, and a beautifully presented cottage. Everything is of the finest quality. Comfortable beds, luxury bedding and towels, and a fully fitted kitchen. Cannot recommend highly enough, we are already planning our next visit.

The property

Perched on the outskirts of Rathfriland, County Down, is this wonderful two-bedroom bungalow, Glebe Farm Cottage.

Enjoying a superb location set upon the owner’s organic farm and with easy access into the town centre, Glebe Farm Cottage is a fantastic dog-friendly dwelling for couples or a family of four.

Leave your car in one of two off-road parking spaces before making your way into your new home.

Be welcomed into the sitting room, where you can look forward to evening’s relaxing on the plush seating in front of the crackling open fire as your favourite show plays out on the TV.

Conjure up delicious meals in the well-equipped kitchen/diner, ready to enjoy at the dining table for four over a celebratory bottle of fizz.

On warmer days, why not fire up the barbecue in the side garden and enjoy a spot of alfresco dining?

As the evening cools, make your way into the conservatory, where you can appreciate the lovely outlook towards the hen farm with chickens and alpacas roaming in the surrounding fields, it’s simply idyllic.

After a day of exploring, freshen up with a hot shower before catching your rest in one of two well-presented bedrooms, a double and a twin, both with plenty of storage for your belongings.

Head into the local town, where you can treat your loved ones to a well-deserved meal at Loft 56, grab a light bite from The Homeland Diner Café, stock up on essentials at the convenience store, or order in fish and chips, Chinese and Indian cuisine to dine in the comfort of Glebe Farm Cottage.

Keen walkers will delight at the easy access to the renowned Mourne Mountains, with various hiking paths leading to their top where you can expect exceptional views over the surrounding lakes, valleys and towns.

For a taste of city life, continue onto Newry, where you can enjoy leisurely strolls along Newry River, delve into history at the Newry and Mourne Museum, marvel at the remarkable Newry Cathedral, or tour the famous National Trust site of Derrymore House, a delightful house dating back to the 18th-century.

Take the drive over to Downpatrick, where you will find the attractions of The Saint Patrick Centre, the Downs Arts Centre, and the excellent St Patrick’s Golf Club.

Further afield is Armagh, where you can explore the museums of the Royal Irish Fusiliers, Armagh County Museum, visit the Armagh Observatory, or explore the fascinating ruins of Armagh Friary.

Your adventure in the Emerald Isle awaits at Glebe Farm Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of €250.
