    “Some areas of the cottage were dusty and in one bedroom we found some ones under pants and socks in a drawer.”

    - Frank, August 2023

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I'm sorry to hear that some areas of the cottage were dusty and that you found some clothes in a drawer. I take guest satisfaction very seriously, and I apologize that your experience didn't meet your expectations. I've asked my cleaning crew to be more thorough in their cleaning, and I've also instructed them to remove any personal belongings from the bedrooms before guests arrive. I hope you'll give me another chance to host you in the future. I've made some changes to the cleaning procedures, and I'm confident that you'll have a much better experience next time.

The property

Nestled in rural Northern Ireland on the outskirts of the charming, coastal town of Newcastle in County Down is Rocklea Seaside Cottage.

This wonderful, holiday home benefits from a breath-taking location with views of the Irish Sea and the summit of Slieve Donard as well as, off-road, gated parking, an enclosed, sea facing garden and a welcoming interior completed by three bedrooms; the perfect choice for families or friends looking to explore the wonders of Northern Ireland.

Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home and locate the sitting room where the crackle of the roaring open fire greets you, unwind here before heading into the fully-equipped kitchen/diner to prepare dinner.

Sample your culinary creations around the dining table or venture outside to dine alfresco whilst the Irish Sea provides an unbeatable backdrop.

Admire the sun as it dips behind the horizon before heading back inside to wash off the day’s adventure in the shower room ready to slope off to sleep in either the ground-floor twin or single or the family room with double and single on the first floor.

If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic dwelling, take a short drive along the coast into the heart of Newcastle where you can stock up on all of your self-catering essentials at local stores or enjoy a well-earned break from the kitchen with a meal out at Brunels or Villa Vinci which both serve delicious food.

While away your days upon the glorious shores of Newcastle Beach where you can enjoy leisurely walks in the sea air and admire sea vistas.

Keen ramblers can venture inland to Tollymore Forest Park to meander the abundance of walking trails or the brave among you can try to summit Slieve Donard which rewards guests with panoramic views across Northern Ireland.

Thrilling watersports such as banana boating, wet river bouldering, yachting and open water canoeing await in Warrenpoint at Carlingford Lough.

Make unforgettable memories at Rocklea Seaside Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
